Review Text

From the reviews:

"MDCT: From Protocols to Practice has just been published. ... Throughout the book, the quality of the ... images is impressive. ... An important section of this book is the appendix, which contains all acquisition protocols for all CT scanners on the market. ... I personally found the book extremely interesting and useful with much information ... . I strongly recommend the book to radiologists in training and also to experienced colleagues." (C. Catalano, MDCT, March, 2009)
"The book emphasizes the practical aspects of multidetector computed tomography (CT) and is intended to be a valuable tool for radiologists, residents, medical physics specialists, and radiology technologists in everyday clinical practice. ... Overall the book is well organized ... . All chapters are illustrated with countless grayscale and color images of outstanding quality. I highly recommend this moderately priced technically oriented reference book to anyone who actively performs state-of the art multidetector CT. It is invaluable in everyday practice."
