This book covers the engineering and clinical benefits in diagnosis of human pathologies, including the protocols and potential of advanced tomography scanning with very high quality CT images. With contributions from world-class experts, the book examines all aspects of CT technologies related to the neck and brain, the cardiovascular system, the thorax, the abdomen and GI system, the pelvis and urinary system, and the musculoskeletal system. It also provides coverage of CAD applications to CT along with a discussion of the potential dangers of CT in terms of over-radiation, particularly related to children. Volume 1: Multi-Detector CT Imaging: Principles, Head, Neck, and Vascular Systems Volume 2: Multi-Detector CT Imaging: Abdomen, Pelvis, and CAD Applications Edited by Luca Saba, Jasjit S. Suri REVIEWS "Today it is difficult to find a book on CT imaging that provides an introduction into state of the art multi-detector CT technology as well as an in-depth description of normal anatomy and disease of all body structures. Residents in radiology and general radiologists will find everything they need for optimizing their CT protocols and the interpretation of CT images. The authors support their statements by references to recently published papers, which makes this book a good starting point for further expansion of knowledge and skills." - Aad van der Lugt, Erasmus Mc University Medical Center Rotterdam, Netherlands "The authors managed to provide a comprehensive and detailed radiology text book. …I particularly appreciated the imaging techniques descriptions; deep understanding of the technique is essential for imaging interpretation in today’s practice." - Lorenzo Mannelli, University of Washington, Seattle, USA CONTENTS General Principles: Principles of CT Principles of CT perfusion, CT angiography, CT urography, and HRCT Use and application of contrast material Post-processing techniques in CT Radiation dose Computer-aided detection principles for physician Neck-Brain: Pathology of the head Pathology of neck (from infection to neoplasm) Neoplasm of the brain Degenerative disease of the brain and aging brain Infective disease of the brain Traumatic disease of the skull and brain Cardiovascular System: Coronary artery pathology Imaging of the heart Pathologies of the pericardium Pulmonary embolism and pulmonary hypertension Carotid arteries and Circle of Willis (including aneurysms) CT angiography of aorta (including thoracic) and splanchnic vessels CT angiography of lower leg and arms CT venography CAD system applied to vascular systems Thorax: Trachea and bronchi Infective pathology of the lung Degenerative pathology of the lung Pulmonary neoplasm of the lung Pleura, thoracic wall, and diaphragm Pulmonary lung CAD systems Abdomen and GI System: Liver Biliary system Spleen Pancreas Adrenal glands Pathologies of the stomach and small intestines Retroperitoneum Abdominal wall Pathologies of the colon and rectum Post traumatic and post-surgical abdomen CAD applied to gastrointestinal system Pelvis and Urinary System: Kidney and ureters Bladder and urethra Male pelvis: prostate, seminal vesicles, and testes Female pelvis: uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and vagina Musculoskeletal System: Degenerative disease of the spine Inflammatory disease of the spine Neoplasms of the spine Sacrum-iliac pathology Leg and arm Pathology of the muscles Special Applications: Pediatric application Dual source CT: tissue characterization CAD Applications to CT: CAD CT Lung Application CAT CT Vascular Application
