Developments in CT technology during the last 20 years have impressively improved its diagnostic potentialities. Part of a two-volume set that covers all aspects of CT imaging, Multi-Detector CT Imaging: Principles, Head, Neck, and Vascular Systems contains easily searchable clinical specialty chapters that provide specific information without need of an index. The coverage goes far beyond just a "how-to" or an encyclopedia of findings, however. The authors have uniformly put techniques, clinical findings, pathologic disease presentations, and clinical implications of imaging findings in practical perspective.

This Volume Features:

  • Discusses technical principles, CT perfusion, contrast media, postprocessing and clinical applications, and radiation dose
  • Covers imaging of the neck and brain, including paranasal sinuses and the ear, brain tumors, neurodegenerative diseases, CNS infection, and head trauma
  • Examines how to use CT data for planning cardiovascular procedures
  • Includes coverage of pathologies of the pericardium and CT venography
  • Presents information on clinical applications in lung disease

With the critical role CT plays and the rapid innovations in computer technology, it is no wonder that advances in the capabilities and complexity of CT imaging continue to evolve. While information about these developments may be scattered about in journals and other resources, this two-volume set provides an authoritative, up-to-date, and educational reference that covets the entire spectrum of CT.


"This book starts with a chapter on technical principles of CT that explains the basic physics in a lucid manner. There are chapters on contrast media and also on radiation dose that cover the necessary requirements of postgraduate examinations. In the system-wise chapters, this book is a good treatise on the imaging of those organs which have still a major role or exclusive role of CT, e.g., lungs, pancreas, and clinical conditions like trauma/emergency imaging. The book does mention MRI appearances and includes MR images where necessary, e.g., neuroimaging. The book has been printed on good quality paper and the binding is strong. … The book will be a good addition on the radiologist’s bookshelf and will be useful for day-to-day reference especially for emergency and trauma CT reporting."
