By Wilfred C. G. Peh

The perform of diagnostic radiology has turn into more and more complicated, with using various imaging modalities and department into many subspecialty parts. it's turning into ever more challenging for subspecialist radiologists, normal radiologists, and citizens to take care of with the advances which are taking place 12 months on yr, and this is often relatively actual for much less well-known subject matters. Failure to understand imaging pitfalls frequently results in diagnostic blunders and misinterpretation, and capability medicolegal difficulties. This textbook, written through specialists from respected facilities the world over, systematically and comprehensively highlights the pitfalls which can take place in diagnostic radiology. either pitfalls particular to diversified modalities and strategies and people particular to specific organ platforms are defined with assistance from a variety of top quality illustrations. attractiveness of those pitfalls is essential in assisting the working towards radiologist to accomplish a extra exact diagnosis.

This process is repeated until the deviation between measured and calculated projections is smaller than a predefined limit. • Regularization: Nonlinear image-processing algorithms are used to stabilize the resolution every time the original image is updated. The regularization procedure enables image noise to be lowered without compromising detail resolution, which in turn enables reduction of radiation exposure (Fig. 14). Indeed, it has been reported that iterative reconstruction can yield diagnostic-quality images at 20–66 % lower volume CT dose index (CTDIvol) values than those obtained with Filtered back projection techniques (Sagara et al.

If the pure keyhole method is used, the full k-space is acquired once at the beginning of a specific case, whereas other spatiotemporal techniques such as TWIST also sample higher spatial frequencies during the dynamic part of the scan. For the latter, the periphery k-space is reconstructed from the undersampled subsets after the dynamic scan. Which artifacts are inherent in this concept? First of all, keyhole imaging is particularly sensitive to motion, since data acquired at different time points during the dynamic scan are combined in k-space.
