About this book


This third revised edition of Multislice CT provides a comprehensive update on the newest developments and trends in the application of this exciting technique. Following an initial section on the most significant technical aspects and issues, detailed information is provided on a wide range of diagnostic applications. Imaging of the head and neck, the cardiovascular system, and the lungs is covered in depth, and a further section considers the application of multislice CT in a variety of tumors. Radiation exposure, CT angiography, dual-energy imaging, and interventions all receive close attention, and a final chapter examines the role of multislice CT in trauma management. Numerous highly experienced and well-known authors have contributed chapters from various perspectives, highlighting the possibilities offered by the most modern multidetector CT systems. This book will be particularly useful for general users of CT systems who wish to upgrade not only their machines but also their knowledge.
