Abstract

Phantom studies were performed to develop a technique for linear tomography of the craniocervical junction with a digital fluoroscopic angiographic C-arm unit. Section thicknesses were similar to those used at conventional tomography, and the radiation dose was lower. C-arm tomography was possible with a 6-second exposure and a 40°arc. C-arm tomography is a practical method for decreasing patient turnaround time.
