Computed tomography standardization

Radiology. 1976 Jun;119(3):743-4. doi: 10.1148/119.3.743.

Abstract

Since the body of literature on computed tomography is growing rapidly, some universally acceptable expression for attenuation values should be adopted. In addition, there is controversy as to the manner of viewing CT scans of the torso: some prefer viewing from below, in the same orientation as conventional radiographs, while the authors prefer viewing from above, consistent with most cross-section anatomy texts and current cranial and body CT displays.
