The 2001 UK Radiological Congress (UKRC) was held at Wembley Exhibition Centre from 21st-23rd May 2001. ImPACT presented a session at this meeting entitled 'Recent Advances in CT Technology". The abstracts for the talks follows.
These talk aim to give an idea of recent history in CT scanner technology, look at the way it has changed clinical practice, and examine the implications from a variety of perspectives. Current hot issues and developments are discussed, particularly multi-slice scanning, and the session ends with a brief look into the future.
Part I: Introduction and Current Issues (view slides)
Brief history of CT scanning technology:
- Adoption and integration of formerly 'cutting edge' technology in routine practice
- CT Fluoroscopy - Real time CT scanning and interventional techniques
- mA Modulation - Optimisation of mA, dose and image quality
- Virtual Endoscopy - Applications in virtual bronchoscopy and colonic screening
- Multi slice Scanning -Introduction, detectors and slice formation
Part II: Multi slice scanning (view slides)
- Discussion of differences between multi and single slice scanners and their operation, and implications for workflow
- General - How multi slice scanning can change existing practice, and where its advantages lie.
- Cardiac - Discussion of various methods of cardiac imaging
- What will the differences be in five years' time? In particular, where is multi slice and CT in general heading. What new applications will be opening up?
