Computed Tomography (CT) images used in evaluation of infectious disease
Computed Tomography images can help physicians differentiate between various types of infectious acquired diseases. Viral acquired pneumonia (incl. COVID-19) can be characterized by different patterns of lung changes and their locations1. High resolution (HR) lung images (slice thickness <= 1.5 mm) are required for evaluation of such lung diseases.
Through this eLearning series, we will share with you Best Practices on relevant CT Scan workflows for your SOMATOM systems as you and your institution face the demands and challenges brought about by SARS-CoV-2.
