Helical (spiral) CT of the liver consistently results in high quality scans as a result of the ability to image the liver in a single breath hold. Lesion detection is aided by scanning during the peak of hepatic enhancement, by the lack of respiratory misregistration, and by obtaining overlapping axial reconstructions. Because of these advantages, helical (spiral) CT is the preferred scanning mode for evaluation of hepatic disease.
