Radiation Dose from Multidetector CT (Medical Radiology) 2nd ed

Computed tomography (CT) is a powerful technique providing precise and confident diagnoses. The burgeoning use of CT has resulted in an exponential increase in collective radiation dose to the population. Despite investigations supporting the use of lower radiation doses, surveys highlight the lack of proper understanding of CT parameters that affect radiation dose. Dynamic advances in CT technology also make it important to explain the latest dose-saving strategies in an easy-to-comprehend manner. This book aims to review all aspects of the radiation dose from CT and to provide simple rules and tricks for radiologists and radiographers that will assist in the appropriate use of CT technique. The second edition includes a number of new chapters on the most up-to-date strategies and technologies for radiation dose reduction while updating the outstanding contents of the first edition. Vendor perspectives are included, and an online image gallery will also be available to readers.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Skeletal Musculature (Medical Radiology) 2014th Edition

In the past, MRI has often been assigned a subsidiary role in the diagnostic work-up of muscular diseases owing to the frequent inability of routine MRI protocols to detect pathognomonic findings. This situation is changing with the advent of modern MR imaging techniques that offer deeper insights into various surrogate pathophysiologic parameters. In this book, recognized experts from around the world provide a comprehensive overview of the value of cutting-edge MRI for the assessment of normal and diseased skeletal muscle. A range of aspects are covered, from the general role of MRI in imaging the skeletal musculature, including in comparison with ultrasonography, through to the current value of MRI in the diagnostic work-up of different diseases. In addition, several chapters present research findings in respect of modern morphological and functional MRI techniques and provide examples of the added value provided by these techniques when evaluating muscular diseases.

Getting Started in Clinical Radiology: From Image to Diagnosis 1st Edition

“I read the book for enjoyment and pleasure, as well as enlightenment. It was a delightful learning experience.” –Thomas Lee Bucky, MD

This book teaches radiology in a way that mimics a lively setting on the wards. To have fun in learning the
theoretical basis of imaging and the interpretation of radiographs and other
modalities, in the context of clinical examination and findings, this is the
book for you.

The basics of imaging are described using analogies from daily
life to make them as understandable and memorable as possible. The material of
radiology is described using actual cases; the most common differential
diagnoses are presented. A great amount of image material supports the learning
process.

A storyline runs through the book: four students in their final year of
medical school are involved in active discussion of the cases, so that the
reader also feels a part of the diagnostic process.

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.
