Product Description

Australian Title – Book & CD ROM

Essential Medical Imaging is a concise introductory text covering the clinical role of radiology in adult and paediatric medicine and surgery. The emphasis is on placing radiology in a clinical context and guiding the reader to apply imaging modalities to specific clinical problems. An introductory section outlines the principles of image generation and image interpretation, as well as risks, benefits and costs. Subsequent sections review key clinical considerations and illustrate important radiology findings for each common clinical condition and patient population.

A library of annotated normal radiological images and a terminology and abbreviations section are also included.

A companion CD containing more detailed text and an extensive collection of clinical images accompanies the text.

Highly visual and practical, Essential Medical Imaging is an invaluable resource for medical students, trainees in radiology, medicine & surgery, and for radiographers and all allied health professionals
