Metal artefact

This occurs in CT imaging as metal has an incredibly high density, which heavily affects the x-rays travelling through it and this translates to a loss of information on the reconstructed images. At Fitzpatrick Referrals, we are lucky to have an inbuilt metal artefact reduction software on our scanner which really helps with this.
