Computerized (or computed) tomography, shortly CT scan, is an X-ray procedure that combines many X-ray images with the aid of a computer to generate cross-sectional views of body tissues and organs.
- Increased clinical value with exceptional image quality, advanced clinical applications and the ability to adapt to virtually all patients and clinical needs
- Excellent patient care with ultrafast 5 minute PET acquisitions, comfortable examinations and low patient doses
- Better return on investment with reliability, upgradeability and true, shared service utilization: CT in conjunction with high definition PET or stand-alone CT
High-resolution Computed Tomography Scan
Following are high-resolution computed tomographs of a normal thorax (except for some mild degenerative changes in the vertebral column) of a 37 year old man who presented with unspecific breathing problems, published with written informed consent. They are taken in the axial, coronal and sagittal planes, respectively. The slice thickness of 3 mm in this presentation is a bit thicker than a standard HRCT.
