Advantages of 64 MDCT

MDCT64: Increased Scan Speed

  • Optimized pure arterial phase imaging
  • Optimimized vascular mapping including lack of venous contamination
  • Better definition of zones of differential enhancement (i.e. aortic dissection with true and false lumen)

MDCT64: Increased Scan Speed and Increased Coverage

  • Optimized pure arterial phase imaging along a large volume
  • Optimimized vascular mapping including lack of venous contamination
  • Optimized use of contrast volumes with potential for the use of lower volumes

MDCT64: Higher Resolution

  • Detailed vascular mapping
  • Accurate stenosis measurement
  • Better soft tissue detail
  • Optimized datasets for 3D volume rendering across a range of tissue types
