      New CT software programs allow rapid-sequence images to be obtained. During a period of 12 sec, multiple CT images can be produced, so that the progression of contrast flow at intervals of 1 sec or less can be followed. In addition, as many as 16 consecutive 3-sec scans can be performed, or arbitrary time intervals inserted between scans. The rapidity with which the contrast medium enters and leaves a specific tissue may be a valuable, non-invasive diagnostic tool in differentiating enhancing lesions. Other potential applications are mentioned.
