Surgical residents receive no formal training on reading imaging studies. Imaging
For Surgical Disease was written to be a tool they can carry with them to help
identify common surgical disease.
Authored by surgeons instead of radiologists, this quick reference guide only presents the information surgeons will need to effectively use radiology to help confirm the diagnosis.
Using bulleted text, this quick reference covers 100 conditions in all areas general surgical residents will see in their training. Each section of the book concentrates on one specific disease process and includes images demonstrating positive findings. Each image is clearly labeled to highlight the area of interest as well as surrounding anatomy for reference points.
Designed to fit in a resident’s pocket, this compact handbook will help the reader get a better understanding of which diagnostic imaging is appropriate for each patient and how it should be ordered.
