Specialty Imaging: Pitfalls and Classic Signs of the Abdomen and Pelvis, written by leading experts, Dr. Khaled M. Elsayes, Dr. Akram A. Shaaban, and their team, provides practicing radiologists and radiology residents with the level of knowledge necessary to avoid misinterpretation and help make precise diagnosis in the presence of certain classic pathognomonic features.
Unlike other texts on the subject, this book treats diagnosis from a practical point of view. The cases walk you through a radiology expert's analysis of imaging pitfalls and classic signs of the abdomen and pelvis. These cases are presented progressively, with the expert's thought process described in detail. The cases highlight clinical presentation, relevant pathology, anatomy, physiology, and pertinent imaging features of common disease processes.
As with all Amirsys references, all of the information is distilled into succinct, bulleted text with thousands of images and illustrations. Coupled with a companion eBook, this volume is an irreplaceable textbook for anyone confronted with the challenges of imaging in the abdominal and pelvic areas.
