Overview

A favorite of radiology residents and practitioners alike, CT, makes it remarkably simple to learn to perform and interpret CT scans for the entire body. It offers step-by-step instructions on how to perform all current CT techniques, and provides a survey of major CT findings for a variety of common diseases, with an emphasis on those findings that help to differentiate one condition from another.

The completely revised and updated Third Edition covers the most recent advances in CT technique, including the use of multislice CT to diagnose chest, abdominal, and musculoskeletal abnormalities, as well as the expanded role of 3D CT and CT angiography in clinical practice. Comprehensive in scope, but with a concise format, CT, Third Edition, offers today's most accessible, affordable introduction to body CT.
