Paper Abstract

X-ray C.A.T. has proved to be invaluable to display intracranial and orbital lesions and should be valuable in the thorax. However, instantaneous imaging provided by ultrasound allows the heart to be displayed while the lack of ionising radiation hazard permits its use in obstetrics and in screening healthy populations. In the non-gravid abdomen, ultrasound has many advantages including excellent resolution, no radiation exposure and economy. The relative merits of x-ray C.A.T. in the abdomen have yet to be evaluated.
