CT scanning is now an integral part of everyday diagnostic procedure, yet the imaging technique must be good if the diagnosis is to be accurated. Here is the book that shows how to guarantee good CT scans! Patient preparation, slice thickness, IV contrast and other pieces to the puzzle of successful scanning are fully described. The consistent format allows easy cross referencing throughout the book. The sequences and protocols in this simple guidebook provide a sound basis which can be altered and adapted to suit individual needs. Practical CT Techniques has been written especially for radiographers, but junior radiologists working with CT for the first time will find it to be a useful introduction, too.
