CT whole-body scanning in pediatric radiology
In an 8 month period 57 scans in 28 children have been performed using an EMI-CT 5005 General Purpose Scanner. Thirteen primary malignant tumours were evaluated, and scanning was of great value in localizing and delineating the lesions, and hence predicting the operability. Furthermore, secondary spread of malignant tumours was easily detected. In the continuing evaluation of treated malignant tumours CT has been used to estimate regression and relapse.
