Thoracic Imaging: Illustrated Clinical Cases, Second Edition

 Radiology  Comments Off on Thoracic Imaging: Illustrated Clinical Cases, Second Edition
Jun 172020

The chest radiograph is a ubiquitous, first-line investigation and accurate interpretation is often difficult. Radiographic findings may lead to the use of more sophisticated imaging techniques, such as multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and positive emission tomography.

Containing 100 challenging clinical cases and illustrated with superb, high quality images, Thoracic Imaging, Second Edition explores a wide range of lung conditions. Coverage ranges from basic radiographic cases such as tuberculosis, pulmonary and mediastinal masses to the more challenging diseases, including cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, sarcoidosis and interstitial lung disease.

It remains an invaluable text for radiologists and imaging professionals in practice and in training, from hospital-based doctors preparing for higher examinations to established physicians in their continuing professional development.

However radiology has expanded rapidly in recent years and this Seventh Edition is the biggest revision this book has had in its long history with major changes incorporated into nearly every section.

  • Comprehensive lists of differential diagnoses to aid effective diagnoses
  • Closely aligned to the needs of current FRCR curriculum
  • Brief, to the point text and clear page format allows for rapid access to key information
  • Part 2 of the book has been restructured to focus on multisystem disorders which cannot be fully covered in the individual chapters in Part 1.
  • A new chapter on Nuclear Medicine has been added to reflect its importance in modern medical imaging.
  • The chapter on head and neck conditions has been significantly expanded.
  • Important discriminating features have been added to nearly every differential to aid the reader in developing a strategy for reaching a diagnosis.
  • The top differentials in each list which are considered important for radiology trainees to learn for exams are underlined.

Breast Imaging Essentials: Case Based Review

 Radiology  Comments Off on Breast Imaging Essentials: Case Based Review
May 282020

This book covers all the essential aspects of breast imaging necessary for the preparation of MMed, MD, FRCR and FRANZCR exams. The main focus is on mammogram and breast ultrasound along with basics of breast MRI and breast interventions. With the increasing popularity of these qualifying exams among radiology residents in Asia, Great Britain as well as Australia and dearth of relevant resources on the topic, this book will serve as a valuable resource for the candidates. The book is also aligned with preparations required for the FRCPC (Canada) and the American Board of Radiology.
The book is divided into two sections – first section includes chapters on basics of breast imaging along with a chapter on emerging technologies while the second section includes 50 exam-relevant cases covering imaging findings utilizing appropriate BI-RADS lexicon, possible differentials, next recommended investigation and appropriate management in accordance with American College of Radiology lexicon, BI-RADS system and MRI correlation, whenever available. Readers also get familiar with the indications for breast MRI. The book is written by experts in breast imaging with relevant teaching experience.
Written by an experts with strong teaching experience, this book is not only suitable for exams but is also useful for practicing breast and non-breast radiologists as well as breast care clinicians, keen to learn fundamentals of breast imaging.

This book serves as a casebook for clinical nuclear medicine neuroimaging. Clinical interpretation of nuclear medicine neuroimaging studies is often challenging, mainly due to the complexity of neuroanatomy and a lack of supportive reference books. This is an unmet need in many teaching hospitals. Utilizing a hands-on, case-based approach, this textbook guides readers through clinical nuclear medicine neuroimaging of major neurological diseases and conditions, including dementia, epilepsy, and brain death. Included here are basic guidelines and techniques for nuclear medicine neuroimaging practices, set alongside case examples that include standardized imaging display and detailed interpretation. Each chapter begins with examples of normal brain imaging as a reference point for the remainder of the chapter, which then presents detailed case examples of these diseases through various imaging techniques. Each of the cases highlights clinical and imaging key findings and precise impressions. This is an ideal guide for residents, fellows, and even practicing nuclear medicine physicians as a reference and teaching tool for neuroimaging in clinical nuclear medicine. It will be of significant value to residents, trainees, and young physicians in preparation for their in-service tests and board examinations.
