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.

A suspected pulmonary embolism on a conventional CT image is confirmed on a spectral CT by the presence of a corresponding wedge-shaped perfusion defect.

A suspected pulmonary embolism on a conventional CT image (left (or top), red arrow) is confirmed on a spectral CT by the presence of a corresponding wedge-shaped perfusion defect (right (or bottom), red outline). The spectral image was reconstructed when conventional CT images were not enough to form a definitive diagnosis. All data was acquired simultaneously using a Philips IQon Spectral CT scanner.
