Radiologists Adjusting to Revolution in CT

JAMA. 2006;295(7):745-746. doi:10.1001/jama.295.7.745

Chicago—The emergence of 64-slice computed tomography (CT) is shaping up to be more than simply the next stage in the evolution of noninvasive diagnostic imaging. Radiologists are viewing it as a revolution, opening the possibilities of images neither they nor referring physicians have yet considered.
