Computed Tomography (Ct) In Neurological Disorders

A native CT is used to quickly detect acute bleeding and various coarse structural changes without problems of contrast allergy or renal failure need to be considered.

The CT allows rapid, non-invasive imaging of the brain and skull. The CT is the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is superior in visualizing the Knochenfeinsturktur in the posterior fossa (but not their contents), base of the skull and the spinal canal. A native CT is used to quickly detect acute bleeding and various coarse structural changes without problems of contrast allergy or renal failure need to be considered. A contrast agent enables the detection of brain tumors and abscesses. With a intrathecal contrast CT abnormalities of the brain stem, spinal cord or spinal roots may represent (z. B. meningeal carcinomas and clamped disc), and a syrinx of the spinal cord can be detected. CT angiography with contrast medium used may be the brain vessels, so MRI or angiography are not necessary. Adverse effects of contrast agents are allergic reactions and contrast-induced nephropathy.
