Technical characteristics, acquisition modality and data representations as well as examination protocols and main clinical applications of spiral CT angiography (CTA) are described. The different methods of 2D (MPR, CPR) and 3D (SSD, MIP) data display and their advantages and limitations were investigated. We describe the examination technique representing(More)
The authors describe an innovative digital chest imaging system (Thoravision, Philips Medical System) based on a selenium detector directly converting X-rays in electric charges detectable by electrometers, amplified and digitalized to be sent to the imaging processor. The study was performed on a series of up to 7000 digital chest X-ray examinations and a(More)

The authentication and verification of the geographical origin of food commodities are important topics in the food sector. This study shows the spatial variability in δ(13)C and δ(18)O of 387 samples of Italian extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) collected from 2009 to 2011. EVOOs' δ(13)C and δ(18)O values were related to GIS (Geographic Information System)(More)
