Now more streamlined and focused than ever before, the 6th edition of CT and MRI of the Whole Body is a definitive reference that provides you with an enhanced understanding of advances in CT and MR imaging, delivered by a new team of international associate editors. Perfect for radiologists who need a comprehensive reference while working on difficult cases, it presents a complete yet concise overview of imaging applications, findings, and interpretation in every anatomic area. The new edition of this classic reference ― released in its 40th year in print ― is a must-have resource, now brought fully up to date for today’s radiology practice.

Includes both MR and CT imaging applications, allowing you to view correlated images for all areas of the body.
Coverage of interventional procedures helps you apply image-guided techniques.Includes clinical manifestations of each disease with cancer staging integrated throughout.Expert Consult eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, images, and references from the book on a variety of devices.Over 5,200 high quality CT, MR, and hybrid technology images in one definitive reference.
For the radiologist who needs information on the latest cutting-edge techniques in rapidly changing imaging technologies, such as CT, MRI, and PET/CT, and for the resident who needs a comprehensive resource that gives a broad overview of CT and MRI capabilities.Brand-new team of new international associate editors provides a unique global perspective on the use of CT and MRI across the world.Completely revised in a new, more succinct presentation without redundancies for faster access to critical content.Vastly expanded section on new MRI and CT technology keeps you current with continuously evolving innovations.

This  sixth  edition  of CT  and  MRI  of  the  Whole  Body represents  a monumental accomplishment for Elsevier and our many contributing authors,  editors,  and  section  editors  who  have  contributed  past  and 
present. The authors of the current chapters are due many, many kudos because  of  the  changes  that  have  occurred  in  healthcare  with  the emphasis on “productivity” and RVUs. Institutions have reduced physician support in the form of secretaries, assistants, etc., which makes it very difficult for academic physicians to contribute to projects such as this book. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Being senior editor of this book has been a remarkable honor for me because it enabled me to collaborate with many radiologists and physicists. Everyone who has been involved for the past 40 years can take great pride in this book because it has formed the foundation for educating  thousands  of  fellow  radiologists  in  the  United  States  and around the world. Over the years, radiologists from all over the world have  expressed  their  gratitude  for  having  this  book  available  as  a reference.
As I reflect back, I become nostalgic just thinking about how exciting radiology has been for the past 40 years. So many innovations and advances have been made. Of the contributions I have made, I am the most proud of developing CT interventions such as biopsies, abscess drainages, nerve blocks, the Topogram/Scoutview, and radiation dose reduction. It is very flattering that the Smithsonian Institution asked for and accepted for curation several personal artifacts related to these innovations.
Over the years I have met many pioneers in the field of imaging, but my two favorites were Sven Seldinger, MD (Fig. 1), and Paul Lauterbur, PhD (Fig. 2), as pictured below. Dr. Seldinger was a very dynamic person  who  developed  the  Seldinger  Technique  for  angiography. 
Unfortunately, he didn’t receive the recognition he deserved until late in his career. Few know that he did not receive an academic appointment until we awarded him with one at Case Western Reserve University. Paul Lauterbur was the genius who received the Nobel Prize for MRI. Strangely enough, he and I lived in the same small town, Troy, Ohio, for a number of years. His sense of humor as well as his science 
was of Nobel quality.
I have taken the editor’s prerogative of referencing and publishing my  own  innovations  in  this  book.  My  last  innovation,  which  I  am confident  will  improve  the  diagnosis  and  treatment  of  cancer,  is  the ALPHA  concept,  which  is  discussed  in  Chapter  70.  The  concept  has been  published  in  the  journals Surgery and  the  American  Journal  of Roentgenology(AJR). We have just finished the experimental proof of ALPHA, which includes standard laboratory tests, but also the latest 
RNA sequencing tests. We will be submitting it for publication soon. 

This concept explains how aerobic metabolism has been overemphasized and that glycolysis is more important for the development and treatment of cancer.
I hope and believe that we will be able to diagnose and cure many more cancers with this knowledge. Readers are encouraged to search the literature for future publications by my protégés who are continuing this work. There are numerous young physicians working on this concept who have accomplished much to date. I would like to acknowledge a number of young investigators, Hooman Yarmohammadi, MD; Luke  Wilkins,  MD;  Steven  Dreyer,  MD;  Dan  Patel,  MD;  Nicholas Fulton, and Ji Buethe, for their hard work and commitment to continue work on this ALPHA concept
