Multi-detector row helical CT in preoperative assessment of small (< or = 1.5 cm) liver metastases: is thinner collimation better?

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine the value of collimations less than 5 mm in detecting hepatic metastases 1.5 cm or smaller by using multi-detector row helical computed tomography (CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one patients underwent contrast material-enhanced multi-detector row helical CT before hepatic resection in this prospective study. Images were… (More)
