About these proceedings


Significant development made in the Siemens CT scanner SOMATOM PLUS have opened new possibilities for diagnostic imaging in computed tomography. Spiral CT with a continously rotating X-ray tube and synchronous table increments for up to 60 cm in less than half a minute make radiological diagnosis more accurate. Blind gaps are no longer a major problem, and all structures, especially in the lungs, can be identified and diagnosed. The practical experience of an expert groupof clinical researchers and physicists is now made available in this book.
