Overview

Acute CT is an exciting and challenging area of radiology which has largely replaced the more traditional forms of imaging in terms of emergency practice. Radiologists, radiographers, and anyone who is involved in acute CT imaging and its interpretation, need to keep abreast with the latest techniques in order to optimise the examination and gain the maximum diagnostic information from the images generated.Acute CT: A Primer of Emergency Imaging is a precise, up-to-date and comprehensive volume of a size and format that lends itself to easy reference. It forms an ideal bench book or pocket companion for junior radiologists who often have to deal with the demands of on-call practice. State-of-the art CT imaging protocols in the emergency and trauma setting are included along with protocol for the optimum use of contrast agents. The common emergency conditions and their differential diagnoses are presented in an easily read and understood format. This involves a 4-step practical approach.
