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.

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.

Atlas of Operative Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is an innovative, multidisciplinary, contemporary surgical atlas covering core aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery, head and neck reconstructive surgery and facial cosmetic surgery. The text is constructed as a procedure-based surgical atlas with special emphasis placed on depicting surgical techniques with high-resolution color illustrations and images. Chapters are written by experts in their field and are designed to provide high-yield information pertaining to procedure indications, contraindications, pertinent anatomy, techniques, post-operative management, complications and key points. Each chapter concludes with a detailed photographic case report illustrating pertinent procedure specifics such as locations for incisions, anatomical planes of dissection, key steps in the procedure, radiographs findings and pre- and postoperative photographs. Procedures are organized by sections to include: dentoalveolar and implant surgery, odontogenic head and neck infections, maxillofacial trauma surgery, orthognathic and craniofacial surgery, tempomandibular joint surgery, infections of the head and neck, facial cosmetic surgery, and pathology and reconstructive surgery. The combination of concise text, more than 1,000 color clinical illustrations and images, and case reports makes the Atlas of Operative Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery a key reference to all oral and maxillofacial surgeons, head and neck surgeons, and facial plastic surgeons and will serve as a foundation for residency training, board certification and the recently implemented recertification examinations.

There are very few radiology multiple choice question books on the market that reflect the current trends and developments in the field of imaging. Hence, the emphasis of this book is on cross-sectional CT and MR imaging. It highlights the current understanding and concepts in the state-of-the-art imaging of a wide range of diseases in the body. The multiple choice questions are organised according to body systems and imaging modalities. There are twelve sections in the book, testing the reader in a broad range of imaging knowledge. The questions are accompanied by expanded answers, which provide the reader with a summary of the key facts relating to a particular topic. This is especially useful in assisting the reader in consolidating his or her understanding of the subject. The questions are devised in a format similar to those encountered in the Part 2A examination of the Royal College of Radiologists (UK) and the Part 2 examinations of the Joint Australian and New Zealand College of Radiology. Candidates taking the American Radiology Board examinations will also find the book informative.

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.
