Optimize diagnostic accuracy in the emergency department with Problem Solving in Radiology: Emergency Radiology, a new addition to the popular Problem Solving in Radiology series. Published in association with the American Society of Emergency Radiology, the medical reference book is designed to help experienced radiologists, residents, or emergency medicine practitioners accurately address problematic conditions and reach the most accurate diagnosis.

"This book will have broad appeal to many audiences. It will prove an invaluable resource to any practicing radiologist providing coverage of emergency department imaging, regardless of whether or not the radiologist self-identifies as an emergency radiologist."Foreword by: Stephen Ledbetter, Chief of Radiology Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, May 2015
