Key Features

  • Combines the innovative pattern approach with more traditional detailed descriptions to emulate real-world patient interaction without sacrificing more in-depth content on disease states.
  • Innovative Pattern Approach uses the patterns that link similar abnormalities to help you learn to identify, and just as importantly, differentiate abnormalities.
  • Extensive cross-referencing from pattern to disease descriptions enables the reader to quickly find more detailed information.
  • Dedicated chapter on the key subject of radiology physics, including algorithms for improving film quality.
  • A glossary of nearly 500 radiological terms.
