Abstract

Modern 1-s computed tomography (CT) scanners mostly avoid respiratory artifacts; however, especially in the case of reduced patient cooperation as in the examination of children, successive scans can cause an omission of anatomic levels. The purpose of this study was to avoid increased radiation doses in follow-up examinations in children with neuroblastoma without jeopardizing the success of staging, using spiral CT.
