256 Section CT (Computed Tomography)
It was not possible to obtain sufficient quality images in the coronal and sagittal planes since conventional spiral CT devices are only capable of receiving images in the horizontal plane, that is, in the axial plane.
However, many diseases need to be examined in the coronal and sagittal planes, and MRI had a significant advantage over tomography, thanks to its ability to perform sagittal and coronal imaging.
New generation multi-slice CTs, on the other hand, can take images in the axial plane but with very thin slice thickness and fast. By superimposing these axial images in the computer environment, images can be obtained in the coronal and sagittal plane without any significant loss of resolution.
Thanks to this thin section capability, 3D imaging, and CT angiographic examinations have also become possible. As the number of detectors increases in these tomography devices, the resolution and image quality of the device increases.
256 detectors FLASH CT
Flash CT (next-generation multidetector CT) with 256 detectors is an advanced technology imaging method. With Flash CT, the slice thickness has decreased to 0.5 mm and the shooting speed has increased considerably.
Thus, small-diameter vessels that are affected by respiratory and pulse artifacts such as heart vessels and therefore difficult to visualize can be imaged in a very short time such as 1-5 seconds.
Moreover, this device has the important advantage of being able to shoot at high heart rates. Besides, the radiation dose, which is considered to be the biggest disadvantage of CT, is also reduced by 50-80% compared to former tomography devices. Applications of Flash CT are;
In tomographic examinations of the whole body
CT angiography examination of all body vessels
To obtain a high-resolution 3D bone and soft tissue image
CT urography examinations
Tomographic examination of the whole body
A “snapshot” of the anatomy can be obtained by tomographic examination of the whole body. Tomographic examination of the whole body analyzes 3 main parts of the body: lungs, heart, and abdomen/pelvis.
CT of the lung can detect early, potentially malignant tumors. Scanning in the heart can detect aortic aneurysms and calcium deposits within plaque in the coronary arteries.
Scanning of the abdomen/pelvis area can identify kidney stones and some cysts, enlarged lymph nodes, large abdominal masses, abdominal aneurysms, an enlarged spleen, a fatty liver, limited masses, and large pelvic masses.
For high-risk individuals, this screening offers early detection and immediate treatment. High-risk factors include:
An individual or family history of coronary artery disease
An individual or family history of an abdominal aneurysm
Being 45 years old or older
Smoking at least packs of cigarettes a day for at least 10 years
High cholesterol, diabetes, or high blood pressure;
A sedentary lifestyle
Concerns about abdominal and/or pelvic disease
