This fully revised edition of Fundamentals of Diagnostic Radiology conveys the essential knowledge needed to understand the clinical application of imaging technologies. An ideal tool for all radiology residents and students, it covers all subspecialty areas and current imaging modalities as utilized in neuroradiology, chest, breast, abdominal, musculoskeletal imaging, ultrasound, pediatric imaging, interventional techniques and nuclear radiology. New and expanded topics in this edition include use of diffustion-weighted MR, new contrast agents, breast MR, and current guidelines for biopsy and intervention. Many new images, expanded content, and full-color throughout make the fourth edition of this classic text a comprehensive review that is ideal as a first reader for beginning residents, a reference during rotations, and a vital resource when preparing for the American Board of Radiology examinations. More than just a book, the fourth edition is a complete print and online package. Readers will also have access to fully searchable content from the book, a downloadable image bank containing all images from the text, and study guides for each chapter that outline the key points for every image and table in an accessible format—ideal for study and review. This is the 1 volume set.
Body MRI: Cases in Radiology serves as a ready reference of 141 cases and nearly 900 superb quality images of common and uncommon conditions encountered in the daily practice of body MRI. The book is specifically intended for radiology residents and fellows as a study guide to broaden clinical knowledge and improve diagnostic skills when reviewing MR images of the liver, biliary system, pancreas, urinary tract, adrenal glands, peritoneal cavity, spleen, gastrointestinal system, female genital tract, vascular system, and heart. The selected cases provide outstanding examples of various disease states and their appearances as demonstrated by MR imaging using a variety of pulse sequences. Each case is shown on the front page with a brief clinical history and multiple, carefully selected images that best show the important findings. When turning the page, the imaging findings, differential diagnosis and important teaching points are given in bullet-point format facilitating the learning process and allowing the reader to improve interpretation and diagnostic capability in body MRI. Cases are presented in random order to mimic the diagnostic challenges that typically occur when reading the daily worklist of cases in a routine clinical body MRI practice. Readers can also review the cases by organ system through the Index of Cases found in the back of the book. Body MRI Cases is also an excellent companion study guide to Essentials of Body MRI by the same authors. Together, these texts provide an excellent foundation in Body MRI.
Essentials of Body MRI extensively covers the field, offering clear and detailed guidance on MRI as an invaluable tool for the primary diagnosis and problem solving of diseases of the body, including the abdomen, liver, pancreas, pelvis, heart, urinary tract, and great vessels. The beginning chapters focus on the physics, pulse sequences, and other practical considerations related to body MR imaging, explained in an easy to understand way, to help the reader fully comprehend the imaging appearance of clinical disease. The remaining chapters discuss clinical applications, with topics spanning from the normal anatomic structures and diagnosis of abdominal, pelvic, cardiac, and vascular diseases to the modality's role as a tool for solving diagnostic problems. The key points of each chapter are boxed as Essentials to Remember for rapid review and learning. Written in clear, accessible text, and featuring 887 figures and numerous tables, Essentials of Body MRI is a resource that radiology residents, fellows, and anyone else who wants to learn about Body MRI, will turn to again and again.
