This book covers the normal anatomy of the human body as seen in the entire gamut of medical imaging. It does so by an initial traditional anatomical description of each organ or system followed by the radiological anatomy of that part of the body using all the relevant imaging modalities. The third edition addresses the anatomy of new imaging techniques including three-dimensional CT, cardiac CT, and CT and MR angiography as well as the anatomy of therapeutic interventional radiological techniques guided by fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT and MR. The text has been completely revised and over 140 new images, including some in colour, have been added. A series of ‘imaging pearls’ have been included with most sections to emphasise clinically and radiologically important points. The book is primarily aimed at those training in radiology and preparing for the FRCR examinations, but will be of use to all radiologists and radiographers both in training and in practice, and to medical students, physicians and surgeons and all who use imaging as a vital part of patient care. The third edition brings the basics of radiological anatomy to a new generation of radiologists in an ever-changing world of imaging.

This monograph is based on the authors’ extensive experience in the areas of clinical endocrinology and diagnostic imaging, their clinical and research work and insight gained from teaching medical students and doctors in the Czech Republic and abroad. The chapters contain embryological and anatomical notes, clinical characteristics of individual endocrinopathies, laboratory and function tests, including reference values, indications and algorithms of imaging methods and principles of rational modern therapy of individual pathologies, including further clinical monitoring of patients. Texts also give practical advice regarding how to approach patients with endocrine gland diseases, point out some potential misinterpretations of examination results and are supplemented with numerous images of pathological states, which are almost exclusively sourced from the authors’ private archives. The chapter on diabetes mellitus centres on the complications of diagnosing diabetes and on the mutual relation between diabetes and other endocrinopathies. Focusing primarily on clinical practice, the work does not elaborate on pathophysiology, but covers only the most recent pertinent literature from the discipline. What makes this comprehensible publication exceptional is the fact that it not only presents the clinical view of the endocrinologist on the various covered subjects, but the reader is also given the opportunity to learn about current diagnostic trends using imaging methods. This interdisciplinary view offers the reader a comprehensive insight into the field and the necessary knowledge for their clinical practice. This monograph is intended for medical students, junior endocrinologists, diabetologists, radiologists and general practitioners interested in endocrinology, however, it can be useful also for doctors preparing for medical postgraduate certification in endocrinology and imaging methods as it undoubtedly provides valuable information.
Bringing together conventional contrast media studies, computed tomography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging including hybrid imaging using SPECT-CT and PET-CT, DXA studies and digital interventional procedures into one volume, this definitive book is the essential source of information on the use and application of these imaging modalities in radiography. Taking a systemic anatomical approach, carefully designed to be clear and consistent throughout and mirroring that in the popular and established textbook Clark’s Positioning in Radiography, each chapter is highly illustrated and contains sections detailing anatomy, pathologic considerations, procedure methodology, and an evaluation of recommended imaging modalities. Reflecting the latest clinical imaging pathways and referral guidelines including IR(ME)R 2017, the Map of Medicine and RCR iRefer (8E), Clark’s Diagnostic Imaging Procedures will quickly become established as the standard textbook for students of radiography and radiographer assistant trainees and an invaluable desk reference for practising radiologists.

In the past two decades the radiological investigation and imaging of paranasal sinus disease has been revolutionised by the introduction of two new techniques: magnetic resonance and computerised tomography. These have made the diagnosis and localisation of neoplastic and non-neoplastic disease a far more exact process and they have completely replaced con ventional pluridirectional tomography as a means of augmenting the initial plain radiographic examination of the paranasal sinuses. The recent introduction into clinical practice of the paramagnetic contrast agent gadolinium DTPA has extended further the range of magnetic resonance in the demonstration of naso-sinus disease. The account which follows is an attempt to summarise present knowledge in this division of otorhinolaryngology imaging. The format of the chapters has been arranged in two halves: the initial nine chapters are concerned with investigative techniques and non-neoplastic disease. while the second half of the book is entirely devoted to benign and malignant tumours. The latter chapters are arranged according to the nomenclature proposed by my two ex-colleagues. Professor I. Friedmann and the late Dr D. A. Osborn. in their book The Pathology of Granulomas and Neoplasms of the Nose and Paranasal Sinuses (Churchill Livingstone. 1982).

(Product Description).
Written by radiologists but for clinicians, and meant for consultation in the "heat of battle" (the busy-sometimes hectic-clinical setting), this one-of-a-kind little book guides you through the most cost-effective and direct imaging route to a diagnosis. Unlike all other books by radiologists, it does not try to teach image interpretation. Rather, covering 65 common clinical problems, from GI bleed, to Pulmonary Embolus, to Myocardial Ischemia, to Stroke, The Clinicians's Guide incorporates all available technologies-Multi-detector CT, MR, CT angiography, MR angiography, PET, and combined PET/CT- to help clinicians get the answers they need. Highlights the relative cost with dollar signs of each imaging test or imaging-guided procedure! (Not available in any other text). Explains in clear, cogent language the step-by-step logic behind the imaging sequence for each problem, yet avoids maddening "flow charts". Each problem-oriented chapter stands alone, for quick and concise guidance in choosing the appropriate test, obviating the need to flip back and forth when there is little time. Incorporates the newest imaging modalities that have drastically changed the work-up for many clinical conditions. Covers the most controversial topics, like CT screening of the healthy population, the value of combined PET/CT scanners, and the place of "virtual" colonoscopy.
Much work, although often fragmentary, has been published by professionals on PACS (picture archiving and communication systems) related issues. This book, however, is unique in its field, providing medical professionals in particular with a state-of-the-art overview of this system. Covering the USA, Western Europe and Japan, it gives an outline of the history, status and future of (digital) medical image handling in the hospital environment during the final two decades of this century (as perceived and experienced by professionals working in this particular field of medicine). It comprises case studies from around the world and, with most of these studies belonging to highly specialized subtopics of the medical imaging area, they provide a good insight into the complexity and problems of the total field. Hence this volume will be invaluable to those in the medical profession, and specifically those with a clear technical interest in medical imaging for daily use in a hospital environment.
