The creation of twin resource Computed Tomography (DSCT) in 2005 used to be an evolutionary jump within the box of CT imaging. x-ray resources operated concurrently permit heart-rate self sustaining temporal solution and regimen spiral twin strength imaging. the ideal supply of distinction media is a severe a part of the contrast-enhanced CT process. This publication offers an creation to DSCT know-how and to the fundamentals of distinction media management through 25 in-depth scientific experiment and distinction media injection protocols. All have been constructed in consensus by way of chosen physicians at the twin resource CT professional Panel. every one protocol is complemented via person concerns, methods and pitfalls, and by way of scientific examples from numerous of the world's top radiologists and cardiologists. This vast CME-accredited guide is meant to aid readers to accomplish always excessive snapshot caliber, optimum sufferer care, and an effective place to begin for the improvement in their personal exact protocols.
