MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This multi-author work charts the development of computerised tomographic colonography (CTC), more commonly referred to as virtual colonoscopy, from the landmark presentation by Vining et al to the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists in 2004 to the present day. ... The book is beautifully illustrated and extensively referenced ... . It will be of interest principally to radiologists and those responsible for planning screening programmes, but is also recommended to anyone with a primary interest in the diagnosis of colorectal cancer." (Richard Novell, Oncology News, Vol. 8 (4), September-October, 2013)

"The book would be of interest to those in the radiologic sciences. In particular, I recommend it to technologists and radiation therapists who want to increase their knowledge of colon screening options and to learn why CTC could be a superior diagnostic tool over the traditional colonoscopy, fecal blood test, or barium enema. Therapists who want to learn more about testing methods and the diagnosis of colon cancer should find the book interesting, and radiologic technologists would gain insight regarding lowering patient dose from CTC." (Sherry Bicklein, Radiation Therapist, Vol. 22 (2), 2013)
