Advanced imaging of the abdomen

    Book Review by AJ. Aschoff

    This book is not a “CT book” per se, but is still reviewed for you on mdct.net. Why? Because in radiology, it is increasingly important to understand the context of a modality like MDCT within the rest of the diagnostic options available to the clinician and radiologist. To quote the author in his preface: “The emphasis is on the choice of imaging procedures, expected diagnostic yield, a discussion of the imaging findings, and the possible differential diagnosis”. The book is a reference book, intended to be used by more advanced readers, since common imaging studies of common disorders are are only mentioned briefly, and the focus is clearly on uncommon findings in uncommon diseases.
