Principles of CT: Multislice CT


Principles of CT: Multislice CT

Lee W Goldman. J Nucl Med Technol.


This article describes the principles and evolution of multislice CT (MSCT), including conceptual differences associated with slice definition, cone beam effects, helical pitch, and helical scan technique. MSCT radiation dosimetry is described, and dose issues associated with MSCT-and with CT in general-as well as techniques for reducing patient radiation dose are discussed. Factors associated with the large volume of data associated with MSCT examinations are presented.
