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.

No detours, more detail

For the Siemens Healthineers team developing new and ever higher performing computed tomographs is daily fare. But when they introduced their most recent CT system an unusual sense of pride was palpable. The photon-counting detector in the new Naeotom Alpha scanner is different from previous models and achieves a level of detail hitherto unknown.

Will CT scanning in post-mortem examinations mark the end of the scalpel?

Post-mortem CT (PMCT) increasingly supports pathologists, radiologists and forensic investigators particularly in cases of gunshot fatalities, mass casualties, decomposed and concealed bodies, fire deaths, diving deaths, non-accidental injury cases, and road traffic deaths, in which CT can indicate a pattern of injuries. In Dublin this August, the post-mortem (autopsy) technique was discussed…
