The publication of proceedings of conferences has often been so delayed that they are useless both to active workers in the field and for cur­ rently appropriate teaching. Rapid publication on the other hand may impose very difficult conditions upon authors and demand unwelcome sacrifices. We wish. The organisers of ESCAT decided upon a largely didactic meeting with as little overlap as was practicable between contributions and a de­ termined attempt to view computerised axial tomography in the light of its clinical usefulness.

Computerised axial tomography demonstrated the presence of a mass lesion in the pancreas in 9 (64%) of 14 patients with histologically confirmed pancreatic cancer. Since this was a retrospective analysis, the percentage of false positive and negative results using this technique is not as yet by: 9. Computed tomography is an imaging procedure that uses special x-ray equipment to create detailed pictures, or scans, of areas inside the body. It is sometimes called computerized tomography or computerized axial tomography (CAT).. The term tomography comes from the Greek words tomos (a cut, a slice, or a section) and graphein (to write or record). Each picture created during a CT procedure. A. C.

  Computerised tomography (CT) scanning is used commonly in medicine today. It is similar to conventional radiology as it uses X-rays. Computerised tomography is also referred to as computed tomography. In order to obtain a CT scan patients lie in a CT scanner - Author: Dr Colin Tidy.   A computed axial tomography (tuh-mah-gruh-fee) scan is also called a "CT" or "CAT" scan. It is a painless test that takes pictures of the inside of the body. CT scans are especially good for showing bone, soft tissue, and blood vessels. These pictures are taken in slices.
