OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to optimize the scanning technique of first-pass 64-detector-row perfusion volume computed tomography imaging, to evaluate the effectiveness and stability of this scan protocol, and lastly to evaluate the differential diagnosis ability of perfusion imaging in solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs). METHODS A total of 144 patients with SPNs underwent perfusion scan with 64-slice spiral CT scanner. The CT perfusion imaging was analyzed for time-density curve… CONTINUE READING
