Volume-rendered computed tomography images of the surgical field for endolymphatic sac surgery.

Summary of "Volume-rendered computed tomography images of the surgical field for endolymphatic sac surgery."

Identification of the endolymphatic sac has failed occasionally. Postoperative complications have also rarely been reported. Given a safer and more reliable surgery, preoperative anatomical assessments are valuable, however, the vestibular aqueduct has seldom been seen with multi-planar reconstruction (MPR) computed tomography (CT) images yet. Our study aimed to determine the significance and utility of volume-rendered (VR) CT images of the surgical field for identifying the vestibular aqueduct, compared with MPR CT images.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.

A non-invasive method that uses a CT scanner for capturing images of blood vessels and tissues. A CONTRAST MATERIAL is injected, which helps produce detailed images that aid in diagnosing VASCULAR DISEASES.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.
