From the reviews:

“Multislice CT of the Abdomen is a collection of monographs written by a total of 60 authors who hail from North America, Europe and South Korea, with the majority being Italian or American. … much to interest the radiologist who has a little free time and wishes to get up-to-date on a particular aspect of abdominal CT. … Illustrations are plentiful and of good quality and each chapter has a well-chosen list of references.” (Nick Reading, RAD Magazine, September, 2013)
