Overview

Mettler (radiology, University of New Mexico) explains the basic principles and clinical applications of plain film, CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine in this primer for medical students and residents. Assuming no prior knowledge of radiology, the text is organized by body parts and systems, and concludes with a chapter on nonskeletal pediatric imaging. Major changes to this second edition are an increased emphasis on CT scanning and PET imaging. Information has been added on the workup of common problems such as headache, hypertension, and low back pain. About 550 high-quality b&w images of normal and pathological findings are included.
