The rapid evolution of multidetector-row CT (MDCT) provides the radiologist with unprecedented capabilities to acquire high-resolution CT datasets. The development of 64-slice MDCT scanners provide the capability for subsecond data acquisition of isotropic datasets. Many now are recognizing that these datasets represent far more than just a stack of images, but represent a volume of data that needs to be analyzed as a volume in what is commonly called volume visualization. Within this term lies a range of capabilities spanning the gamut from 3D imaging to CT angiography (CTA) to virtual imaging. Applications such as CT angiography, virtual colonoscopy, and 3D orthopedic imaging are becoming more mainstream, and new applications such as coronary CTA and runoff studies promise to be the next frontier in CT scanning. This course addresses the principles, exam techniques, and clinical applications in 3D imaging and CT angiography, with a special focus on new applications such as CTA and cardiac imaging.
