William E. Erkonen, Wilbur L. Smith
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005 - Medical - 402 pages
Featuring over 850 illustrations, Radiology 101 provides the basic groundwork necessary for interpreting images and understanding how current imaging modalities function. The first chapter explains the principles, capabilities, and limitations of each imaging modality. Subsequent chapters examine anatomic areas and organ systems, including a separate chapter on the pediatric chest and abdomen. Clearly labeled images show normal anatomy from various angles with various modalities and depict normal variants and common pathology. Each chapter includes suggested radiologic workups and key points summaries. This completely updated edition includes state-of-the-art images and new material on MR spectroscopy, nuclear imaging, the abdomen, mammography, and interventional radiology.
