Trauma Radiology Companion, second edition is an easy-to-use, quick reference for trauma imaging designed for radiology residents, radiologists, and emergency physicians.
The bulleted, key point format allows rapid access to succinct information for use in the clinical setting. Unlike traditional radiologic texts that emphasize image interpretation and follow a radiographic pattern, disease-oriented, anatomic site, or modality-specific approach, this handbook provides easy-to-look-up answers to common and uncommon questions that arise in day-to-day work, as well as in training and studying. The text is written in bulleted style to emphasize key points related to the common diagnoses encountered in the trauma setting.
This new edition presents up-to-date clinical and radiologic information and images, represents all imaging modalities now in use, and includes current MDCT protocols.
