Started in , this collection now contains interlinked topic pages divided into a tree of 31 specialty books and chapters.

      Computed Tomography (CT) was first introduced as a medical device in the ’s, and has since become a ubiquitous imaging tool. Recent technical advances including faster scan times, improved spatial resolution, and advanced multi-planar reconstruction techniques have led to the application of CT for the evaluation of numerous anatomic abnormalities and disease by: 1.   Background. Nowadays, computed tomography (CT) is becoming the major source of patient exposure. It has been estimated that CT examinations make up approximately 11% of all radiological procedures and that radiation from CT delivers approximately 70% of the medically-related radiation dose [].Approximately 6% of CT examinations were performed on children under the age of Cited by: 3.

    Computed tomography (CT), sometimes called "computerized tomography" or "computed axial tomography" (CAT), is a noninvasive medical examination or . Computed Tomography (CT) Abdomen/Pelvis CT scans (or CAT scans) are quick, non-invasive diagnostic exams used to evaluate a wide variety of pathologies. CT may be used to diagnose or evaluate internal injuries from trauma, cancer, infectious disease, cardiovascular abnormalities, and a multitude of other conditions.

Common use To visualize and assess abdominal structures and to assist in diagnosing tumors, bleeding, and abscess. Used as an evaluation tool for surgical, radiation, and medical therapeutic interventions. Computed Tomography (CT) - Abdomen and Pelvis Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen and pelvis is a diagnostic imaging test used to help detect diseases of the small bowel, colon and other internal organs and is often used to determine the cause of unexplained pain.

Recent significant developments in CT that are of relevance in imaging of the acute abdomen, including multislice CT and multiplanar reconstructions, receive particular attention.

A computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan allows doctors to see inside your body. It uses a combination of X-rays and a computer to create pictures of your organs, bones, and other tissues. F1: A computed tomography scan of the patient's abdomen and pelvis revealed an extensive, loculated fluid collection (arrow) encircling the distal rectum (*) with surrounding inflammation, consistent with a perirectal abscess.

Additionally, a thickening of the wall of the terminal ileum with a fistulous tract from the distal terminal ileum to cecum was noted but is not shown in this figure. A CT scan, or computed tomography scan is a medical imaging procedure that uses computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional (tomographic) images (virtual "slices") of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded ICDCM: A CT (computed tomography) scan, also called a CAT scan, is a type of specialized scan can show cross-sectional images of a specific area of the body.

Purpose: To perform a meta-analysis to evaluate the diagnostic performance of ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT) for the diagnosis of appendicitis in pediatric and adult populations.

Materials and Methods: Medical literature (from to ) was searched for articles on studies that used US, CT, or both as diagnostic tests for appendicitis in children (26 studies, Cited by: Computed tomography (CT) was used in the evaluation of patients suffering abdominal trauma.

The type of trauma was blunt in 78 patients, penetrating in eight, and iatrogenic in Forty per cent of cases had normal CT scans, while 60% showed substantial abdominal or retroperitoneal by: Computed tomography is ideally suited for detecting mass lesions and for distinguishing "solid" from "cystic" masses.

In the majority of cases, the recognition of fluid collections is unequivocal.
