"Handbooks in Radiology is a series of concise soft-cover books reviewing the radiologic subspecialties. Written by faculty members and associates from the distinguished Department of Radiology at the University of Utah School of Medicine, the handbooks are organized either by disease state or by anatomy. Each book presents key concepts and provides a synopsis of information essential for clinical practice and a brief review of the literature. The small size and succinct format enable readers to refer to the handbooks easily in either a clinical or an academic setting." "Handbook of Head and Neck Imaging, second edition, provides a comprehensive review of the diagnosis of cranial nerve, skull base, temporal bone, and extracranial diseases. Featuring more than 200 detailed line drawings, this concise, information-packed handbook emphasizes the anatomic basis for understanding the clinical presentation and histopathologic and radiologic characteristics of common and uncommon lesions in the head and neck region. Differential diagnoses are presented throughout. Each chapter begins with a list of Critical Imaging Questions that help the reader focus on key facts subsequently discussed. In this edition, a new chapter on cystic masses of the head and neck has been added and all other chapters have been expanded and thoroughly updated. New Suggested Readings have been added to all chapters to refer readers to in-depth resources. Organized by regional anatomy, Handbook of Head and Neck Imaging, second edition, will be valuable to radiologists, otolaryngologists, and other medical imaging professionals."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
