Overview

Offering a foundation in the basic principles of pathology, this book focuses on the radiographic appearances of diseases and injuries that are most likely to be diagnosed with medical imaging. It offers everything you need to know about pathology imaging, including disease processes, radiographic appearance, and treatment. Updated and revised, this edition provides hundreds of illustrations and current information to help you meet the challenge of today's radiography.

Inside you'll find: Hundreds of high-quality illustrations of the radiographic appearance of various disease processes. A body systems approach that makes information easy to find and understand. New imaging modalities, including SPECT, PET, CT, MR, ultrasound, and fusion. New pathologies, including hepatitis variations, SARS, anthrax, and Marfan's syndrome. Radiographer Notes in every chapter that provide helpful suggestions for producing optimal radiographs for each organ system and discuss how to handle the needs of different patients. Thorough coverage of alternative imaging modalities that may be needed to ensure proper diagnosis. Treatment sections with useful background on various pathologies. An expanded discussion of how CT and MR scans are used in diagnosis. Summary tables listing diseases, their locations, radiographic appearance, and treatment. An extensive glossary and a list of major prefixes, roots, and suffixes with definitions and examples.

Susan Lura Sanson
This book provides an introduction to the basicprinciples of pathology and basic radiographic pathology. The firstedition was published in 1990. The purpose is to introduce studentradiographers to the basic principles of pathology and the radiographicappearance of specific disease processes. It also provides a textbookfor the required course for student radiographers. The authors haveprovided the radiologic technology academic community with a greatlyneeded resource. This book is intended for student radiographers;however, experienced radiographers could enhance their understanding ofdisease processes too. The authors are recognized authorities withinthe radiologic technology community. Overall, the radiographs aregood; however, in the new edition, some appear slightly darker. Theinclusion of outdated exams (i.e., bronchograms) and really unusualpathology might not be needed in a basic textbook. The layout of thebook is excellent, covering the pathology by going through eachanatomical system. The addition of answers to the chapter questions wasappreciated by my students. This is the only textbook is availablefor a radiographic pathology course, designed for studentradiographers. The authors have done an excellent job in providing acomprehensive overview of a very complex subject. The use of thistextbook in a radiographic pathology course will greatly enhance thestudents' understanding.
