I read the book for enjoyment and pleasure, as well as enlightenment. It was a delightful learning experience.--Thomas Lee Bucky, MDThis 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.

Radiology is a routine diagnostic procedure in all fields of clinical veterinary practice, and exotic medicine is no exception. Besides an increasing interest and concurrent demand for a higher level of care of these species, very little is reported in the scientific literature about normal radiographic patterns, and radiographic abnormalities are generally limited to case reports. Clinical Radiology of Exotic Companion Mammals is designed to fill this gap. It provides a practical resource for veterinarians wishing to add these special species to their clinical practice, and a ready reference for those already including those species among their caseload. Clearly labeled normal images will aid anyone interested in comparative radiographic anatomy, and the techniques section will help overcome difficulties related to the smaller size of many exotic companion mammals. Features of the book include: wide range of exotic mammal species beyond ferrets, rabbits, and rodents, including species such as marsupials, hedgehogs and potbellied pigs a review of the basic principles of radiology, equipment, radiologic techniques and patient positioning helpful for optimizing exotic companion mammal radiography an extensive review of both normal and pathologic radiographic patterns. Some of the latter are accompanied by clinical or surgical images to aid the practitioner in familiarization with a wide range of both common and uncommon lesions.

A 36-year-old housewife presents in the emergency department complaining of progressively increasing breathlessness over the last two weeks, accompanied by wheeze and a productive cough. You are the medic on duty... 100 Cases in Radiology presents 100 radiological anomalies commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors on the ward, in outpatient clinics or in the emergency department. A succinct summary of the patient's history, examination and initial investigations, including imaging photographs, is followed by questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answer includes a detailed discussion of each topic, with further illustration where appropriate, providing an essential revision aid as well as a practical guide for students and junior doctors. Making clinical decisions and choosing the best course of action is one of the most challenging and difficult parts of training to become a doctor. These cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important radiological signs, and the medical and/or surgical conditions to which these relate, and to develop their diagnostic and management skills.

By the time medical students graduate and become junior hospital doctors they should be able to recognise basic radiological signs and apply relevant diagnostic imaging investigations. However, partly due to an overcrowded undergraduate curriculum, students in many medical schools have relatively little instruction in diagnostic radiology. 'Clinical Radiology for Medical Students' however, remedies this situation by providing the student with a comprehensive guide to basic diagnostic radiology and its value or limitations. For this new edition, 'Clinical Radiology for Medical Students' has been completely updated and the content expanded to include not only the new imaging modalities but also an introductory section covering other equally important aspects of radiology. These include chapters on how to use a department of clinical radiology, details of the different contrast agents used in radiological investigations and information on how images are actually produced. The inclusion of these and other relevant subject areas means that the third edition of this well-established textbook will provide the medical student with a thorough understanding of all aspects of diagnostic radiology together with a basic knowledge of its application in a clinical setting. This textbook should be an essential component of any medical student's bookshelf.

This essential handbook provides indispensable guidance for all those seeking or reporting investigations in radiology which arises in an emergency setting. It summarises the major problems faced on-call and provides advice on the most suitable radiological tests to request as well as suggesting an appropriate timescale for imaging. From a radiologist's perspective, it lists in concise format the protocol for each test and outlines the expected findings. Emergency radiology is a crucial component of emergency care as a whole. It is rare for a patient to undergo emergency surgery or treatment without prior imaging. Radiology is the new gate-keeper in clinical practice with an emergency CT scan of the head being performed in most UK hospitals every day. Radiology can confirm a diagnosis, sending a patient down a pathway of established therapy; confirm normality, leading to patient discharge; detect an unsuspected abnormality, suggesting an alternative action altogether; or be non-contributory. This concise, portable handbook supports emergency-setting radiology and helps the reader in this vital field.
Multiple Choice Questions are the most common method of assessing knowledge in radiology. This book has more than 1000 questions, covering all the essential topics in Gastrointestinal Radiology. The questions have been divided into separate topics, which will enable revising the subjects on a topic basis, with due emphasis on anatomy, techniques and pathology. The questions have been designed on the format used by the Royal College of Radiologists UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand. There is a single question with five stems, which require a true or false response. The answers and detailed explanations are provided at the end of each chapter. This book will be a valuable resource for review and practice prior to the Fellowship exams. Bibliographies have been provided for further reading.
