Abstract
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become the standard of reference in dental imaging. The distribution of CBCT devices is increasingly wide, and the number of required examinations is constantly growing. In this setting, it is now essential that medical and technical staff receive specific training in the use of CBCT and that technical guidelines for CBCT examinations are established. This clearly structured book on CBCT will be an ideal aid in daily clinical practice. It clearly explains basic CBCT anatomy, examination technique, and the use of 3D reformatting software. A wide range of cases are presented, covering the most frequent and relevant conditions and pathologies, including dental anomalies, inflammatory and degenerative disease, tumors, and implants.

Advances in computed tomography have made it possible to detect small lung cancers, which has changed lung cancer surgery from lobectomy to a lesser lobar resection such as a segmentectomy or wedge resection. Although wedge resection is a simple procedure, it has a higher risk of hilar lymph node or surgical margin recurrence than does a lobectomy.

Abstract
Advances in computed tomography have made it possible to detect small lung cancers, which has changed lung cancer surgery from lobectomy to a lesser lobar resection such as a segmentectomy or wedge resection. Although wedge resection is a simple procedure, it has a higher risk of hilar lymph node or surgical margin recurrence than does a lobectomy. On the other hand, segmentectomy is a well-known curative surgery for small lung cancers. It is difficult to perform accurately, however, because of its anatomical complexity, which makes surgeons hesitant to use it. Illustrated Anatomical Segmentectomy for Lung Cancer provides readers a detailed explanation of segmentectomy with numerous easy-to-understand color illustrations showing the precise segmental anatomies for each pattern of the procedure. To better illustrate an accurate anatomical segmentectomy, the text shows details of anatomy during the procedure. Up to 25 patterns can be involved, each of which is shown in approximately 10 illustrations.

Abstract
Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in Western countries. In non-fatal cases, they are associated with a decreased quality of life as well as a substantial economic burden to society. Most sudden cardiac events are related to the complications of a non-stenosing marginal plaque. For this reason, the ability to properly identify the atherosclerotic plaque with rapid, non-invasive techniques is of utmost clinical interest in therapeutic planning. CT produces high-quality images of the coronary arteries, in addition to defining their location and the extent of the atherosclerotic involvement. Proper knowledge of the equipment, adequate preparation of the patient, and accurate evaluation of the images are essential to obtaining a consistent clinical diagnosis in every case. This new edition is enriched with dedicated chapters on intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), catheter angiography, and nuclear imaging, with limited discussions of theoretical techniques such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Brief chapters will also be included that discuss percutaneous coronary artery procedures and coronary artery bypass surgery. Indications of when to use CCTA will be discussed, with comparison of these imaging techniques to each other. This volume provides general practitioners and cardiologists with a basic understanding of the imaging techniques. For radiologists with no direct experience in cardiac imaging, the book serves as an important source of information on coronary pathophysiology and anatomy.
Contents
Clinical anatomy of the coronary circulation -- Basic techniques in the acquisition of cardiac images with CT -- CT examination of the coronary arteries -- Image reconstruction -- Coronary pathophysiology -- Clinical classification of coronary artery disease : who should be treated? -- Intravascular ultrasound : from gray-scale to virtual histology -- Identification and characterization of the atherosclerotic plaque using coronary CT angiography -- Coronary CT angiography : evaluation of stenosis and occlusion -- Current strategies in cardiac surgery -- Coronary CT angiography : evaluation of coronary artery bypass grafts -- Coronary stents -- CT angiography of coronary stents -- X-ray exposure in coronary CT angiography -- Optical coherence tomography in the cathlab -- Triple rule out : the use of cardiac CT in the emergency room -- Contraindications to coronary CT angiography -- Prognostic value of coronary CT -- Clinical cases.

Abstract
This book reviews the imaging features associated with selected classes of pharmaceuticals and drugs on brain, head and neck, and spine and explains the implications of the imaging findings for the neuroradiologist and the clinician. Some agents produce characteristic abnormalities with distinctive imaging features, while others have a spectrum of manifestations on imaging. Still further agents produce rather nonspecific changes on imaging, requiring a differential diagnosis. In this book, informative cases are depicted by rich images, with concise accompanying explanatory text that reviews the class of agent and the mechanism of action and discusses image interpretation and its significance.

Yulia Levakhina gives an introduction to the major challenges of image reconstruction in Digital Tomosynthesis (DT), particularly to the connection of the reconstruction problem with the incompleteness of the DT dataset. The author discusses the factors which cause the formation of limited angle artifacts and proposes how to account for them in order to improve image quality and axial resolution of modern DT. The addressed methods include a weighted non-linear backprojection scheme for algebrai…

Abstract
Yulia Levakhina gives an introduction to the major challenges of image reconstruction in Digital Tomosynthesis (DT), particularly to the connection of the reconstruction problem with the incompleteness of the DT dataset. The author discusses the factors which cause the formation of limited angle artifacts and proposes how to account for them in order to improve image quality and axial resolution of modern DT. The addressed methods include a weighted non-linear backprojection scheme for algebraic reconstruction and a novel dual-axis acquisition geometry. All discussed algorithms and methods are supplemented by detailed illustrations, hints for practical implementation, pseudo-code, simulation results and real patient case examples.
Contents
Introduction -- Where we are today: tomosynthesis research and development -- Forward and backprojection model (FP/BP) -- Iterative image reconstruction for tomosynthesis -- Backprojected space in image reconstruction -- Dual-axis tilt acquisition geometry -- Conclusions and suggestions for further work -- Appendix: MATLAB®.

Il s'agit d'un ordinateur et d'un appareil à rayons X très complexe qui produit une série d'images. Ce test est relativement simple, sécuritaire et sans douleur. Un tomodensitomètre produit des images de meilleure qualité des os et des organes en tissus mous que les rayons X ordinaires. Une substance de contraste peut être utilisée pour voir les organes plus clairement. La brochure décrit comment se préparer pour le test et ce qui se produit durant le test.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0067, “CT scanner”. A CT scanner is a highly sophisticated computer and X-ray machine that work together to make a series of images. This test is relatively simple, safe, and painless. A CT scanner gives much better images of bone and soft tissue organs than ordinary X-rays. Topics include: why a CT scan is done, where it is done, who will do the scan, how long it will take, how you get ready for the test, what happens during the test, when the contrast agent (X-ray dye) is used and how it is given, and what to expect after the scan.
