Multidetector-Row CT Angiography by U. Joseph Schoepf, M.F. Reiser

By U. Joseph Schoepf, M.F. Reiser

With the appearance of multidetector-row expertise, pleasure has lower back to computed tomography. it truly is now attainable to photo quicker and with larger answer than ever ahead of; extra importantly, the advance of refined photo acquisition innovations has authorized using CT imaging in parts formerly notion to lie past its scope. the data, event, and imaginative and prescient of a number of well known foreign specialists in state-of-the-art thoracic purposes of multidetector-row CT are condensed inside of this ebook. the result's a serious, accomplished evaluate of the radical possibilities, but additionally the recent demanding situations, caused through the advance of ever-faster CT acquisition techniques.

(2003) Detection of coronary artery stenoses with thin-slice multidetector row spiral computed tomography and multiplanar reconstruction. 1 Introduction Image processing and three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of diagnostic images represents a necessary tool for depicting complex anatomical structures and understanding pathological changes in terms of both morphology and function. The importance of 3D reconstructions is evident if we consider that the quantity of native images produced with new-generation cross-sectional techniques has become increasingly large.

The provided 3D visualization of the fracture has important surgical outcomes; in fact, on the basis of volume rendering, the correct surgical approach can be easily planned [14]. There are many areas in oncology that can benefit from volume rendering, for example to determine tumor resectability and preoperative planning for tumor resection in patients with a variety of neoplasms including pancreatic cancer, primary and metastatic hepatic malignancies, lung cancer, and renal cell carcinoma [3].

However, as relative CT attenuation values (∆HU, where HU is Hounsfield units), derived by subtracting background attenuation before administration of CM, are linearly related to the concentration of CM (iodine), CM dynamics may be described and expressed in these units [7, 8]. It is important to recognize at this stage that vascular enhancement (which is the topic of this chapter) and parenchymal organ enhancement are affected by different kinetics. , cardiac output, in liters per minute). , body weight, BW, in kilograms).
