Blausen images[edit]

Blausen Medical has donated two images of CT scans showing general configuration of how the patient enters the machine, shown below. This article already has a lot of images, but feel free to use if useful. Dcoetzee 01:08, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

These images are very cool but I would not put them in the article with the watermarks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:03, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Background radiation and imaging quality?[edit]

Is there any known effect from background radiation on x-ray imaging? I don't see any mention of this in the article. I would assume that this may be an issue for extremely high sensitivity detector systems.

Rooms with x-ray machines are commonly shielded to prevent outward radiation leakage from the x-ray source. But for low-noise imaging it appears that room shielding may be just as important, to minimize background noise affecting the detectors, and thereby allowing reduced x-ray intensity during scanning.

Unable to edit and remove text from article....[edit]

On my PC and the most recent version of the page, February 29, at 00:23 EST, I am unable to remove a phrase occurring at the beginning of the page "Go to Apollo Hospital and do CT Scan, LOL! " It is shown on the article page, but does not appear in the edit page dialog box.
