Main description

200 of the most common cases for radiology on-call/emergency situations--in one uncommon guide

Radiology On-Call covers the full spectrum of clinical scenarios that you are likely to see in the emergency department or during an in-house call. Two hundred cases are logically arranged by organ system, supported by 375 precise, state-of-the-art radiographs, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine and ultrasound images that accelerate on-the-spot clinical decision-making.

Radiology On-Call has an easy-to-navigate, streamlined style that features annotated images and minimal text. The author provides only those facts and brief descriptions that are needed to become familiar with each entity.
