Designed to serve as an everyday reference and teaching tool, this volume is a practical, hands-on guide to the optimal clinical use of spiral CT. It contains 150 case studies that demonstrate where spiral CT should be used, what the specific benefits are, and how to perform the examination and interpret the results. Each case study consists of several images and a concise summary of the clinical history; the scanning techniques and contrast enhancement agents used; the imaging findings; the diagnosis; and how the diagnosis was reached. The case studies cover liver tumors, hepatic parenchymal disease, the pancreas, the spleen, the kidney, thoracic imaging, lung cancer, the musculoskeletal system, pediatric applications of spiral CT, oncologic applications of spiral CT, and three-dimensional spiral CT angiography of the abdomen, thorax, and cerebrovascular circulation.Spiral CT of the Body: A Teaching File is also available electronically on a CD-ROM produced by Medical Interactive.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Highlights the advantages of spiral, or helical computed tomography, primary among them the ability to obtain breath-held images of major regions of the body because the scans can be done in a ninth of the time of conventional or dynamic techniques. Not a comprehensive review of the pathology of the chest and abdomen, but a selection of examples, such as biphasic scanning of the arterial and venous phases, three-dimensional angiography, multiplanar reconstructions, and the optimization of scan acquisition during the contrast bolus. Pages of high quality black-and-white images face paragraphs on the findings, diagnosis, discussion, and references. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
