Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stephanie E. Spottswood, MD, MSPH (Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University)
Description: This book is a detailed review of spiral CT technology and its recent imaging innovations.
Purpose: Each chapter is written by a different contributor, but the approach to each topic is consistent with the following objectives: to provide a text for optimizing protocols for scanning, to instill an understanding of the specific advantages of spiral CT over conventional CT, to define routine clinical applications of spiral CT, and to introduce new applications of this rapidly changing technology. Each contributor easily meets these objectives on a chapter-by-chapter basis.
Audience: Written primarily for practicing diagnostic radiologists and radiology residents, a chapter on oncologic applications also contains useful information for the radiation oncologist on the use of spiral CT coupled with multiplanar reconstruction for treatment planning.
Features: This book is organized into six parts: Part 1 includes chapters on the basic principles of spiral CT, beginning with a description of the evolution of CT from its inception in the 1970's to the advent of spiral CT technology in 1990 to new engineering advances of the present. Included in this section is an important chapter on the pharmacokinetics of contrast enhancement with spiral CT and its clinical impact on body CT imaging. Additional chapters describe such exciting developments as perspective rendering, virtual endoscopy, and three-dimensional spiral CT angiography. A final chapter in this section is devoted to subsecond scanning and its unique applications for patients requiring three-dimensional reconstruction or other vascular imaging (e.g., pre-operative liver transplant evaluation, renal transplant donor evaluation, and pulmonary embolism evaluation). Thus, Part 1 provides a solid technical background for subsequent clinically oriented sections. Parts 2, 3, and 4 contain several chapters each on specific organ-system applications of spiral CT, all rich with illustrations and numerous examples. Part 5 covers musculoskeletal, pediatric, oncologic, and trauma applications of spiral CT. Part 6 is devoted to spiral angiography of the body and cerebrovascular circulation, with emphasis on 3D-spiral CT angiography.
Assessment: The only minor shortcoming of this book is repetition (in most chapters), of information on principles, techniques, and advantages of spiral CT. Although this format is repetitive, it allows for completeness if each chapter is read individually, and provides only a minor inconvenience when the book is read in its entirety. It is well-organized, clearly written, and beautifully illustrated. It serves as an update to a prior edition, presenting engineering advances in the areas of subsecond scanning, perspective rendering, examination of the esophagus and stomach, and dual phase spiral CT of the liver. A highlight is the section of excellent images of surface and volume rendering displays of imaging data, and the creation of endoscopic renderings (virtual endoscopy, virtual bronchoscopy, and virtual angioscopy). It should serve as an excellent reference for radiologists making the transition from conventional CT to spiral CT, as well as for those who are already familiar with spiral CT but have an interest in its newer, state-of-the art applications.

This slim volume describes spiral CT from basic theoretical considerations to the most advanced applications. Separate chapters describe the use of spiral CT in specific organ systems within the chest and abdomen as well as in the musculoskeletal system. Chapters on pediatric applications, oncologic applications, and CT angiography round out the volume. A single chapter on CT angiography of the cerebral vascular circulation is the only neuroradiologic inclusion. This book enables those who already have an understanding of the principles and interpretation of conventional CT to make the transition to spiral CT. Practical information regarding differences from conventional CT in technique and interpretation is included. This book is intended for practicing radiologists who now have a spiral CT unit or will soon have a spiral CT unit available for use. Residents in radiology will also benefit from this book. The book is logically designed, making it easy to find different subjects. Extensive figures and charts are all of very high quality and value. This is a very timely book as spiral CT units are rapidly replacing the installed base of conventional CT units. It is appropriate that a book such as this is available for radiologists to easily find the information required to optimize the use of these new CT units. The book is well written and edited and deserves a place on the bookshelves of bookstores, libraries, and individual radiologists. In the future, this information will presumably all be included in the standard textbooks of CT, but until that time this volume is quite valuable.

A textbook that can be used as a companion text to optimize scanning protocols as well as to understand the specific advantages of spiral CT compared with standard CT in the head and body. New applications of spiral CT including vascular 3D imaging are discussed in detail. Commonplace clinical applications, such as evaluation of the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, are all addressed with the specific advantages of spiral CT defined. Profusely illustrated of course.
