Abstract

We find the slant-hole collimator to be useful for several noncardiac, nontomographic applications. It permits the acquisition of views that would be physically impossible to obtain with a conventional collimator. Caudal and/or cephalad views have been valuable in the evaluation of the posterior fossa, splenic trauma, and abnormalities of a rib, pubis, or sacrum. Oblique views have been helpful in the evaluation of the hepatobiliary system, vertebral body abnormalities, and renal structure.
