Latest Helical cone beam computed tomography Stories
X-rays have changed the way we look at medicine and strong technology is allowing us to make the process safer each year.
Cone beam CT is superior to mutidetector CT for detecting superior semicircular canal dehiscence or the so called third window (a small hole in the bony wall of the inner ear bone that can cause dizziness and hearing loss) and it uses half the radiation dose, a new study shows.
A new study reveals current or heavy smokers who were screened with low-dose spiral computed tomography (CT) scanning had a 20-percent reduced risk of death from lung cancer when compared to patients who were screened via chest X-ray.
A special type of CT scan can help detect lung cancer early in smokers, reducing their mortality rates by 20-percent versus chest X-rays.
A national study of more than 53,000 current and former heavy smokers has demonstrated that helical CT scanning reduced lung cancer deaths by 20 percent compared to using chest X-rays.
A new approach to processing X-ray data could lower by a factor of ten or more the amount of radiation patients receive during cone beam CT scans, report researchers from the University of California, San Diego.
