  • About this book

  • Symptom-based guide to the planning, performance, evaluation, and reporting of diagnostic radiology examinations
  • Identifies essential imaging findings and their relevance to diagnosis and treatment decisions
  • Ideal aid for residents, younger radiologists, and general radiologists who need to investigate and report on head and neck lesions​
Most referrals for radiological examinations are accompanied by a clinical question based on symptoms or signs. However, while in the real world the approach to diagnosis typically starts from symptoms or signs, radiology books are usually organized around categories of pathology, such as congenital, inflammatory, and neoplastic. This approach has the drawback that the same symptom may be caused by lesions belonging to different categories, which makes it difficult for the reader to identify the most common causes of a specific symptom. This book on the imaging of head and neck lesions is helpfully organized according to clinical symptoms. Each chapter outlines the clinical relevance and mechanisms of the symptom in question, explains when and why different imaging modalities are indicated, presents imaging protocols, includes a differential diagnostic flow chart based on imaging findings, and offers clear guidance on reporting of examinations. The book will be of value to residents, younger radiologists, and also general radiologists who are confronted with the challenging task of choosing the best imaging technique and protocol and correctly interpreting the results in patients with head and neck lesions. ​
