Beside methods of direct visualization of the nucleus based on stereotactic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the(More)

As a new application of helical CT scanning we evaluated the parameters for lung cancer screening with an extremely low doses and large helical pitch. On the phantom studies, the image quality obtained with the low dose parameter was not inferior to that of the usual screening technique but artifacts were increased with the large helical pitch. A scanning(More)
