Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Multirow detector computed tomography represents the most recent development in CT. With this method, a higher spatial resolution than with traditional methods can achieved. For the imaging diagnosis of aortic dissection, a complete delineation of the entire thoracic and abdominal aorta can be achieved within a single breathhold. In addition to depicting the dissection membrane, ischemic complications of aortic dissection are now amenable to imaging diagnosis with a smaller amount of iodinated contrast agent than was hitherto possible. The eight-slice multirow CT technique renders CT a highly competitive diagnostic choice when compared to currently available alternative imaging methods.
