CT

Since its introduction in the 1970s, computed tomography has been a mainstay of radiology. Its overlay-free representation of body structures and the rapid availability of images make CT indispensable in the diagnostic assessment of numerous diseases, especially in emergency medicine. Modern CT systems not only offer innovative procedures for better image quality, but also reduce radiation exposure.
