X-ray Computed Tomography

Of all the imaging modalities, X-ray Computed Tomography likely provides the highest 3-D anatomical resolution — 20-300µm. It is particularly useful for imaging organs and tissues, such as bone and fat. With the use of suitable contrast agents, however, it can also provide soft-tissue and vascular imaging. When combined with Positron Emission Tomography or Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography in a single hybrid system, it results in a single image of high-sensitivity functional and high-resolution anatomical data.
