Description

As the ideal introductory textbook for medical students, junior doctors, trainee radiologists, and practising clinicians, this new edition of Diagnostic Imaging explains the principles of interpretation of all forms of imaging, offering a balanced account of all the modalities available, explaining each technique and when to use it.

Organised by body system and covering all anatomical regions, Armstrong, Wastie and Rockall:

  • explain how to interpret images
  • provide guidelines for interpreting images
  • discuss common diseases and the signs that can be seen using each imaging modality
  • illustrate clinical problems with normal and abnormal images
  • assist diagnosis by covering normal images as well as those for specific disorders
  • show all imaging modalities used in a clinical context

The authors cover use of plain film, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging and interventional radiology, with high quality illustrations and images.

What’s new for the 6th edition?

  • Additional new sections and expanded sections, following reviewer feedback
  • Updated throughout to ensure recommendations and illustrations reflect modern ultrasound CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine (including PET) practice
  • Key points and bullet points to aid learning
