Critical Observations in Radiology for Medical Students is an ideal companion for medical students and clinicians, with a focus on medical learning and patient management to support clerkship rotations and internship training. This brand new title delivers comprehensive radiological illustrations of various pathologies on different modalities, guiding the reader through the processes of understanding different imaging techniques, requesting the most appropriate medical imaging modality and procedure in order to reach a clinical diagnosis. With a simple approach to a wide-range of organ-based important pathologies from an imaging point of view, this comprehensively illustrated volume uses a simple consistent categorization scheme. This book includes: In-depth evaluations of the strengths and weaknesses for each modality Explanations of the basic physics of different imaging modalities An accessible overview of the current FDA and ACR guidelines for imaging safety, radiation risks, with special guidelines for imaging children and pregnant women An exploration of a wide-range of organ-based pathologies from an imaging point of view.
