Advantage of “Dynamic Screening” in Major Trauma Victims and Critical Care Patients
The use of “dynamic screening” has two great advantages in CT examination of major trauma victims and critical care patients. Data acquisition with one second scan time minimizes artifacts caused by uncontrolable respiration or motion. The scan rate of 12 images per minute allowes extensive scan series within a few minutes without significant loss of image quality. “Dynamic screening” makes CT of major trauma victims and critical care patients faster, easier and safer.
