¿Emergency Radiology¿ was designed both for basic instruction and as a comprehensive reference for the ED. For ease of use, each chapter has similar section divisions: when to order radiographs; basic anatomy; standard and supplementary radiographic views (including drawings showing radiographic anatomy); a step-by-step approach to reading the radiographs; common abnormalities (illustrated and described); errors in interpretation (subtle findings that can be missed); and anatomical variants. The first half of the book covers each skeletal region as well as the cervical spine, thoracolumbar spine and face. Adult and pediatric injuries in addition to selected nontraumatic disorders are illustrated. In the Chest and Abdomen chapters, plain radiography, computed tomography (CT), and ultrasonography are fully discussed. Head CT is thoroughly covered in Emergency Imaging of the Brain. Specific chapters are devoted to pediatrics, trauma management, ED ultrasonography and toxicology. ED uses of MRI are also shown. Please tell us how we can improve this book! Which sections do you find helpful and which could be improved? How can the book be made more useful for you?
