Overview

As the ideal introductory textbook for medical students, junior doctors, trainee radiologists, and practising clinicians, this new edition of Diagnostic Imaging explains the principles of interpretation of all forms of imaging, offering a balanced account of all the modalities available, explaining each technique and when to use it.

Organised by body system and covering all anatomical regions, Armstrong, Wastie and Rockall:

  • explain how to interpret images
  • provide guidelines for interpreting images
  • discuss common diseases and the signs that can be seen using each imaging modality
  • illustrate clinical problems with normal and abnormal images
  • assist diagnosis by covering normal images as well as those for specific disorders
  • show all imaging modalities used in a clinical context

The authors cover use of plain film, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging and interventional radiology, with high quality illustrations and images.

What’s new for the 6th edition?

  • Additional new sections and expanded sections, following reviewer feedback
  • Updated throughout to ensure recommendations and illustrations reflect modern ultrasound CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine (including PET) practice
  • Key points and bullet points to aid learning

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

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This edition explains the principles of interpretation of all forms of imaging, explaining each technique and when to use it." (Times Higher Education Supplement, May 2008)
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.
