Summary:This book provides a detailed overview of state-of-the-art multislice CT, an exciting new technique recently introduced into clinical practice. An initial section acquaints the reader with technical developments and concepts, and their implications for routine protocols and research. Thereafter the focus is principally on the diagnostic applications of multislice CT in each of the most important anatomical regions. Examinations of the abdomen, neck, brain, blood vessels, chest, and musculoskeletal system are individually described and illustrated, due attention being paid to the special scanner settings necessary in each case. There are also sections on cardiac applications of multislice CT, an entirely new area of research, and interventional CT. In each chapter, the authors present the most recent research in the field and discuss its impact on clinical imaging and patient handling. This comprehensive book will be an invaluable asset to radiologists at all levels, and will be essential for all who are considering upgrading an existing CT scanner
