Overall, I highly recommend Computed Tomography. Written by a true pioneer in the field, it is a high-quality addition to any CT library. In Willi A. Kalender was appointed full professor and director of the newly established Institute of Medical Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nurnberg, Germany. His main research interests are in the area of diagnostic imaging, the development and introduction of volumetric spiral CT was a particular focus. He is involved in many international research projects in the fields of Multimodal Imaging and Optimisation of CT and Dosimetry and others. November Willi Kalender was awarded the European Science Foundation's Latsis Prize which in was dedicated to the field of medical imaging.
Computed Tomography : Fundamentals, System Technology, Image Quality, Applications
The book is intended for all those who work daily, regularly or even occasionally with CT - physicians, engineers, technicians and physicists, as well as students learnig about CT. Written by one of the world's leading experts, it offers a comprehensive description of the theoretical and technical system fundamentals of computed tomography CT for a wide readership, from conventional single-slice acquisitions to volume acquisition with multi-slice and cone-beam spiral CT. It covers in detail all characteristic parameters relevant for image quality and all performance features significant for clinical application. Readers will thus be informed how to use a CT system to an optimum depending on the different diagnostic requirements. This includes a detailed discussion about the dose required and about dose measurements as well as how to reduce dose in CT. All considerations pay special attention to spiral CT and to developments towards advanced multi-slice and cone-beam CT.
X-ray Computed Tomography
X-ray computed tomography CT , introduced into clinical practice in , was the first of the modern slice-imaging modalities. To reconstruct images mathematically from measured data and to display and to archive them in digital form was a novelty then and is commonplace today. CT has shown a steady upward trend with respect to technology, performance and clinical use independent of predictions and expert assessments which forecast in the s that it would be completely replaced by magnetic resonance imaging. CT not only survived but exhibited a true renaissance due to the introduction of spiral scanning which meant the transition from slice-by-slice imaging to true volume imaging. Complemented by the introduction of array detector technology in the s, CT today allows imaging of whole organs or the whole body in 5 to 20 s with sub-millimetre isotropic resolution.
