Spiral Ct

EBT is not widely available, and the high cost of equipment prohibits widespread use> MSCT has been shown to have most of the capabilities of EBT, with promise of wider availability. Unfortunately, the speed of acquisition (temporal resolution) distinguished EBT from the results of the slower images form spiral CT, and hence spiral CT has not yet proved to be a feasible alternative to electron-beam CT for coronary artery calcification quantification. Multislice CT has the new capability of obtaining multiple images simultaneously, continuously imaging, obtaining 4, 8 or even 16 slices at once. Each slice is still obtained with the limited gantry rotation speed, but simultaneous imaging allows for thinner slices and shorter scanning protocols (decreased need for long breathholding by the patient).
