Computed Tomography
By Ehsan Samei & Norbert J. Pelc

This book offers a comprehensive and topical depiction of advances in CT imaging. CT has become a variety one medical imaging modality, due to its superb spatial and temporal resolution to depict anatomical details. New advances have further extended the technology to provide physiological information, enabling an honest and expanding range of clinical applications. The text covers the most recent advancements in CT technology and clinical applications for the spread of CT types and imaging methods. The content is presented in seven parts to provide a structure across a board coverage of CT: CT Systems, CT Performance, CT Practice, Spectral CT, Quantitative CT, Functional CT, and Special Purpose CT. Each contains chapters written by leading experts within the sector, covering CT hardware and software innovations, CT operation, CT performance characterization, functional and quantitative applications, and CT systems devised for specific anatomical applications. This book may be a perfect resource for practitioners of CT applications in medicine, including physicians, trainees, engineers, and scientists.
