In recent years, we have published two books on Emergency Radiology:
Trauma Radiology Companion, Second Edition
This is an easy-to-use, quick reference for trauma imaging designed for radiology residents, radiologists, and emergency physicians. The bulleted, key point format allows rapid access to succinct information for use in the clinical setting. Unlike traditional radiologic texts that emphasize image interpretation and follow a radiographic pattern, disease-oriented, anatomic site, or modality-specific approach, this handbook provides easy-to-look-up answers to common and uncommon questions that arise in day-to-day work, as well as in training and studying. The text is written in bulleted style to emphasize key points related to the common diagnoses encountered in the trauma setting. This new edition presents up-to-date clinical and radiologic information and images, represents all imaging modalities now in use, and includes current MDCT protocols.
Pearls and Pitfalls in Emergency Radiology
Variants and Other Difficult Diagnoses
Rapid recognition of life-threatening illnesses and injuries expedites appropriate management and improves clinical outcomes. False-positive interpretations in radiology have been identified as a significant cause of error, leading to unnecessary investigation and treatment, increased healthcare costs, and delays in appropriate management. Moreover, it is important that radiologists do not miss important subtle diagnoses that need urgent intervention. Pearls and Pitfalls in Emergency Radiology provides an outline of common imaging artefacts, anatomic variants and critical diagnoses that the radiologist must master in order to guide appropriate care and avoid malpractice lawsuits. One hundred selected cases – illustrated with several hundred images from MRI, MDCT, PET, ultrasound and radiographs – are presented in a succinct and structured format, highlighting key pearls and potential diagnostic pitfalls. The text focuses on emergent presentations of diseases in all body regions in both adults and children.
- The structured format and key points provide a quick reference point for the emergency department
- Over 100 cases provide a fully illustrated compendium of what to look for and what to dismiss
- Describes important diagnoses that are commonly missed or misinterpreted
