This unit of study looks at advanced CT concepts and imaging procedures. This includes applications that provide functional information or require more complex post processing. Cardiac angiography, virtual endoscopy, brain perfusion, portable, and interventional CT will be explored. The unit also examines the latest CT methodologies including volume imaging, dual source and muliti-energy CT, and the use of CT in other modalities such as molecular imaging and therapy planning. The physical principles, clinical application, and appropriate utilisation of these CT procedures will be explored.
