Oxford University Press, Aug 24, 2016 - Diagnostic imaging - 330 pages
50 Imaging Studies Every Doctors Should Know presents key studies that have shaped the practice of radiology. Selected using a rigorous methodology, the studies cover topics including: headache, back pain, chest pain, abdominal and pelvic pain, bone, joint, and extremity pain, cancer screening and management, and radiation exposure from medical imaging. For each study, a concise summary is presented with an emphasis on the results and limitations of the study, and its implications for practice. An illustrative clinical case and radiologic image conclude each review, followed by brief information on other relevant studies. This book is a must-read for health care professionals and anyone who wants to learn more about the data behind clinical practice.
