An understanding of current trauma imaging concepts is essential for all medical personnel involved in the care of trauma patients where the outcome may depend on a rapid assessment of the nature and severity of injuries, allowing appropriate medical management and surgical or non-surgical intervention.
Containing more than 300 state of the art full colour images, the ABC of Imaging in Trauma addresses this increasingly important area and provides a concise and practical guide to the role, performance and interpretation of emergency imaging procedures in disaster victims and major trauma patients, and focuses on the use of CT, ultrasound, and MRI scanning to diagnose such patients. It is ideal for the non specialist and emergency physicians, Foundation doctors, trainee radiologists, and specialist trauma nurses.
