This text covers everything from the basic x-ray photon interactions of CT to scheduling patients and properly organizing and displaying protocols. After reading this book, radiologists should have enough confidence to suggest changes to their CT protocol optimization teams. Likewise, non-radiology practitioners who use CT as part of their practice (e.g., radiation therapy physicist/ oncologists, cardiologists, dentists, surgeons, researchers, etc.) will find this text useful in getting better image quality from their equipment.

This text doesn't shy away from comparing features from different vendors. Providing vendor-specific information allows one to gain real-world insight into MDCT scanner reconstruction and AEC operation.

Reviews

"The CT Handbook very impressively conveys an appreciation of specific CT capabilities and features, clinical workflows and scan techniques, radiology networking and informatics, and the language to effectively communicate with radiologists and radiographers. It contains a wealth of practical advice and examples to draw on. [...] it is a practical and pragmatic handbook that will give medical physicists much of what they need to know to immediately begin working more closely with clinical colleagues to effectively optimise CT protocols."
- Laurence King, Principal Clinical Scientist at Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust, UK, in SCOPE, Dec 2020
