Diagnostic Imaging

Overview

Patients now undergo a range of complex and sophisticated imaging techniques: ultrasound, CT, MRI and radioisotopes, in addition to conventional radiography, all of which are used to diagnose disease. Diagnostic Imaging is an introductory textbook that provides a balanced account of all these imaging modalities. The primary aim is to help medical students, junior doctors, and practising clinicians understand the principles of interpretation of all forms of imaging.

Overview

Patients now undergo a range of complex and sophisticated imaging techniques: ultrasound, CT, MRI and radioisotopes, in addition to conventional radiography, all of which are used to diagnose disease. Diagnostic Imaging is an introductory textbook that provides a balanced account of all these imaging modalities. The primary aim is to help medical students, junior doctors, and practising clinicians understand the principles of interpretation of all forms of imaging. The beautifully written text is organized by body systems. The authors discuss the imaging techniques available, the indications for their use, and the normal appearances. They then discuss the imaging signs in common diseases. In this new edition there is coverage of plain film, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging and interventional radiology. The book is extensively illustrated throughout with high-quality images.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Russell A. Blinder
This is a concise overview of the various modalities and disciplines that encompass diagnostic radiology. This fourth edition replaces the third edition published in 1992. The purpose is ""to meet the needs of medical students by explaining the techniques of diagnostic imaging and indications for their use."" The objectives are laudable, and within the limitations of this brief textbook, are accomplished. The authors state that this book is designed for use by medical students and young doctors in training. It is small, concise, and exceptionally brief in its coverage in most areas. It is most suited to medical students in the first and second years in training, should they require a brief introduction to the vast and complex field of radiology. This book gives a brief introduction into the physics and instrumentation of image production for the various modalities, followed by an organ system format that covers the indications for the uses of the different modalities with examples of normal anatomy and common pathology. It has a large number of images of very good quality. A brief appendix covers the cross sectional anatomy of the abdomen using diagrams and CT images. This textbook is relatively short, and approximately 50% of space available is given to images. It has as a major strength as well as a weakness its brevity. Compared to Novelline's Squire's Fundamentals of Radiology, 5th Edition, (Harvard University Press, 1997), it offers much less coverage of most topics. For a more in-depth understanding of normal anatomy, pathology, or image formation, the Squire text is superior. It is unlikely that this book will serve as a useful reference formost physicians once they begin their post graduate medical education due to its simplicity, but in the appropriate settings where a brief introduction to radiology is desirable it will be an excellent resource.

An introductory text for medical students that covers conventional radiology, ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Much of the book is devoted to understanding the principles of interpretation, both of plain films and the images obtained with other imaging modalities. Explanations of techniques used in diagnostic imaging and indications for their use are also covered. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
