This book provides a comprehensive and user-friendly description of the theoretical and technical essentials of computed tomography (CT) for a wide readership. It treats in detail all characteristic parameters relevant for image quality and all performance features significant for clinical applications. Readers will thus be informed how to optimally use a CT system depending on their different diagnostic requirements. This includes a detailed discussion about the dose required and about dose measurement as well as how to reduce dose in CT.
