Overview

This new edition concisely describes and illustrates the pathologic processes that radiographers are most likely to encounter. Information is organized by body system versus disease classification, making this a practical and easy-to-use reference. Each chapter starts with an explanation of anatomy and physiology, then moves on to imaging considerations. When imaging modalities other than plain-film radiography are commonly used to diagnose a particular disease, images from those modalities are included along with discussions of why the particular modalities are used. Each disease is categorized by its type with a description of its appearance or signs and treatment.

Learning objectives focus the reader on the essential material. Includes CT, MRI, and ultrasound images where appropriate to demonstrate pathologies more likely to be diagnosed using modalities other than plain film radiography. Excellent reproduction of radiographs aids in identifying pathologies. Concise discussion of the pathologic processes radiographers are most likely to encounter. Presents just the right amount of information on etiology, appearance, prognosis, and treatment to be appropriate for radiographers.
