Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Debra S. Dyer, MD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book provides an overview of topics in emergency imaging with a focus on the most common and challenging clinical problems.
Purpose: The book is intended to serve as a reference guide on common problems in emergency radiology. The authors' goals are to provide practical imaging solutions and to discuss optimal imaging techniques and pitfalls.
Audience: A concise and easy-to-use reference of this type is a valuable resource to radiology residents and practicing radiologists, particularly in the on-call setting.
Features: The authors bring their extensive experience to the pages of this beautifully illustrated and well-organized book. The focus in several chapters is on frequently encountered patient symptoms such as stroke, chest pain, trauma, and various types of abdominal pain. The layout in each chapter is consistent with sections on clinical overview, imaging strategy and techniques, findings, sensitivity and specificity data, differential diagnoses, and pitfalls. The book is practical and easy-to-read. The only shortcoming is that while intended to be concise, the discussions of imaging pitfalls are sometimes incomplete and too brief.
Assessment: This well written reference book offers an overview of the most common and challenging problems in emergency radiology. It is a valuable resource to residents and practicing radiologists. It is more concise and easier to use than other books of its kind.

A quick guide for radiologists to the commonly encountered clinical problems encountered in emergency wards, organized by symptom rather than by site or system. Discusses such conditions as head trauma, acute chest pain of non-cardiac origin, ruling out diverticulitis in lower left quadrant pain, and ruling out abscess in fever and abdominal pain. The profuse high quality images include 13 color plates. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
