Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul D. Russ, M.D.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This text reviews the medical physics, database acquisition, image processing, and image display of multidetector CT (MDCT) scans. An extensive presentation of the use of MDCT in clinical imaging and diagnostic problem solving then follows.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to comprehensively review the current status of multidetector CT (MDCT) as a medical imaging tool. This text fills an important niche in the radiology literature. It provides an overview of MDCT at an appropriate level of understanding. A book dealing with MDCT is an important contribution at this time. The text does meet the authors' intended objectives.
Audience: The text is written for the radiological community. It is written for both residents and practitioners. The book is relevant to generalists and to subspecialists, because MDCT is now routinely used to image many different organ systems and provides unique information germane to diagnostic problem solving. The book successfully addresses its audience. The authors are well known experts in their fields.
Features: The book initially discusses the basic medical physics of CT scanning and its evolution to multidetector imaging. A particularly good chapter presents the principles and techniques of 3D rendering, including volume formation, classification and image projection. This chapter is well illustrated, depicting the unique imaging perspectives possible with an MDCT-derived volumetric data set. Subsequent chapters extensively deal with the utility of MDCT in imaging most organ systems. At the end of the book, a section of miscellaneous topics ties up loose ends. Color plates, demonstrating rendered colorized images, are interesting. Several clinical chapters would be improved if more nontransaxial images were used for illustrations.
Assessment: This is a very good text. The medical physics section is useful in understanding MDCT technology and image processing. The book nicely reviews the applications of MDCT in clinical imaging, bringing the reader up to date on its utility in diagnostic radiology. Some clinical chapters lose focus, presenting only a relatively routine treatment of CT, with little discussion and few illustrations of MDCT. However, in general, the book is a valuable overview of MDCT.
