CT Imaging Breakthrough & Detecting Carotid Artery Stenosis
A major milestone in CT imaging recently arrived. Radiologist Joel G. Fletcher, M.D, the Mayo Clinic doctor who performed the first cardiac scan on the new photon-counting CT scanner, will explain why this is such an important advancement.
