Completely updated to reflect revolutionary changes in technology and
practice, the Fourth Edition of this best-selling reference features
state-of-the-art coverage of multislice CT scanners and
three-dimensional imaging, plus a new chapter on the acute abdomen and
new material on CT and MR angiography, lung cancer screening, pulmonary
embolism, coronary artery calcium screening, and interventional CT
techniques including radiofrequency ablation and CT fluoroscopy. More
than 5,000 illustrations—mostly new 3D and multiplanar
images—complement the text.
Each organ system chapter
demonstrates imaging techniques, normal CT/MRI anatomy, and pathologic
findings. The authors indicate where MRI complements or supplements CT
or has supplanted CT as the primary imaging modality.
