MDCT and MR Imaging of Acute Abdomen: New Technologies and Emerging Issues 1st ed. 2018 Edition

This superbly illustrated book describes a comprehensive and modern approach to the imaging of abdominal and pelvic emergencies of traumatic and non-traumatic origin. The aim is to equip the reader with a full understanding of the roles of advanced cross-sectional imaging modalities, including dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). To this end, recent literature on the subject is reviewed, and current controversies in acute abdominal and pelvic imaging are discussed. Potential imaging and related pitfalls are highlighted and up-to-date information provided on differential diagnosis. The first two chapters explain an evidence-based approach to the evaluation of patients and present dose reduction strategies for multidetector CT imaging (MDCT).  The remaining chapters describe specific applications of MDCT, DECT, and MRI for the imaging of both common and less common acute abdominal and pelvic conditions, including disorders in the pediatric population and pregnant patients. The book will be of value to emergency and abdominal radiologists, general radiologists, emergency department physicians and related personnel, general and trauma surgeons, and trainees in all these specialties.

Top 3 Differentials in Radiology: A Case Review 2nd Edition

Praise for the first edition:

“Innovative…it would be difficult to find a better high-yield, high-quality textbook covering every subsection of the radiology…board examination.” – JAMA

“Extremely useful for practicing radiologists and radiology residents looking to…acquire the most pertinent knowledge in preparation for board exams, recertification, and general practice…This high-yield way of learning allows the rapid development of…differential diagnoses…for the full range of entities commonly encountered in practice and board exam settings.” – Academic Radiology

“One of the major strengths of this book is…it focuses on short succinct differentials and avoids the laundry-list differentials…The book…is a great value for those looking to develop short clear differentials for the imaging findings…” – Radiology

This fully revised second edition of Top 3 Differentials in Radiology provides a comprehensive core exam review of frequently encountered imaging gamuts in all major radiological subspecialties. Author William O’Brien utilizes the widely acclaimed format of his first edition, with 330 new and updated radiology cases organized into 12 core subspecialty sections. The last section, “Roentgen Classics,” includes cases from each of the previous core sections, with imaging findings characteristic of a single diagnosis.

This book reflects content included in the current radiology board examinations with accurate and concise descriptions of key differentials, which are integral to acing the boards. Each case is formatted as a two-page unit. The left page features clinical images, succinctly captioned radiographic findings, and pertinent clinical history. The right page includes the key imaging gamut, differential diagnoses rank-ordered by the Top 3, additional diagnostic considerations, and clinical pearls.

Key Features

  • More than 700 high quality images, including advanced imaging techniques
  • Rank ordered differentials organized into the Top 3 and additional diagnostic considerations
  • A high-yield review of important imaging and clinical manifestations for all entities on the list of differentials

Atlas of Perioperative 3D Transesophageal Echocardiography: Cases and Videos 1st ed. 2016 Edition

This book presents a series of over 50 cases in 3D transesophageal echocardiography. In each case, background information is followed by a step-by-step approach to patient diagnosis and postoperative outcomes. The book’s most outstanding highlight consists in over 600 illustrations, which mainly focus on 3D transesophageal echocardiography in combination with 2D transesophageal echocardiography, X-ray fluoroscopy and computed tomography to demonstrate the various cardiovascular pathologies. Since the echo images obtained in clinic practice are moving images, it also includes more than 450 videos, which effectively supplement the static illustrations.

The atlas is divided into 11 chapters. Chapters 1 through 3 describe abnormalities affecting mitral, aortic, tricuspid and pulmonary valves, while prosthetic valves are discussed in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 details abnormalities of the aorta. Chapters 6-8 examine coronary artery disease, congenital heart disease and cardiomyopathies, while Chapter 9 explores cases of infective endocarditis. Chapter 10 deals with tumor and mass lesions, and the other cases are collectively addressed in Chapter 11. Offering a valuable new resource, the book will enhance the usefulness of echocardiography during operations as a “third eye” for surgeons.
