Computed tomography scan software tools | Medical imaging
Utilization of computed tomography (CT) has increased dramatically over the past several decades. The total number of CT examinations performed annually in the United States has risen from approximately 3 million in 1980 to nearly 70 million in 2007. Integrating CT into routine care has improved patient health care dramatically, and CT is widely considered among the most important advances in medicine.
