Computed Tomography (CT)

Computed tomography (CT) systems use a series of X-ray images to create an image volume dataset with slices that can be manipulated on any plane using advanced visualization software. The section includes computed tomography scanners, CT contrast agents, CT angiography (CTA and CCTA), CT perfusion, spectral CT (dual-source CT), and iterative reconstruction dose reduction software.

Einstein Healthcare Network found that use of automated power injectors reduced CT contrast extravasation rates over a 30-month period.
