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.
