Description:

Rapid recognition of life-threatening illnesses and injuries expedites appropriate management and improves clinical outcomes. False-positive interpretations in radiology have been identified as a significant cause of error, leading to unnecessary investigation and treatment, increased healthcare costs, and delays in appropriate management. Moreover, it is important that radiologists do not miss important subtle diagnoses that need urgent intervention. Pearls and Pitfalls in Emergency Radiology provides an outline of common imaging artefacts, anatomic variants and critical diagnoses that the radiologist must master in order to guide appropriate care and avoid malpractice lawsuits. One hundred selected cases – illustrated with several hundred images from MRI, MDCT, PET, ultrasound and radiographs – are presented in a succinct and structured format, highlighting key pearls and potential diagnostic pitfalls. The text focuses on emergent presentations of diseases in all body regions in both adults and children.

There has been an enormous increase in utilization of imaging technology in emergency departments. Pearls and Pitfalls in Emergency Radiology provides an outline of common imaging artefacts, anatomic variants and critical diagnoses for the radiologist. Each case is presented in a succinct format, highlighting its key pearls and potential pitfalls.

User’s Review:

This book is intended to help the radiologist who is interpreting images generated from the emergency department or as part of the emergency care of a patient. The bulk of the book focuses on advanced imaging modalities such as CT and MRI. As such, emergency physicians will find much less value in this book than radiologists will. The radiologist will find about 100 cases presented with about 700 high-quality images supporting them. The cases include ones titled isodense subdural hemorrhage, globe injuries, variants of the upper cervical spine, and pseudopneumomediastinum.

Great book, covers many of the nuances in making critical decisions in ER radiology. Well illustrated
