Product description

Diagnostic Imaging in Critical Care: A problem based approach provides an up to date educational resource to enable clinicians to interpret patients imaging investigations. The book is based on a series of problems about critically ill patients. The problems which are of varying degrees of difficulty, begin with a brief clinical history followed by an image or series of images questions are asked about the images and answers provided at the end of the chapter. There are two sets of radiological images for each problem - one set is in the book as part of the problem, and the second set on the DVD - a full set of high quality images such as a reporting radiologist would review (the same images seen on the digital X-ray system used in the author's clinical practice). Problems arranged in chapters based on anatomical region being imaged.Plain X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound images from the full spectrum of disease processes seen in the critically ill adultDVD with high quality images similar to those used in real life. Contains the entire set of problems. DVD allows reader to scroll through a series sequential images giving an appreciation of 3 D anatomy. Proven method of displaying images enhances learning.
