Few Useful Websites related to Multislice / Multidetector CT scan

1. Multidetector CT from CTisUS is available from http://www.ctisus.org/multidetector/index.html
The section on Multidetector CT : the newest advance in CT technology, displays its capabilities in 3D imaging, CT angiography, and oncology. The material is divided into Syllabus, Protocols, References, Lectures and Case Studies in Head and Neck, Chest, Abdomen and Bone.

2. Impact (Imaging Performance Assessment of CT scanners) at http://www.impactscan.org/ is the UK's premier CT scanner evaluation center, funded by Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). This organisation provides a wide range of CT scanner related services to UK's National Health Service. The website offers absorbing and feature rich sections related to CT Scans that include a) Presentations (comprising ImPACT course and UKRC talks); b) Reports (that offers downloadable reports on MHRA evaluation, dose issues update, CT scan acceptance testing, What's new in CT in 1999 to 2004); c) Dosimetry and Scanner Testing; and d) a What's New Section which is a overview of events happening in the rapidly advancing technologies in CT. A page dedicated to Sir Godfrey Hounsfield at http://www.impactscan.org/hounsfield.htm, leads to "his autobiography and presentation speech on the Nobel web site". And lastly comparison evaluation reports at http://www.impactscan.org/bluecover.htm, "allow purchasers to make decisions based on independent and detailed information". These reports meticulously compare in detail, a range of CT scanners like dual, 4, 6 to 10, 16, 32 to 64 slice as well as Wide bore CT scanners.

3. Multislice-CT at http://www.multislice-ct.com. The site supported by Schering has sections covering "Introduction to MSCT Technology". There are examination guidelines for Head and Neck, Pediatric CT, Vascular imaging, Petrous Bone, Paranasal Sinus, Brain Perfusion and CT Angiography and so on. Colonoscopy, Coronary Bypass Graft, Calcium Screening and Lymph node staging are also discussed. Sections on hardware manufacturers, links to GE Medical Systems, Medrad is also offered. Special concise summaries on Data Handling, Bolus tracking, Dose Considerations and Contrast Material are available. The organizers of the Website offer a Newsletter too.

4. Multislice CT lectures are available from the Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Radiology http://www.indyrad.iupui.edu/multislice_ct/main.html. The following lectures are currently available on the website. The educative lectures available at the moment are Sweet 16: Basic Principles of a 16-Slice CT Scanner by Jonas Rydberg, Head and Neck Imaging Utilizing Multislice Helical CT: Techniques & Applications by Karen Caldemeyer, Multislice Helical CT by Jonas Rydberg, Musculoskeletal Imaging with Multislice Helical Computed Tomography by Kenneth A. Buckwalter.

5.
Multislice CT protocols from the University of Iowa is available online at http://www.radiology.uiowa.edu/CT/ms_ct_protocols.htm. The material comprehensively covers Body Protocols, Chest, Abdomen, Pelvis and also aims at specific conditions such as Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Dissection, Coronary Calcification, Pulmonary Embolism (PE), CTA Circle of Willis etc.

6. Multidetector-Row CT Protocols from Stanford University Department of Radiology is available at http://radiologycme.stanford.edu/protocols/2002/GE/index.html. The Multidetector CT Protocols offered is applicable to LightSpeed Ultra scanner fm GE Medical Systems.These protocols authored by Stanford University, is also available in PDF format.
