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.
