Abstract

Standard computed tomography windows are limited in the thorax because they can only display 1 tissue at a time. Computed tomography window blending allows for simultaneous viewing of all 3 tissues in a single image, which may improve evaluation of diseases that contiguously affect multiple compartments. In this article, we use examples to illustrate the utility of window blending in aggressive infections, metastatic cancer, and penetrating trauma.
