    Abstract

    Recent improvements in CT software allow rapid and high-quality two- dimensional reformatting of scans of the spine [1]. Reformatting involves computer interpolation of two-dimensional multislice images acquired during routine axial CT scanning in order to generate a three-dimensional volume of data. From this block of data, new images are created and displayed in any desired plane. Reformatted images are acquired within minutes following axial CT scanning.
