This easy-to-read Handbook offers clinicians a practical system for interpreting emergency head CT.
This image driven book covers a wide spectrum of conditions likely to be encountered in everyday clinical practice. Practical tips for recognizing subtle pathology, through to the more obvious, are supplemented by easy-to-interpret diagrams. New topics have been added since the first edition, including trauma CT cervical spine interpretation, and an up-to-date section on acute stroke. In addition to the clinical chapters, this Handbook provides simplified technical details, and a brief historical background, making it an excellent reference manual and learning aide for all clinicians with an interest in emergency CT head interpretation.
