CT imaging of craniofacial malformations

Neuroimaging Clin N Am. 2003 Aug;13(3):541-72. doi: 10.1016/s1052-5149(03)00061-3.


Because of its superior depiction of bone detail, CT is a useful tool in the characterization of CF deformities and presurgical planning. Modern CT scanners and workstations provide 2D techniques such as multiplanar reformats and 3D techniques, such as MIP and volume renderings, which may be used effectively in the diagnosis and management of patients with CF malformations.
