As medical imaging plays an increasingly important role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients, it has become vital for medical practitioners to have a thorough understanding of the many complicated techniques available. The Oxford Handbook of Medical Imaging is a practical quick-reference guide to all the modalities and techniques of imaging for medical and surgical conditions. Practical and easy to use, the handbook covers all common diagnoses, symptoms, and conditions. Medical and surgical emergencies are covered, along with explanations of the rationale behind each imaging techinque and the common questions likely to be asked. Fully illustrated throughout with example images from real cases, the indications, merits, and drawbacks of all the various modalities are explained in quick bullet points for ease of understanding and quick reference. Each chapter (where appropriate) is split into handy sections on differential diagnosis, presenting symptoms, and common conditions, so you will always have the most relevant information at your fingertips. This handbook is sure to be a constant companion for all radiographers and students, junior doctors, clinicians, and anyone who works with medical imaging.
