MRI Normal Variants and Pitfalls presents over 1,800 images of normal anatomic variants, artifacts, and other features that mimic pathology on MRI scans. The book will reduce the rate of diagnostic errors by helping radiologists distinguish pathology from MRI appearances that may simulate disease.

Organized by anatomic region, the book covers the gamut of neuroradiology, breast imaging, vascular, cross-sectional, and musculoskeletal radiology. Each chapter shows examples of normal anatomy, variations, common incidental or benign conditions, and imaging features that may mimic other disease processes. Concise figure legends facilitate rapid identification of imaging characteristics. Examples of common MRI artifacts are included, with brief explanations from physicists in language understandable to radiologists.

Chest X-Ray Interpretation (Pocket Tutor) (Paperback)

By (author): Mike Darby, Anthony Edey, Ladli Chandratreya, Nick Maskell

Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with "on the go". Their highly affordable price represents great value for those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment. Topics reflect information needs stemming from today's integrated undergraduate & foundation courses: * Common investigations (ECG, Chest X-Ray, etc) * Clinical skills (procedures, patient examination, etc) * Important and/or complex specialties in which students receive comparatively little dedicated training (psychiatry, renal medicine) Key Points * Highly affordable price and convenient pocket size format - fits in back pocket! * Logical, sequential content: relevant basic science; understanding normal results and the building blocks of abnormal results; then clinical disorders * Clinical disorders illustrated by a full page chest radiograph with brief accompanying text on facing page that clearly identifies the defining features of the X-Ray (in other words, what is it that makes this pneumothorax?)

All the clinical applications of whole-body MRI--together in one essential reference!

"This book, to my knowledge, is the first of its kind and offers a hands-on approach to the evolving field of whole-body MRI, which gives the reader tools to effectively utilize and optimize applicatino of whole-body MRI technology in the patient care setting."--F. Scott Pereles, MD, Salinas Valley Radiologists

Superbly illustrated, and written by leading experts who helped establish MRI as a diagnostic tool, this clinically relevant resource puts whole-body MRI into perspective like no other text. The first section covers the technical requirements of whole-body MRI, along with its principles and associated data processing. Subsequent sections offer a practical look at all aspects of whole-body MRI from a clinical perspective--including its use in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease and in metastasis screening.

Features:

  • The only hands-on approach to the evolving field of whole-body MRI-filled with tools to optimize whole-body MRI technology in the patient care setting
  • Complete coverage of all the latest whole-body MRI technical requirements, principles, and associated data processing
  • Richly illustrated presentation of the clinical areas of cardiovascular investigation and musculoskeletal diseases
  • Overview of oncological whole-body imaging that addresses the comparison of whole-body MRI with bone scintigraphy in the detection of bone metastases, and with FDG-PET as it relates to whole-body staging
  • Detailed review of both the clinical and experimental questions concerning whole-body MRI

First published in 1991, Human Sectional Anatomy set new standards for the quality of cadaver sections and accompanying radiological images. Now in its third edition, this unsurpassed quality remains and is further enhanced by some useful new material.

As with the previous editions, the superb full-colour cadaver sections are compared with CT and MRI images, with accompanying, labelled line diagrams. Many of the radiological images have been replaced with new examples, taken on the most up-to date equipment to ensure excellent visualisation of the anatomy. Completely new page spreads have been added to improve the book's coverage, including images taken using multidetector CT technology, and some beautiful 3D volume rendered CT images. The photographic material is enhanced by useful notes, extended for the third edition, with details of important anatomical and radiological features.

During the past decade significant developments have been achieved in the field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), enabling MRI to enter the clinical arena of chest imaging. Standard protocols can now be implemented on up-to-date scanners, allowing MRI to be used as a first-line imaging modality for various lung diseases, including cystic fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension and even lung cancer. The diagnostic benefits stem from the ability of MRI to visualize changes in lung structure while simultaneously imaging different aspects of lung function, such as perfusion, respiratory motion, ventilation and gas exchange. On this basis, novel quantitative surrogates for lung function can be obtained. This book provides a comprehensive overview of how to use MRI for imaging of lung disease. Special emphasis is placed on benign diseases requiring regular monitoring, given that it is patients with these diseases who derive the greatest benefit from the avoidance of ionizing radiation.

This case-based book presents detailed information on neurovascular anatomy in concise, easily digestible chapters that focus on the importance of understanding anatomy when performing neurointerventional procedures. The case discussions include modern examples of invasive and non-invasive angiographic techniques that are relevant for general radiologists and diagnostic neuroradiologists as well as interventionalists. This book gives readers the detailed knowledge of neurovascular anatomy that allows them to anticipate and avoid potential complications.

Key Features:

  • Cases are enhanced by more than 1,000 high-quality radiographs covering the full range of neurovascular anatomy
  • Content focuses on the practical relevance of the anatomical features encountered while performing everyday neurovascular procedures
  • Anatomy and embryology are explained together, enabling readers to fully comprehend the vascular anatomy and its many variants
  • Pearls and pitfalls are provided at the end of each chapter, highlighting the critical anatomy points presented

All neuroradiologists, interventionalists, general radiologists, and diagnostic neuroradiologists, as well as residents and fellows in these specialties, will read this book cover to cover and frequently consult it for a quick review before performing procedures.
