A Multislice CT Scanner: Philips 'Brilliance' 64-channel thin-slice

.

Computed tomography (CT) is a medical imaging method employing tomography.

ExplainedEdit

CT produces a volume of data which can be manipulated, through a process known as windowing, in order to demonstrate various structures based on their ability to block the X-ray/Röntgen beam.

Other usesEdit

Although most common in medicine, CT is also used in other fields, such as nondestructive materials testing.

SoftwareEdit

Modern software allows reconstruction in non-orthogonal (oblique) planes so that the optimal plane can be chosen to display an anatomical structure. This may be particularly useful for visualising the structure of the bronchi as these do not lie orthogonal to the direction of the scan.
