Latest X-ray computed tomography Stories
Monitoring aneurysms with a less invasive option! Researchers are saying a simple contrast ultrasound is the answer.
Respiratory movement during radiotherapy makes it difficult to hit the right treatment target and this in turn can lead to an under-dose of radiation to the tumor, or a potentially toxic over-dose to the surrounding healthy tissue.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced a proposal to encourage X-ray manufacturers to consider children’s safety in the development of new imaging devices.
Advanced imaging has been identified as one factor that contributes to the overall rising cost of healthcare in the US.
Cervical spine CT examinations are unnecessary for emergency department (ED) patients who are a victim of "simple assault" or who have a "ground-level fall", unless the patient has a condition that predisposes the patient to spine fracture, a new study finds.
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.
Low dose whole body CT is nearly four times better than radiographic skeletal survey, the standard of care in the U.S., for determining the extent of disease in patients with multiple myeloma, a new study shows.
The use of a dedicated pediatric imaging department (with dedicated pediatric computed tomography (CT) technologists) for pediatric CT scans significantly reduces the radiation dose delivered to the patient.
