OverviewThis book provides a detailed overview of multislice CT, an technique recently introduced into clinical practice. An initial section acquaints the reader with technical developments and concepts and their implications for routine protocols and research. Thereafter the focus is principally on the diagnostic applications of multislice CT in each of the most important anatomical regions. Examinations of the abdomen, neck, brain, blood vessels, chest and musculoskeletal system are individually described and illustrated, due attention being paid to the special scanner settings necessary in each case. There are also sections on cardiac applications of multislice CT and interventional CT. In each chapter, the authors present recent research in the field and discuss its impact on clinical imaging and patient handling. This comprehensive book is aimed at radiologists at all levels.
