A comprehensive reference for emergency radiology and an unsurpassed source of practical information about imaging of the acutely ill and injured patients
While the focus remains on conventional, plain-film radiography--still the most commonly performed examinations in emergency and trauma settings--substantial coverage is given to MRI, CT (including for blunt abdominal & thoracic trauma), CT angiography (for lower & upper extremities and esp. for gunshot wounds) in the emergency dept., and ultrasound. This fifth edition remains the gold standard of texts on emergency radiology, with appeal both to radiologists and emergency medicine specialists.
