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.
