Meyers' Dynamic Radiology of the Abdomen: Normal and Pathologic Anatomy / Edition 6 available in Hardcover
The previous five editions of Dynamic Radiology of the Abdomen are classic, must-read books for the diagnostic radiologist. A gold standard in the field, the text demonstrates how diseases spread in the abdomen and pelvis by relating basic anatomy to clinical imaging and medicine.
The Sixth Edition continues the tradition of this great book by applying anatomic knowledge to state-of-the-art imaging. Chapters have been reorganized to help the reader better interpret imaging studies by clearly demonstrating what to expect and where to look for disease spread from each individual organ. Up-to-date chapters written by top experts explore the dynamic concept, explain its embryologic and anatomic basis, and classify the mechanisms of disease progression. The latest imaging modalities, including CT, MRI, ultrasound, and PET, are incorporated throughout to illustrate these fundamental concepts.
Featured in this Edition:
*Emphasis on the anatomic mechanisms of disease spread.
*Images displayed in various formats, including 3-D and multiplanar.
*State-of-the-art graphic illustrations that explain anatomic changes and make anatomic findings easy to understand.
