A–Z of Emergency Radiology 1st edition pdf
Radiology plays an integral role in various medical specialities, with Accident and Emergency (A&E) being no exception.The nature of A&E medicine is such that a clinician encounters a potentially huge variety of pathologies in
any one shift. Consequently, the various radiological investigations requested in theA&E setting often form the cornerstone of accurate patient management.
Many established textbooks are available in Medicine, Surgery and Paediatrics for example,which detail the management of various disease processes.Similarly there are textbooks of radiology that detail the radiology of the same.However, it is not uncommon for a clinician to require both the management and radiology immediately to hand when confronted by a sick patient.This is where we hope this A–Z of Emergency Radiology 1st edition book comes in.
The A–Z of Emergency Radiology 1st edition book is divided into conveniently recognised body sections; head and face, cervical spine, thorax, abdomen, upper limb and lower limb.Within each section we have covered a ‘core’ set of diagnoses that regularly present themselves to A&E and, where possible, have subdivided each diagnosis according to characteristic, clinical features, radiological features and management.The supplied radiographs have been chosen both for their high quality and as excellent examples of the conditions being described.
A-Z of Emergency Radiology is aimed at trainee and practising radiologists, as well as all other healthcare professionals involved in interpreting scans of all imaging modalities in the emergency room setting. It provides a simple, easily accessible guide to the key aspects of the most commonly encountered problems. The simple A-Z format of the book allows the reader to look up the key features of a known condition, or to quickly confirm a suspected diagnosis.
For each condition, the presentation, key features on seen imaging, and the diagnostic (and differential diagnostic) aspects are all described, with suggestions made for further useful investigations and subsequent treatment where appropriate. Linked conditions, or those with a similar appearance on imaging, are cross-referenced throughout. Image quality is paramount, and the key features of each image are clearly labeled to help the trainee identify the points of interest.
