This book describes the different principles and equipment used in medical imaging. The importance of medical imaging for diagnostics is rapidly increasing. A good working knowledge of all the different possible physical principles involved in medical imaging is now imperative. This book covers many of these principles including matter photon interactions, the principles of detectors, detectors and information processing for radiology, X-ray tomography, positron tomography, single photon tomography and optical tomography.

Designed for easy use at the PACS station of viewbox, here is your right-hand tool and pictorial guide for locating, identifying, and accurately diagnosing lesions of the extracranial head and neck. This beautifully produced atlas employs the spaces concept of analysis, which helps radiologists directly visualize complex head and neck anatomy and pathology.
With hundreds of high quality illustrations, this book makes the identification and localization of complex neck masses relatively simple. This book provides CT and MR examples for more than 200 different diseases of the suprahyoid and infrahyoid neck, as well as clear and concise information on the epidemiology, clinical findings, pathology, and treatment guidelines for each disease.
Each space within the head and neck has its own separate section, with examples of the common pathology that arises in this area. A standard format consisting of Epidemiology, Clinical Presentation, Pathology, Treatment, and Imaging Findings, allows quick and efficient access to well-structured subjects. This uniform organization streamlines research for radiologists at any level of training.
Although well over 200 pathologies are included within this remarkable text, Atlas of Head and Neck Imaging focuses primarily on the suprahyoid and infrahyoid neck, providing exceptionally detailed information on the most challenging aspects of this field.
Radiologists and radiation oncologists will find this visual text ideal as a quick anatomic reference and diagnostic tool. Radiology residents preparing for board exams and neuroradiology fellows and staff studying for the CAQ exam will also benefit from the wealth of information.
This book presents a vast collection of radiologic images of cases seen in a very busy emergency room. It encompasses common and very unusual pathology and every imaging modality. The book is divided into four parts on pathology of the vascular system, chest, abdomen and pelvis and reproductive organs. Images obtained with the modalities that best depict the abnormality in question are presented, with marking of the salient pathology and explanation of the abnormal imaging features in concise captions. Whenever possible, differential diagnosis is covered using further images and guidance is also provided on selection of additional modalities to confirm the diagnosis. The book will help residents to analyze different diseases and relate pathophysiology to imaging and assist students in appreciating what is abnormal. It will be a useful guide for the busy practicing radiologist and aid clinicians in understanding the complexity of these cases and delivering better focused treatment.p>

Cross-sectional imaging plays an ever-increasing role in the management of the acutely ill patient. There is 24/7 demand for radiologists at all levels of training to interpret complex scans, and alongside this an increased expectation that the requesting physician should be able to recognise important cross-sectional anatomy and pathology in order to expedite patient management. Emergency Cross-Sectional Radiology addresses both these expectations. Part I demystifies cross-sectional imaging techniques. Part II describes a wide range of emergency conditions in an easy-to-read bullet point format. High quality images reinforce the findings, making this an invaluable rapid reference in everyday clinical practice. Emergency Cross-Sectional Radiology is a practical aide-memoire for emergency medicine physicians, surgeons, acute care physicians and radiologists in everyday reporting or emergency on-call environments.
This fully revised edition of Fundamentals of Diagnostic Radiologyconveys the essential knowledge needed to understand the clinical application of imaging technologies. An ideal tool for all radiology residents and students, it covers all subspecialty areas and current imaging modalities as utilized in neuroradiology, chest, breast, abdominal, musculoskeletal imaging, ultrasound, pediatric imaging, interventional techniques and nuclear radiology. New and expanded topics in this edition include use of diffustion-weighted MR, new contrast agents, breast MR, and current guidelines for biopsy and intervention. Many new images, expanded content, and full-color throughout make the fourth edition of this classic text a comprehensive review that is ideal as a first reader for beginning residents, a reference during rotations, and a vital resource when preparing for the American Board of Radiology examinations.
More than just a book, the fourth edition is a complete print and online package. Readers will also have access to fully searchable content from the book, a downloadable image bank containing all images from the text, and study guides for each chapter that outline the key points for every image and table in an accessible format—ideal for study and review.
