This book demonstrates how even difficult cases can be diagnosed by taking a systematic approach to image interpretation. Drawing upon decades of experience, Dr. Freyschmidt guides readers from case to case while solving the core problems that arise in making a diagnosis. He shows how initially challenging cases can be turned into cases that only seemed difficult at the outset.
