CT Window Blending for Evaluation of Multicompartmental Thoracic Pathology.

Author information

From the Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.


Standard computed tomography windows are limited in the thorax because they can only display 1 tissue at a time. Computed tomography window blending allows for simultaneous viewing of all 3 tissues in a single image, which may improve evaluation of diseases that contiguously affect multiple compartments. In this article, we use examples to illustrate the utility of window blending in aggressive infections, metastatic cancer, and penetrating trauma.
