Transaxial tomography: an alternative to computerized tomography in pediatric orthopedic problems.

Abstract

Because of the information it provides, computerized tomography has gained wide acceptance. However, the radiation delivered is considerable, and the gonads cannot be shielded effectively. Transaxial tomography also produces a cross-sectional image. While the image has less resolution, it is obtained at a fraction of the exposure. The use of transaxial tomography in several clinical situations is outlined here.
