|Reference Source||AJR 1995; 164:917-922|
|Scanner Used||GE HiSpeed CT|
|Contrast Volume and Type||125ml of Iohexol 300|
|Area Scanned||Diaphragm to symphysis pubis|
|Length of Spiral (time)||32sec|
|Slice Thickness||3mm first 20sec, 7mm rest of study|
|Table Speed/Pitch||3mm/sec and 7mm/sec with a pitch of 1:1|
|Reconstruction Interval||33-43% overlap|
|3D Technique Used||MIP, shaded-surface, sum of pixel (ray-sum)|
- In other articles these authors found that MPR and 3D imaging were very useful.
- With newer scanners a single spiral is done without changing the slice thickness & keeping it 3mm throughout the study.
