  Abstract. A new and fundamentally different X-ray method is described. The cranium is scanned in successive layers by a narrow beam of X rays, in such a way that the transmission of the X-ray photons across a particular layer can be measured, and by means of a computer, used to construct a picture of the internal structure.   Books.

Computed tomography (CT) is a medical imaging method employing tomography. Digital geometry processing is used to generate a three-dimensional image of the inside of an object from a large series of two-dimensional X-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation. The word "tomography" is derived from the Greek tomos (slice) and graphein (to write). The First European Seminar on Computerised Axial Tomography in Clinical Practice. Editors: DuBoulay, G.H., Moseley, I.F the purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive introduction to the whole field for clin­ icians as weIl as radiologists.

99 patients with late epilepsy were investigated in our EEG laboratory. In intervals of maximal days (average 23 days) a waking EEG recording and a CTAT were carried out. The average age was % of the pathological CTATs were found in partial seizures with elementary symptomatology.

J Neurosurg –,   The introduction of computerized transverse axial tomography (CAT) is a major advance in the investigation of intracranial lesions [4,5]. The procedure is non-invasive and the X-ray dose received by the patient is no greater than that received during conventional skull radiography [6,7].

Axial transverse tomography is a method for making roentgenograms of a thin slice of the body in a plane horizontal to its long axis.

The fundamental principle in any form of tomography is that, of the three components participating in the production of a tomogram, i.e., the roentgen-ray source, subject, and film, two are moving synchronously.

We assessed the accuracy of LA transverse and antero-posterior (AP) diameters obtained from chest computed tomography (CT) angiography in patients with atrial fibrillation. Materials and methods: Nongated contrast-enhanced slice multidetector CT angiography (slice thickness of to mm) was used to measure the volume and transverse.

Depending upon the results of an X-ray scan, the patient may be referred for a full three-dimensional X-ray computed tomography (CT) scan for more detailed diagnosis. The basis of both planar radiography and CT is the differential absorption of X-rays by various tissues. Hounsfield, G.N. () Computerized Transverse Axial Scanning (Tomography).

Computerized transverse axial tomography (CTAT) of the brain has been used routinely, as well as the EEG, to study patients with epilepsy. In patients with the various electro‐clinical types of epilepsy — primary, secondary, and partial — it gave accurate information about the frequency, topography, and severity of morphological.

Abstract. This article describes a technique in which X-ray transmission readings are taken through the head at a multitude of angles: from these data, absorption values of the material contained within the head are calculated on a computer and presented as a series of pictures of slices of the cranium.A CT scan, or computed tomography scan, (formerly known as a computed axial tomography or CAT 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 .Transverse axial tomography of the spine is a radiographic technique in which one can portray any level of the spine in cross section in the living patient.

The examination provides a nondistorted magnified axial view of a preselected area of the spine and is a valuable adjunct to standard radiographic by: 6.
