Overview

Devoted specifically to the complex region of the head and neck, this clinically oriented book brings you up-to-date on new imaging protocols and patient strategies. You'll find complete coverage of all imaging modalities, including their advantages and disadvantages in obtaining a complete work-up of the patient. More than 100 cases stress real-life clinical problems, supported by 700 high-quality radiographs and illustrations.

Highlights:

  • Each case presents a complete patient work-up and is heavily illustrated for maximum comprehension
  • Manageable size allows you to absorb key concepts without wading through extraneous material
  • Conveniently organized by anatomic region
  • Complete with tips, pearls, and controversial issues that bring you to the forefront of the specialty

For all practitioners taking the radiology boards and the CAQ exam in neuroradiology, this book is essential; it is also ideal for residents rotating through the subspecialty.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Each volume in Thieme's new Teaching Atlas series features a wide range of challenging cases in radiology, and is ideal for both self-assessment and review. All cases stress the "real-life" presentation of a specific clinical problem, beginning with high-quality radiographs and followed by a patient history, radiographic findings, differential diagnosis, discussion, and suggestions for further reading. Higlighted "Pearls," "Pitfalls," and "Controversial Issues" round out the presentation of each case and provide the reader with hundreds of useful hints and recommendations. A must for residents rotating in subspecialties or studying for board examinations, the Teaching Atlas series is also a useful review for experienced practitioners. Neuroradiology is a major part of general radiology with constant advances in new imaging procedures and protocols. This case-approach text is a practical resource for optimal radiologic diagnosis of all head and neck disorders. The clinical cases are organized by anatomical region. All imaging modalities will be discussed and each case will present a complete work-up of the patient.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'A practical teaching tool. . .well-chosen clinical cases, presentation is clear and pedagogical. . .excellent. . .Initially intended for radiologists and other physicians dealing with head and neck pathology in training, it can also be of interest to qualified clinical radiologists.' —Surgical and Radiologic AnatomyIllustrations are excellent...packed with practical information..can serve very well as an introductory survey of the broad area of head and neck imaging. I recommend this book to residents and general radiologists as an introduction to typical head and neck imaging cases, —RadiologyWell-illustrated work containing quality images of both the 'gee-whiz' cases as well as the more common types of head and neck clinical problems..excellent quality..richly illustrated..worthwhile review for anyone preparing for the boards..excellent reference.—Current Surgery95 clinical cases, classified according to anatomical location...pathological descriptions are exhaustive and stimulating for teaching purposes. Cases are presented with a quiz-like format...an interesting, well-produced textbook, useful for reference purposes but above all as a working manual in the day-to-day practice of neuroradiology. —NeuroradiologyAn excellent book for health care professionals...a representation of those problems that many times are not properly diagnosed...highly recommended... —E-Stream online reviewsWell-written...the way the cases are presented stimulates problem-solving thinking and enhances the assimilation of information...an interesting learning tool...recommended to radiology trainees and those in clinical practice. —European Radiology
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jody Tanabe, MD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This teaching atlas of head and neck imaging consists primarily of cross-sectional images of approximately 100 cases. Cases are presented as unknowns with a description of radiologic findings, differential diagnosis, and discussion. According to the editors, the shift in healthcare from specialist to primary care physician and the market pressures to limit the work-up of patients, places greater responsibility on the radiologist for he/she "may be the only head and neck specialist that the patient sees."
Purpose: While there are several texts on head and neck imaging, this book is different in that image quality, generally high, is combined with easy "look-up" of information about specific diseases.
Audience: Directed towards "healthcare professionals in training" and "those in clinical practice interested in the H & N," this book is an excellent teaching atlas for those audiences. The editors are authorities on imaging in the head and neck.
Features: Organized by anatomical sites, the cases represent relatively common lesions that one is likely to encounter in a general clinical practice. The strength of the book is succinctness — yet the editors can still provide relevant clinical discussion and a reasonable list of differential diagnoses. Salient imaging and clinical features are highlighted along with practical "pearls/pitfalls" (e.g., destructive laryngeal masses centered in cartilage are usually metastases). This is not a new approach, but it is an effective one. Weaknesses are the occasional self-evident statements (e.g., "care should be taken not to fail to evaluate the full extent of tumor"). The text is not directly referenced; instead, general suggested readings are listed. Editors do not discuss innovative or current techniques such as the role of PET scan or MR spectroscopy to evaluate lympadenopathy.
Assessment: This book is a practical head and neck imaging atlas for a resident/fellow, or for the general radiologist in community practice. Compared to other texts in this area, it is easier to extract relevant — albeit somewhat superficial — information.
