About this book


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.
