Elsevier Health Sciences, 2006 - Medical - 330 pages
This book presents radiological images covering the spectrum of radiology used in general surgery including plain X-rays, contrast studies, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine studies. Images in this text have been selected specifically to illustrate key features of importance in surgical diagnosis and management. Each section has been written in conjunction with a radiologist and practicing surgeon to ensure its clinical relevance. The text is divided into two main sections. The first focuses on the various forms of imaging ranging from plain film radiography up to PET scanning and nuclear medicine. The second section is organized by a series of clinical perspectives and illustrates the application of appropriate imaging techniques to clinical problems.
