CT imaging has become a mainstay of medical imaging. After 30 years this is a mature technology but the accumulation of innovations over the past decades have given it extraordinary capabilities and new applications continue to emerge. In this book Alex Mamourian uses early CT technology toexplain the fundamentals of CT imaging and then builds on that base to explain how innovations such as slip-ring and multidetector arrays allow for rapid, high resolution imaging. This book covers complex applications such as CT cardiac imaging and dual-source dual-energy CT scanning as well as thepitfalls and artifacts that will be encountered in clinical practice. The book also includes chapters on the language of radiation dose and strategies for dose reduction that are essential for optimal CT imaging and patient safety.
The author, Alex Mamourian MD, began his radiology training over thirty years ago and just when CT was first arriving in radiology departments. His radiology training included a fellowship in MR imaging at the University of Pennsylvania and another in neuroradiology at the Barrow Neurologic Institute. He is currently on faculty at th...
