Imaging represents the most dynamic sub-discipline of emergency medicine, as recent technological advances have revealed. The use of ultrasound, MRI, and CT scans has revolutionized the way that acute injuries and conditions are managed in the emergency room. More sophisticated imaging modalities are commonplace now, enabling acute conditions such as cardiac arrest, aortic aneurysm, and fetal trauma to be diagnosed within seconds. This book is a new clinical resource in the field of emergency radiology and covers both the technical applications and interpretation of all imaging studies utilized in the emergency room, including x-rays, MRI, CT, and contrast angiography. The full spectrum of conditions diagnosed within each modality is covered in detail, and examples of normal radiologic anatomy, patterns, and anomalies are also included. With over 2,000 images to comprehensively cover every aspect of radiology in the emergency room, it is a standard reference for emergency physicians.
