CT is a rapidly changing modality, with new clinical applications and functionality being released every day.
Manchester, UK (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
Radiology portal AuntMinnieEurope.com today launched its new CT Digital Community, a special section devoted to coverage of advances in computed tomography in Europe.
Much of the early work in CT was conducted in Europe, and some of the most important research on the technology is performed on the Continent. CT is expanding from its traditional role as radiology's workhorse modality and into advanced applications such as stroke assessment, cardiac imaging, and dual-energy imaging. New multidetector-row CT (MDCT) scanners and advanced scanning techniques are putting more imaging power at the fingertips of European radiologists than ever before.
At the same time, concerns about radiation dose have radiologists and vendors alike searching for ways to keep dose as low as reasonably achievable, and more consistent across medical imaging facilities for applications such as pediatric imaging.
The new CT Digital Community will enable AuntMinnieEurope.com members to track these trends with the latest clinical, socioeconomic, and business news on CT, according to Editor in Chief Philip Ward.
"CT is a rapidly changing modality, with new clinical applications and functionality being released every day," Ward said. "Our new CT Digital Community will offer a focused area where European radiology professionals can find breaking news on CT, months before it's available in print."
