Whole body computed tomography has developed at a rapid pace in the past
decade, spurred on by the introduction of spiral and multislice scanning. These
new technologies have not only improved diagnostic accuracy, but also made new
applications possible that were previously accessible only through more complex
or invasive techniques.

This new book expertly fills a gap in the literature by
combining the practically relevant technical background with the clinical
information required for correctly performing and interpreting CT examinations.
The book presents the state-of-the-art capabilities and requirements of CT as a
key diagnostic and interventional tool, with special emphasis on the role of
spiral and multi-slice CT.

You will find a thorough introduction to CT
technology from scanner design to 3D image reconstruction, useful practical
hints on how to optimize your examination protocols and how to keep the
radiation exposure of your patients to a minimum, as well as an extensive
clinical section in which symptoms, pathology and CT morphology are integrated
to provide you with the basis for subtle interpretation of CT findings using the
most modern CT techniques.

Highlights include:

Full coverage of single-slice, 4-slice and 16-slice
scanning techniques

Introduction to extended CT applications including
cardiac CT,CT fluoroscopy,and 3D image processing

Organ-specific protocols for scanning and contrast

Practical guidelines for maximizing image quality
and minimizing radiation exposure

Useful suggestions for image interpretation and for
avoiding pitfalls and errors

Convenient format by organ system and disease

Full discussion of organ-specific pathology and CT

CT indications integrated with other imaging modalities

At a time when CT examinations are becoming more
technically demanding and complex, with an increasing number of scan parameters
and advances in 3D reconstructions, this book is an essential professional tool.
Experienced practitioners will find their diagnostic and technical skills
improved by reading the book, and beginners will enjoy the clear, systematic
approach that will help them use the technique with confidence.
