Radiology for Surgeons in Clinical Practice' is aimed at surgeons both consultants and those in training who are interested in the advancing role played by imaging technology within surgical decision making. The prevalence of imaging technology in both the diagnosis and management of surgical patients has increased dramatically in recent years. The increased availability and combination of different imaging modalities have greatly improved the ability of obtaining rapid and accurate diagnoses. Cross-sectional imaging is now widely available and is routinely used to evaluate patients who potentially require surgery. Similarly, multi-detector CT plays a vital role in the management of acute surgical patients. It is therefore essential that the surgeons have a fundamental knowledge of the imaging findings of the main surgical pathologies. This book is organised in two sections, with the first part describing the principles of imaging, and the different imaging techniques available to the surgeon. The advantages and disadvantages of each technique are also highlighted providing useful information and guidance to the surgeon on the appropriate choice of imaging. The second part of the book is symptom-based rather than organ-based, with the aim of providing a practical hands-on approach to imaging patients with common surgical complaints. Written by leading experts in the field, this book will help the surgeon to better understand the imaging options available to them, and choose the correct modalities using a problem-based approach. Written for: Surgical residents, trainees, medical students, radiologists-in-training, consultant surgeons

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan Skaff Hagen, MD, MSPH, MME (Boulder Valley Surgery)
Description: This compact book on common surgical problems and associated imaging is unique in that it is practical and useful for students, residents, and practicing surgeons. The book consists of clear cases with practical applications.
Purpose: The authors state in the preface, "in this small book, the authors - all radiologists - have attempted to look at the patient from the clinical perspective of symptoms and signs, and then to formulate the relevant imaging which would be appropriate for their management."
Audience: The book targets trainees, but also will be useful for practicing surgeons as technology in radiology continues to rapidly advance. The design of the book allows the novice to gain knowledge in basic principles of imaging and those more clinically advanced to glean pearls from specific imaging. The images are clear and the descriptions are easy to follow. The text is brief and the images large, which makes it easy to read.
Features: The two sections cover principles of imaging and imaging of common clinical problems. First, the authors introduce the various modalities of radiology and describe the advantages and disadvantages of each. The majority of the book focuses on common medical problems such as chest pain, abdominal pain, abdominal sepsis, abdominal masses, upper and lower gastrointestinal bleeding, hematuria, jaundice, and trauma. Each topic is introduced and then images depicting common radiographic findings along with succinct descriptions are provided. The text walks readers through the various findings on the images. The authors also provide tables discussing the most appropriate imaging technique for different types of patients. Other tables emphasize radiographic features associated with the clinical disease. Finally, each section concludes with well selected suggestions for further reading. The clarity and size of the images make this a useful reference that can fit in the pocket of a white coat. However, in order to keep this a compact book, only the most common clinical problems encountered by surgeons are covered.
Assessment: This is an excellent companion for medical students, residents, and practicing surgeons. Different imaging techniques are explained and then augmented with organ-based practical approaches to multiple modalities of imaging. This book fills a unique niche in that it is a good combination of descriptive and tabular styles with an abundance of imaging to assist readers in selecting the most appropriate radiographic work-up for their patients.
