ACT provides a volume data set out of a rotational acquisition with a c-arm-mounted flat-panel detector. Using this technique, radiographic myelography and myelographic computed tomography can be performed in a single session at the same imaging system. The quality of the reconstructed ACT slice images is comparable to those acquired by postmyelographic computed tomography. © 2006 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
