Overview

A detailed, pattern-based approach to abdominal imaging interpretation

Diagnostic Abdominal Imaging provides a comprehensive review of abdominal diseases based on

pattern recognition. Utilizing more than 2,300 images, the book includes discussions of the x-ray, sonographic, CT, MRI, and nuclear radiology features of abdominal diseases. Since accurate imaging diagnosis of diseases can only be achieved with the appropriate clinical history, the

characteristic clinical presentations of abdominal diseases are discussed in conjunction with the image findings.

Presented in fifteen organ-based chapters that highlight differentiation of disease on the basis of imaging patterns, Diagnostic Abdominal Imaging discusses the full spectrum of malignant and nonmalignant abdominal disorders. Each discussion begins with the most salient histologic, pathologic, and clinical features of the disorder under discussion. This is followed by a systematic review of the imaging features of the disease as seen by all modalities.

Unlike most radiology texts which are organized by pathology, Diagnostic Abdominal Imaging is

organized by imaging appearance—mimicking real-world practice. The book guides you through the process of imaging-based diagnosis and stresses the epidemiological, clinical, and imaging features that allow the most accurate prediction of disease.

Features:

  • More than 2,300 images
  • Clear, concise guidelines for determining a diagnosis
  • Imaging Notes emphasize the critical features of imaging interpretation
  • Designed to simulate the routine daily analysis that leads to a diagnosis

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Yulia Melenevsky, MD (Medical College of Georgia)
Description: Using a pattern-based approach, this book presents a comprehensive review of abdominal imaging.
Purpose: The book reviews the full spectrum of abdominal disorders across imaging modalities, providing an alternative approach that complements the variety of books already available.
Audience: While the author does not define his intended audience, the book will interest radiology residents and general community radiologists, as well as subspecialty radiologists are not in abdominal imaging.
Features: Organized by organ system, this review is well supplemented with tables and summary imaging notes. Basic anatomy and imaging principles are covered, followed by description of specific entities, grouped by imaging presentation, highlighting distinguishing features of each. The book features more than 2,300 excellent quality images.
Assessment: While most books in this field are based on a review of pathological entities, this book offers an alternative approach that readers will find valuable while learning the basics of radiology, studying for the boards, or as a reference in daily practice.
