About this book

This book is a comprehensive account of imaging of acute appendicitis and other appendiceal diseases. Background information is first provided on clinical presentation, perforation and negative appendectomy rates, and treatment options.  The role of each imaging modality – radiography, ultrasound, CT, and MRI – is then considered separately in adults and children with suspected acute appendicitis. Many high-quality illustrations are included, and detailed information is provided on appropriate protocols and radiation saving. Further chapters addresses the spontaneously resolving and chronic appendicitis as well as other appendiceal lesions and review the findings of evidence-based medicine and cost-effectiveness analyses. Emergency physicians, pediatricians, surgeons, and radiologists will all find this book to be an excellent source of information and guidance.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The internationally renowned authors present an expansive overview of the clinical problem, starting with the history of its management, moving through clinical assessment, modern treatment and providing an authoritative discussion of current best practice in imaging. … This is a very well written and edited book, crammed full of useful information and interesting images that I will, I am sure, and myself referring to again and again … .” (Gareth Lewis, RAD Magazine, January, 2013)

“The aim of this very beautiful book is to present all possible information about appendicitis in all its facets, both in adults and children, describing in depth: clinical, laboratory, pathology and imaging data in order to offer clinicians, surgeons and Emergency Departments staff members a proper and updated guide to RLQ problems. … a must have book.” (Giampiero Beluffi, La radiologia medica, Vol. 118, 2013)
