Book Description

This book covers the engineering and clinical benefits in diagnosis of human pathologies, including the protocols and potential of advanced tomography scanning with very high quality CT images. With contributions from world-class experts, the book examines all aspects of CT technologies related to neck-brain, cardiovascular systems, thorax, abdomen and GI system, pelvis and urinary system, and musculoskeletal system. It also provides coverage of CAD applications to CT along with a discussion of the potential dangers of CT in terms of over-radiation, particularly related to children.

"Today it is difficult to find a book on CT imaging that provides an introduction into state of the art multi-detector CT technology as well as an in-depth description of normal anatomy and disease of all body structures. Residents in radiology and general radiologists will find everything they need for optimizing their CT protocols and the interpretation of CT images. The authors support their statements by references to recently published papers, which makes this book a good starting point for further expansion of knowledge and skills."
–Aad van der Lugt, Erasmus Mc University Medical Center Rotterdam, Netherlands

"The authors managed to provide a comprehensive and detailed radiology text book. …I particularly appreciated the imaging techniques descriptions; deep understanding of the technique is essential for imaging interpretation in today’s practice."
