Abstract: The intubated, critically ill patient often cannot suspend respiration long enough to eliminate severe computed tomographic (CT) motion artifact, even with current generation CT scanners. High quality, motion-free CT images were safely and easily obtained in two such patients using pancuronium bromide (Pavulon®) to achieve muscle paralysis.
