Radiology 101: The Basics and Fundamentals of Imaging
William E. Erkonen, Wilbur L. Smith
Lippincott-Raven, 1998 - Medical - 396 pages
Designed as a textbook for medical students, Radiology 101 provides the basic groundwork necessary for interpreting imaging studies and understanding the functions of the various imaging modalities. The first part of the book examines the basic principles and applications of radiography, CT, MR, interventional radiology, nuclear imaging, and mammography. Also included is a pragmatic discussion of medical decision-making as applied to radiologic studies. The second part methodically examines anatomic areas and organ systems and includes separate, excellent chapters on the pediatric chest and abdomen. Each chapter begins with normal anatomy viewed from various angles with various modalities, and then proceeds to normal variants and common pathology. The authors offer guidelines on how to read film systematically and avoid common beginners' pitfalls. The book features more than 800 illustrations and numerous tables displaying indications for imaging and differential diagnosis. Each chapter ends with a short list of key points and suggested reading.
