About this book
Written by Scott A. Lipson, MD, an authority in the field, this book is ideal for radiologists, radiology residents, and CT technologists who are getting started in multidetector CT or who want to improve and optimize their CT service. This concise guide and teaching file is the perfect introduction to MDCT volumetric imaging and 3D workstations. Intended to serve as a practical, easy-to-read systematic learning tool, the book begins by introducing the reader to the process of image data acquisition, CT protocols, image reconstruction and review, 3D workstations, clinical workstation use, and CT workflow efficiency. The second section of this book is a volumetric imaging teaching file. Cases are logically organized by imaging focus—vascular, pediatric, trauma, body, cardiac, orthopedic, and neuroimaging—and present the history, diagnosis, and clinical significance. Emphasis is placed on specific techniques and teaching points. With quick access in mind, this teaching file condenses the "must-know" information in MDCT volumetric imaging into one convenient source. A wealth of illustrations, many in color, and tables adds to the user-friendly design.
