The role of X-ray in imaging has been largely superseded by Computed Tomography (CT) in most indications. However, X-ray still plays a role in some cases, particularly when the indication for imaging is not large enough to justify the larger radiation dose related to CT imaging.
After reviewing this article, the student should be able to:
- Explain the trauma and inflammation of the human skull through X-Ray.
- Define the anatomy of the human skull.
- Understand the parallel of X-Rays and CTs of the human skull.
- Identify the Hematologic Diseases through X-Rays.
