Overview

In the emergency department, consistent and accurate interpretation of radiographs is vital for the care of the acutely ill or injured patient. Written by emergency physicians for emergency physicians, this new title conveys the information required to interpret routine radiographic studies with the signposts for quick and accurate diagnosis. The book organizes the crucial and most elemental information, combining clear instructional figures and tables with clinically relevant text. High quality radiographs are accompanied by line drawings which more clearly define the anatomy as seen in the image.

This superbly illustrated text shows the signposts for quick and accurate radiologic diagnosis of all emergency conditions. Each set of images - more than 600 in total - is accompanied by a concise clinical description of the emergency condition along with clinical pearls for interpreting radiologic signs across all modalities. Line drawing schematics are supplied to clarify anatomic structure and highlight clinical points.

    The diagnostic imaging resource for emergency medicine

    ¿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?
