With the advent of multidetector-row technology, excitement has returned to computed tomography. It is now possible to image faster and with better resolution than ever before; more importantly, the development of sophisticated image acquisition techniques has permitted the use of CT imaging in areas previously thought to lie beyond its scope. The knowledge, experience, and vision of a host of renowned international experts in cutting-edge thoracic applications of multidetector-row CT are condensed within this book. The result is a critical, comprehensive review of the novel opportunities, but also the new challenges, brought about by the development of ever-faster CT acquisition techniques.
