Book Description

'I would have found this book invaluable at medical school, but as a now qualified GP I think it is a fabulous resource. The fact it covers so much is remarkable … It is so comprehensive – great images, well explained.'

Donna Pilkington, GP with an interest in medical education, Northern Ireland, UK

'It is direct and succinct. Just what you need in a portable book that aims to give you the essentials [it does] a great job of incorporating a huge amount of information covering the wide range of radiology examinations and procedures into a readable and practical book for students. A good introduction for year 1 radiology residents too.'

Dr Mike Hurrell, Clinical Senior Lecturer and Consultant Radiologist, University of Otago, Christchurch, New Zealand

'The text works very well for the Medical Imaging Students – providing an overview of each modality and key insights into the clinical question to be resolved … the information is presented in an accessible fashion and well-illustrated.'

Associate Professor Debbie Starkey, Discipline Leader, Medical Radiation Sciences, School of Clinical Sciences, Faculty of Health, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia

Imaging for Students delivers step-by-step guidance to the range of imaging techniques available, providing a clear explanation of how each imaging modality actually works, and including information on the associated risks and hazards. Throughout, the importance of patient preparation and post-procedure observation is emphasized.

Taking information from evidence-based studies and published guidelines, in line with current clinical practice, the book takes a highly logical approach to the investigation of clinical scenarios, where possible indicating the 'best first test'—vital to both appropriate clinical and cost-effective decision-making.

Key Features:

Fully revised and updated – including up-to-date information on the latest imaging techniques including spectral CT, liver elastography, new and emerging PET techniques, multiparametric imaging and the role of AI
