A detailed, pattern-based approach to abdominal imaging interpretation
Diagnostic Abdominal Imaging provides a comprehensive review of abdominal diseases based onpattern recognition. Utilizing more than 2,300 images, the book includes discussions of the x-ray, sonographic, CT, MRI, and nuclear radiology features of abdominal diseases. Since accurate imaging diagnosis of diseases can only be achieved with the appropriate clinical history, thecharacteristic clinical presentations of abdominal diseases are discussed in conjunction with the image findings.
Presented in fifteen organ-based chapters that highlight differentiation of disease on the basis of imaging patterns, Diagnostic Abdominal Imaging discusses the full spectrum of malignant and nonmalignant abdominal disorders. Each discussion begins with the most salient histologic, pathologic, and clinical features of the disorder under discussion. This is followed by a systematic review of the imaging features of the disease as seen by all modalities.
Unlike most radiology texts which are organized by pathology, Diagnostic Abdominal Imaging isorganized by imaging appearance—mimicking real-world practice. The book guides you through the process of imaging-based diagnosis and stresses the epidemiological, clinical, and imaging features that allow the most accurate prediction of disease.Features:
- More than 2,300 images
- Clear, concise guidelines for determining a diagnosis
- Imaging Notes emphasize the critical features of imaging interpretation
- Designed to simulate the routine daily analysis that leads to a diagnosis
