This essential handbook provides indispensable guidance for all those seeking or reporting investigations in radiology which arises in an emergency setting. It summarises the major problems faced on-call and provides advice on the most suitable radiological tests to request as well as suggesting an appropriate timescale for imaging. From a radiologist's perspective, it lists in concise format the protocol for each test and outlines the expected findings.

Emergency radiology is a crucial component of emergency care as a whole. It is rare for a patient to undergo emergency surgery or treatment without prior imaging. Radiology is the new gate-keeper in clinical practice with an emergency CT scan of the head being performed in most UK hospitals every day. Radiology can confirm a diagnosis, sending a patient down a pathway of established therapy; confirm normality, leading to patient discharge; detect an unsuspected abnormality, suggesting an alternative action altogether; or be non-contributory. This concise, portable handbook supports emergency-setting radiology and helps the reader in this vital field.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Julie Sossaman, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book briefly reviews the clinical and imaging features of major diseases with which patients present in the emergency setting.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a concise reference that provides guidance on which imaging to perform, how to do it, and how to interpret the results.
Audience: Written primarily for radiologists and residents, the book also can be useful for clinicians attempting to determine which exam should be ordered. This will be a useful resource for residents in training, particularly in the on-call setting.
Features: The book reviews all major disease processes encountered in the emergency setting, grouped by organ systems. It also includes a brief section on emergent intervention and care of the patient, including the unstable patient, and the administration of sedation. The information is provided primarily in lists that are easy to read and allows for quick review of key points of each disease process.
Assessment: This will be helpful for radiologists on call or radiology residents as a quick reference tool for management and interpretation of studies in the emergency setting.
