About this book
Advanced Imaging of the Abdomen bridges the interface between the referring clinician and radiologist on the unusual clinical presentation or imaging finding and explores imaging approaches to solve a particular problem.
Emphasis is given to choice of imaging procedures, expected diagnostic yield, discussion of pertinent imaging findings and possible differential diagnosis. Aimed at the clinician-radiologist interface, as a guide for both, it also provides the practicing radiologist with a reference for the unusual or unique imaging finding in the abdomen. The book includes extensive lists, tables and illustrations comprising ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance images, scintigraphy and other imaging modalities.
This book is invaluable to the clinician (internist, gastroenterologist, general surgeon, urologist and related specialist) looking for guidance on an up-to-date imaging modality and any discussion with a radiologist in order to arrive at a proposed imaging approach.
