  • About this book

In January 1995, 300 participants from Asia, USA, and Europe lively discussed the "State of the Art and Future Aspects of CT" in Peking, China. The workshop was designed to cover all essential aspects of modern CT imaging including the historical development, different techniques, contrast agents, organ systems, and indications. The comparative evaluation of CT versus MRI and ultrasound was a central topic. Additionally, a special session was dedicated to "Angiography Tomorrow". This book summarizes the state of the art in both conventional and spiral CT imaging and provides some suggestions as for the future role of the method.
