%X Artifact is one of the most important factors in
degrading the CT image quality and plays an important role in
diagnostic accuracy. In this paper, some artifacts typically appear in
Spiral CT are introduced. The different factors such as patient,
equipment and interpolation algorithm which cause the artifacts are
discussed and new developments and image processing algorithms to
prevent or reduce them are presented.
