About this book


These exercises are meant for students and practitioners who wish to familiarize themselves with the normal and pathologieal computerized tomographie radioanatomy of the abdomen. The iconography is suffieiently characteristic to be read without the help of clinical or biological data. It comprises both normal and pathologie findings. Analysis of scans is comprised of two steps. The first part consists of the detailed study of normal scans, whieh serve as a reference. For this, eight main slice levels have been considered necessary and sufficient: neces­ sary since a certain number of slices are indispensable for the exploration of the abdomen; sufficient because a larger number of slices would risk rendering memorization difficult. The second part involves a study of the pathologie findings, organ by organ. Acknowledgements. Appreciation is extended to all those who have helped in realizing this study and, more particularly, to our friends and colleagues, J. L. DIETEMANN, C. Roy, J. L. BURGUET, M. VOUGE, and J. W. SOUITER. We would also like to thank Dr. J. WIECZOREK for his friendly assistance and advice in the planning and presentation of figures and schemata. 1 Technical Note Computerized tomography of the abdomen begins with an initial image called "scout view". This numbered radio graph of the abdomen is an analogous representation of the information and allows the location of the eight selected slice levels; these are represented by horizontallines. The slices are 10 mm thick and are taken at intervals of 2.5 cm.
