about

This book provides structured up-to-date information on all routine protocols used for multislice (multidetector row) CT. The volume contains a detailed technical section and covers the prevailing investigations of the brain, neck, lungs and chest, abdomen with parenchymal organs and gastrointestinal tract, the musculoskeletal system and CTA as well as dedicated protocols for the heart. Separate chapters address the how-to of CT-guided interventions such as punctures, drainages, and therapeutic approaches. Each protocol is displayed en bloc, enabling rapid appreciation of indications and the necessary scanner settings.The second edition includes contributions by renowned experts in the field, who not only provide their clinical experience on each topic, but also give guidelines for indications, workflow, postprocessing and reconstruction algorithms. Praise for the 1st edition:"In summary, this is an excellent monograph to introduce the basic protocols regarding multi-section CT . Anyone who is working in this area would benefit from this text." (Radiology, 2004)"If you want to perform high quality CT studies, this is the book for you." (RAD Magazine, 2003)

Editorial Reviews

"In summary, this is an excellent monograph to introduce the basic protocols regarding multi-section CT . Anyone who is working in this area would benefit from this text." (Radiology, 2004)"If you want to perform high quality CT studies, this is the book for you." (RAD Magazine, 2003)From the reviews of the second edition:"This is an excellent introduction to protocols for multislice CT. . There is a particularly useful introduction on the technical aspects of multislice scanning. . The books is beautifully illustrated with superb tables dealing with protocols . . Chapters are extensively referenced. The book is well designed and will serve as an excellent guide for all CT departments. It should be a required reference text in CT scanning units." (A. K. Banerjee, RAD Magazine, June, 2006)"This volume published by Springer is essentially an English version of the successful Italian authored 'Emergency Neuro-radiology'. . This book is profusely illustrated with excellent scans and some nice diagrams. . The chapters are extensively referenced and up-to-date and the book will be read profitably by many practising radiologists who need to brush up on their knowledge of emergency neuroimaging." (A. K. Banerjee, RAD Magazine, June, 2006)
