Computed Tomography (CT)

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.

Clinical Example

A patient with left mubmandibular cardinoma, node positive, was treated with adjuvant radiotherapy to the submandibular region and ipsilateral neck following radical surgery. Anatomical changes during treatment resulted in the mandible dose being over the accepted threshold. PTV does cover was also compromised due to changes in CTV. Replanning brought Dmax to mandible to winin accepted limits. PTV and CTV were also turned to the optimal range.
