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, practical guide and teaching file is the perfect introduction to MDCT volumetric imaging and 3D workstations. Designed 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 part of this book presents volumetric imaging cases that demonstrate the techniques described in the opening chapters. Cases are organized in sections--vascular, pediatric, trauma, body, cardiac, orthopedic, and neuroimaging--presenting the history, diagnosis, and clinical significance throughout. Each case features high-quality, state-of-the-art color and black-and-white images representing the clinical situations. Cases are chosen to emphasize specific techniques and teaching points.
Intended for quick access, this teaching file condenses the "must-know" information in MDCT volumetric imaging into one convenient source.
