Authored by experts in the field, the book Diagnostic Imaging: Emergency represents a source of guidance on emergency imaging. The volume of approximately 1100 pages covers both typical and uncommon imaging diagnoses in emergency medicine. It provides imaging examples for each diagnosis, along with bulleted summaries of terminology, image findings, key facts, differential diagnoses, pathology, clinical issues, a diagnostic checklist and selected references. Extensive image galleries for each diagnosis depict common and variant cases. Crossing modality and anatomy lines, the resource is designed to assist radiologists and the emergency room team in addressing diagnostic dilemmas in the acute setting. R.
