Multislice CT (MSCT) is a specialized CT system equipped with a multiple detector array that simultaneously obtains tomographic data at different siice locations. MSCT provides unparalleled capabilities for detailed analysis of normal and abnormal anatomy and pathology. MSCT facilitates a wide range of clinical applications ranging from 3D imaging to perfusion imaging to CT Fluoroscopy. Having the capability of rapidly scanning large longitudinal volume of patient with high z-axis resolution and true isotropic voxel generation, it offers new challenges and applications, not available hitherto with single-slice CT scanning. This article provides insight into the fundamental physical principles of multidetector CT and glimpse of its powerful capabilities in established and novel clinical applications at this present point of time.
