About the book
The following project is dedicated to the current trends in the most commonly used imaging modality in the diagnostic imaging - computed tomography (CT). The uses of CT significantly expanded and it replaces successfully many conventional X-ray imaging studies including the contrast-enhanced ones. It has also the leading role in many diseases, despite the introduction of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), especially in the diagnosis of emergency cases. The aim of the book is to provide a detailed practical guide in the CT examination of the whole body, to offer modern diagnostic algorithms and protocols. Another key point in our project is directed to the use of contrast agents according to their informative value and risk for contrast reactions. The CT provides detailed information for the different organs and tissues in the human body, which allows the radiologist and the clinician to identify macroscopic pathology quickly. In conclusion in the book, we aim to offer a way to understand and apply the latest techniques with a completely updated text that presents today's most recent advances in CT.
