Overview

Diagnostic Imaging will help medical students, junior doctors, residents and trainee radiologists understand the principles behind interpreting all forms of imaging. Providing a balanced account of all the imaging modalities available – including plain film, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging and interventional radiology – it explains the techniques used and the indications for their use.

Organised by body system, it covers all anatomical regions. In each region the authors discuss the most suitable imaging technique and provide guidelines for interpretation, illustrating clinical problems with normal and abnormal images.

Diagnostic Imaging is extensively illustrated throughout, featuring high quality full-colour images and more than 600 photographs. The images are downloadable in PowerPoint format from the brand new companion website at www.wileydiagnosticimaging.com, which also has over 100 interactive MCQs, to aid learning and teaching.

When you purchase the book you also receive access to the Wiley E-Text: Powered by VitalSource. This is an interactive digital version of the book, featuring downloadable text and images, highlighting and note-taking facilities, bookmarking, cross-referencing, in-text searching, and linking to references and abbreviations. Diagnostic Imaging is also available on CourseSmart, offering extra functionality as well as an immediate way to access the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Overall, this is a useful introduction to radiology for medical students and interns. It is helpful to have one reference for a number of modalities for various types of organ imaging and for many different medical conditions, although it does underemphasize the value of radionuclide techniques.” (Doody’s, 16 August 2013)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia)
Description: This book explains the techniques used in medical imaging and their indications, and presents information to help understand the principles of interpretation of these studies. The book is organized by organ systems, and covers all anatomic regions.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide guidance on the use of various imaging modalities in evaluating a broad range of medical conditions, the indications for these studies, and principles of interpretation. These are worthy objectives, although for a very broad audience, and are reasonably well met.
Audience: The intended audience includes medical students, interns ("junior doctors"), and trainees in radiology, but it is most suitable for medical students and interns.
Features: The book covers the various imaging modalities by organ system, with chapters on the chest, (including cardiac and breast imaging), abdomen, skeletal system, brain, orbits and head and neck, and vascular and interventional radiology. The book does a good job of presenting and discussing plain film radiology in various aspects. The illustrations and images are excellent. The first chapter describing the various imaging modalities and how they work is quite good, but the risks of radiation are significantly overexaggerated (there is no evidence to support genetic risk from environmental and man-made radioactivity). The use of radionuclide imaging is underrepresented and undervalued in this book. The section on parathyroid imaging is actually incorrect (I-123 and Tc-99m pertechnetate image the thyroid gland, not the parathyroid glands). There is additional material online, with multiple choice questions for readers to evaluate their knowledge.
Assessment: Overall, this is a useful introduction to radiology for medical students and interns. It is helpful to have one reference for a number of modalities for various types of organ imaging and for many different medical conditions, although it does underemphasize the value of radionuclide techniques. However, the book has updated information in many areas, and the online information with multiple-choice questions should prove useful.
