Abstract

The growth and development of computerized axial tomography and its rapid acceptance by the medical community has had no parallel since the discovery and development of what Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen described as his “new kind of rays” (Roentgen, 1895) in the 19th Century. Enthusiasm for CT scanning is easy to understand. For the first time we can see images of the brain itself (or of other parts of the body).
