About this book

CT of the Acute Abdomen provides an in-depth and comprehensive account of the use of CT in patients with acute abdomen. Recent significant developments in CT that are of relevance in imaging of the acute abdomen, including multislice CT and multiplanar reconstructions, receive particular attention. CT features are clearly illustrated, and pitfalls and differential diagnoses are discussed. The first section of the book presents epidemiological and clinical data in acute abdomen. The second and third sections document the key CT findings and their significance and discuss the technological background, including acquisition, reformatting, and surface and volume rendering. The fourth and fifth sections, which form the main body of the book, examine in detail the various clinical applications of CT in nontraumatic and traumatic acute abdomen. Full account is taken of new trends in the diagnosis and management of patients with acute abdomen, and the role of CT is examined in this context. This book will serve as an ideal guide to the performance and interpretation of CT in the setting of the acute abdomen; it will be of value to all general and gastrointestinal radiologists, as well as emergency room physicians and gastrointestinal surgeons.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A comprehensive review of the performance and interpretation of CT scanning in patients with an acute abdomen … . It will be of great value to trainees trying to come to grips with the use of CT for different clinical scenarios in relation to these patients, as well as providing a useful source of reference for those already established in this field of imaging. … It will be a useful addition to the collection of bench books in CT, or the library of training schemes.” (Paul Allan, RAD Magazine, June, 2012)

“The text provides an introduction … to each condition, followed by a discussion of clinical presentation, laboratory, radiographic, ultrasound and CT findings and possible pitfalls (presented and discussed in extenso), differential diagnosis, enriched by tables summarizing the most important data and proper and well reproduced images. … a user-friendly companion to general radiologists and most of all to Emergency Department radiologists, clinicians, and abdominal surgeons who will find a source of knowledge deriving from the large experience of the book’s editor and his co-authors.” (G. Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 118, 2013)
