Spiral and Multislice Computed Tomography of the Body

The challenge:
Computed tomography has seen explosive growth in the last decade, spurred on by the introduction and rapid development of spiral and multislice technology. While these technological advances have greatly improved CT's diagnostic potential, image analysis and reporting have become more complex.

The answer:
This lavishly illustrated new book presents the state-of-the-art capabilities of single-slice and multislice computed tomography as a key diagnostic and interventional tool. You will find a complete introduction to the technical aspects of the design of CT scanners and the underlying data processing principles, followed by basic principles of patient preparation, scanning strategies, and image interpretation, providing "all you need to know" to get started with the newest developments in the technology.

Key features of this essential text:

  • Up-to-date information on 4- and 16-slice scanning
  • Guidelines for optimal use and interpretation of CT, including CT angiography, cardiac CT, CT colonography, 3D imaging, and much more
  • Recommended parameters for single-, 4-, and 16-slice CT that yield high diagnostic image quality while maintaining radiation safety standards
  • Convenient format, organized by organ system and disease entity, with CT indications integrated with other modalities throughout the book
  • Full discussion of all organ-specific pathologic findings

At a time when CT examinations are becoming more technically demanding and complex, this book is an essential professional tool. Experienced practitioners and residents will find their diagnostic and technical skills greatly enhanced by having this book at their side every day.
