Five percent of recurrences were detected through a computer-assisted tomography (CT) or bone scan.
Elucidation of these uncertainties requires the ability to study soil water drawdowns around plant roots quantitatively in situ in a non-destructive, non-invasive, and continuous fashion using a high resolution technique, such as computer-assisted tomography, applied to the attenuation of X- and gamma-radiation (CAT scanning) (Aylmore 1993).
