Clinicians weigh 64-slice CT's revolutionary potential

September 01, 2005

The first announcements came at the 2003 RSNA meeting, informing the radiology community that 64-slice CT would soon be available for clinical practice. Initial site installations by Siemens Medical Solutions and GE Healthcare began shortly after, in late spring and early summer of 2004. The introduction of this new technology came as a surprise to many, since 16-slice CT had been widely available only since 2002.

3-D renderings find role in musculoskeletal pathology studies

November 01, 2001

CT has always played a prominent role in the evaluation of musculoskeletal pathology. With the advent of spiral CT and, most recently, multidetector row CT (MDCT), the data sets available for image analysis and for postprocessing and display have unprecedented image resolution and detail. Concurrent with this advance is the development of postprocessing techniques, especially three-dimensional volume rendering.
