Product Description:

Whole body computed tomography has developed at a rapid pace in the past
decade, spurred on by the introduction of spiral and multislice scanning. These
new technologies have not only improved diagnostic accuracy, but also made new
applications possible that were previously accessible only through more complex
or invasive techniques.

This new book expertly fills a gap in the literature by
combining the practically relevant technical background with the clinical
information required for correctly performing and interpreting CT examinations.
The book presents the state-of-the-art capabilities and requirements of CT as a
key diagnostic and interventional tool, with special emphasis on the role of
spiral and multi-slice CT.

You will find a thorough introduction to CT
technology from scanner design to 3D image reconstruction, useful practical
hints on how to optimize your examination protocols and how to keep the
radiation exposure of your patients to a minimum, as well as an extensive
clinical section in which symptoms, pathology and CT morphology are integrated
to provide you with the basis for subtle interpretation of CT findings using the
most modern CT techniques.

Highlights include:

  • Full coverage of single-slice, 4-slice and 16-slice
    scanning techniques

  • Introduction to extended CT applications including
    cardiac CT,CT fluoroscopy,and 3D image processing

  • Organ-specific protocols for scanning and contrast

  • Practical guidelines for maximizing image quality
    and minimizing radiation exposure

  • Useful suggestions for image interpretation and for
    avoiding pitfalls and errors

  • Convenient format by organ system and disease

  • Full discussion of organ-specific pathology and CT

  • CT indications integrated with other imaging modalities

At a time when CT examinations are becoming more
technically demanding and complex, with an increasing number of scan parameters
and advances in 3D reconstructions, this book is an essential professional tool.
Experienced practitioners will find their diagnostic and technical skills
improved by reading the book, and beginners will enjoy the clear, systematic
approach that will help them use the technique with confidence.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
