Emergency Radiology presents a comprehensive review of emergency pathologies commonly encountered by practicing radiologists and residents in training. The first five sections are organized by organ system and include Head, Neck, Face, and Spine, Chest, Abdominal, Pelvic, and Bone emergencies, followed by chapters on Pediatric and Nuclear Medicine emergencies and special topics in emergency imaging. Part of the Rotations in Radiology series, this book offers a guided approach to imaging diagnosis with examples of all imaging modalities complimented by the basics of interpretation and technique and the nuances necessary to arrive at the best diagnosis. Each pathology is covered with a targeted discussion that reviews the definition, clinical features, anatomy and physiology, imaging techniques, differential diagnosis, clinical issues, key points, and further reading. This organization is ideal for trainees' use during specific rotations and for exam review, or as a quick refresher for the established emergency imager.
