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.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:"The enormous impact that multisection CT has had on the practice of radiology is evident in this 628-page book . . Under 'Technique,' one can read about evaluations with CT from the earliest EMI scanner . to the current multisection CT technology. . remainder of the information contained in the chapters is well known to neuroradiologists. The value of this book lies in the techniques described and the explanations . of multidector CT. The book would be a good addition to a radiology department library." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 30, May, 2009)"There are 614 pages in this third edition of Multislice CT . . The aim and desire of the Editors was to provide fundamental knowledge on this field, coupled with the latest CT scanner technology, updating the important clinical scenario. . will be much appreciated by radiology community members as a contribution either to skilled personnel to improve their daily work or as an educational source for those in training." (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 114, 2009)"This excellent book on multislice CT scanning is now in its third revised edition and is warmly recommended for all radiology departments. . it provides fundamental basic knowledge with an update on the latest applications of CT to challenging and complex clinical issues. . in all the chapters there is a full discussion of technical aspects and imaging algorithms. . The quality of the radiographs and diagrams is uniformly excellent. The price is reasonable for a quality book of 628 pages." (Adrian Thomas, RAD Magazine, July, 2010)"In summary, this book has a cunningly wide appeal through its broad subject range and excellent referencing. It would be a worthy addition to many departments and libraries. . This book discusses how CT scanning has evolved and the pioneering achievements that have led to modern scanners. . it expands on the physics and throws light on difficult concepts. It increases and improves fundamental knowledge of the subject of MSCT at all levels and would be a useful adjunct for CT radiographers." (Simon McGurk and Barbara Nugent, RAD Magazine, July, 2011)"The authors have succeeded in providing excellent contributions on dynamic volume CT and other new applications. . The book is dedicated to all users of multislice CT by providing also optimal investigation strategies in terms of patient preparation, contrast medium administration and image interpretation. . used as a reference for the most recent updates in technology and the optimal use of multislice CT. The editors should be congratulated on being able to update a book that fast and up to a high standard of publication." (Th. J. Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 22, 2012)
