About this book

This book provides comprehensive information on Diagnostic Imaging for polytrauma patients. It provides extensive and detailed explanations of the semiotics of traumatic injuries, the correlation with the trauma’s mechanism of action, and the meaning and appearance of prognostic indicators. The book begins with a discussion of the management of polytrauma patients. Particular attention is given to the role of radiology in management, and each chapter includes an assessment of the radiological findings to be used as a clinical decision-making tool. Several typical cases are shown, supplemented by a wealth of images. The book offers a useful tool both for radiologists, who will find in it a valuable guide to correctly diagnosing traumatic injuries, and for clinicians, who will come to better understand the findings of the diagnostic tests performed on their patients

Reviews

“The intent is to provide a comprehensive review of imaging findings in trauma patients. The book focuses on patients with more than one site of injury and addresses patterns of injuries that are often found together. The authors identify radiologists as the primary audience and, indeed, the book is appropriate for this audience. ... This is a thorough review of imaging findings in trauma that is well written with excellent images.” (Tara M. Catanzano, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2018)
