Springer Science & Business Media, Mar 14, 2007 - Medical - 210 pages

Computed tomography (CT) is the most rapidly evolving medical imaging technology. This book describes current examination techniques and advanced clinical applications of state-of-the-art multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) scanners in chapters contributed by several distinguished radiologists and clinicians. Each chapter is written from a practical perspective, so that radiologists, residents, medical physicists, and radiology technologists can obtain relevant information about MDCT applications in neuroradiology, cardiac imaging, chest, abdominal, and musculoskeletal radiology subspecialties. Each co-author provides pertinent illustrations and tables for better understanding of current and advanced applications of MDCT scanners. Readers will benefit from the experience these authors describe in chapters on MDCT technology, contrast administration techniques, contrast adverse effects and their management, and advanced applications of MDCT.
