The purpose of this book is to introduce radiography technicians and residents in radiology to the ever growing field of computed tomography i.e. using computer analysis of x-rays to produce cross-sectional images or "slices," both horizontal and vertical, of the body taken at different angles. Other titles on the science of CT go into too much detail for the average reader. This handy-to-use pocket book provides the information necessary to manage a CT scan, covering all the topics involved, and also suggests guidelines for the planning of advanced CT studies. In full colour throughout, and with a free CD Rom containing the 62 figures in the book, "Step by Step CT Scan" is an excellent pocket reference for technicians and radiology residents.
