Abstract
Eight board certified diagnostic radiologists reviewed 37 tomographic examinations obtained by routine technique and dynamic technique (dynamic tomography). Based on responses to four questions, the routine tomographic technique was strongly preferred for the three different organ systems examined, (kidney, lung/mediastinum, and bone). However, selected patients benefit from the current form of dynamic tomography because of shorter examination time. Radiation exposure is also reduced. Other advantages of dynamic tomography are discussed.
