Innovative physics boosts MRI speed, cuts CT dose

August 01, 2007

Recent advances in fast imaging have provided radiologists with tools for simplified scanning and improved diagnosis. Real-time diagnostic capability gives radiologists unprecedented freedom to uncover pathology and measure its extent and severity. Multislice CT captures hundreds of slices per second, freezing motion and creating mammoth files of data for reconstruction into diagnostically relevant renderings of organs, bone, vessels, and disease.
