Radiology Lecture Notes 3rd Edition PDF
13.5 MB PDF
This book is intended to be a concise introductory guide to radiology, principally for medical students, but it should also be of value to radiographers and junior doctors. The contents cover the imaging techniques, basic film interpretation and specialized radiological investigations currently available. Emphasis is on conventional plain film and contrast radiology, as it is essential that interpretation of these fundamentals is mastered before progressing to more advanced imaging techniques, such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Despite recent major technological strides, conventional radiology still has a crucial role to play in the assessment of a large number of patients and it is important, therefore, that the basics of radiology be learnt to assist patient management.
Radiology has assumed a central role in the initial diagnosis as well as subsequent management of patients. The burden on the medical curriculum is continually increasing, so the format of the book is arranged such that it can be covered within a short space of time. The clinical orientation should ensure that the importance of radiology is not taken out of context with the routine care of patients, serving also as an aid to reinforce some essential background information.
The book is divided into sections by body systems, with a brief description of techniques and investigations given at the beginning of several chapters. This should assist understanding of the basic principles of the large number of available procedures for imaging a particular problem, in order that the correct investigation for each clinical situation can be chosen. Radiology is a vast subject; the essentials are presented and discussed in this book to provide a basic foundation course in radiology. For more detailed information the many excellent textbooks available should be consulted.
