Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aminta I Aldape, BS, RT (R)(Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This combination textbook and exam review encompasses all of the important aspects of computed tomography (CT), ranging from patient care to cross-sectional anatomy, physics, and more. The books are well structured, complement each other, and focus on the important aspects today's CT technologists need to be successful in their careers.
Purpose: The books are geared towards meeting the needs of CT technologists looking to gain the necessary knowledge to produce quality work and consistently provide excellent patient care. They also help prepare technologists to sit for the ARRT exam for computed tomography.
Audience: There are many books on CT that overwhelm with too much information and are written at a level that probably would be more appropriate for physicists or physicians. These companion books for CT technologists really help to outline important key concepts. The books do a great job of presenting the information, which is not always so clear-cut, and offering several perspectives on the concepts discussed in different sections of the book.
Features: Chapters are brief, which is helpful in preventing information overload, and are filled with many explanatory charts, diagrams, and illustrations. The bullet-point format enables readers to focus on imperative information, and question-and-answer sections provide further review of the material. One of the best features is the use of cross-sectional anatomy images. Not only are actual CT images used, but the same images are also illustrated to further clarify the anatomy being depicted. Even though the author clearly states that the cross-sectional anatomy is considered to be more of an introduction, I would have liked to see more anatomy and more case studies. It would be nice to have another supplemental book focusing on just this. Access to both books online is another helpful feature.
Assessment: I would definitely recommend these books to any technologists wanting to learn more about computed tomography, or further enhance the quality of exams done in their line of work. CT has been around for several decades, and during that time the field keeps changing, evolving, and improving the way we scan and produce quality images. There are many helpful books out there, but they are out of date. These books are excellent and current.
