Since the first edition of Whole Body Computed Tomography was published in 1983, the field has been revolutionized by developments in hardware and software for CT units and new non-ionic contrast media, leading to shorter examination times, enhanced image quality and increased patient comfort. All of these changes and more are now included in the second edition, making Whole Body Computed Tomography the indispensable reference for radiologists, surgeons and internists. The second edition is presented in a totally new atlas format and has been expanded to include more than 1500 images, most of which are new to this edition and are of the very highest quality. Computer tomograms are placed alongside related line drawings so that readers can learn and apply diagnostic skills. The computer-animated graphics make it possible to reproduce CTs photgraphically with high precision. And, while the whole book has been updated, the kidney chapter has doubled in size, and a chapter on the techniques of computed tomography has been added. In addition to the basic anatomical information, chapters on physics, equipment and contast media are included. Each organ of the body cavity is examined in terms of anatomy and imaging, and examination technique: special emphasis is placed on scan both with and without the latest contrast media. Clinical conditions are described step-by-step, with CT findings immediately following. This systematic presentation of material facilitates information-searching, making Whole Body Computed Tomography an invaluable educational tool for beginners and an indispensible source for the experienced radiologist, physician and surgeon.
