          In just over one year since being published, The CT Handbookhas become one of MPP’s most widely reviewed and highly praised books ever.

          From Laurence King in IPEM SCOPE…"It contains concepts and practical pieces of advice that I have taken years (sometimes painfully) on the job to appreciate."

          From Markus Buchgeister in EFOMP Newsletter…" This excellent CT-handbook is a must-have for all those who are or going to be in charge of optimizing the workflow and protocols of the modern 'workhorse CT' of today's radiology department and who want to have it at hand in one volume!"

          From Roshan Samuel Livingstone in the Journal of Medical Physics…" With lot of practical illustrations and images, this book is organized for individuals who have basic knowledge in CT imaging. Overall, I would recommend this book for technologists, radiologist, medical physicists, and application specialists."

          A realization of Medical Physics 3.0 must involve an appreciation of the administrative, clinical, and technical sides of CT imaging. Since the author treats all of these facets in the book, it embodies the mission of Medical Physics 3.0 for CT.

          In addition, the 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.

          Special Features Include:

          Over 300 example artifact images.

          Multiple chapter with guidance on setting up protocols.
