About this book

This book explains how radiology can be a powerful tool for establishing the diagnosis of many internal medicine diseases that are usually diagnosed on the basis of their laboratory or clinical presentation. It is organized in the classic fashion for internal medicine books, with eleven chapters covering the different internal medicine specialties. Within these chapters, more than 450 diseases are considered, some of which are rarely encountered but are nonetheless significant. For each disease, radiological and clinical features are displayed in images and high-quality digital medical illustrations, and those differential diagnoses are identified that can be ruled out by imaging alone. In addition, the pathophysiology underlying the radiological features is described, enabling the reader to understand why a particular sign is seen on MR images, CT scans, or plain radiographs.

The book will serve as an excellent radiological atlas for internal medicine practitioners and family physicians, showing disease presentations that may be hard to find in standard medical textbooks and explaining which imaging modalities are likely to be most informative in particular patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This unusual book superbly blends two specialties that are not commonly thought of together - internal medicine and radiology. … The audience includes any clinicians looking for a practical book about the best imaging studies for particular situations. … This results in a highly successful book. … This is a very good book … . It would be a great book for teaching institutions and residency training programs, as it brings together the imaging decision-making process with the anatomy and physiology that should be considered.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2010)

“A physician who practiced internal medicine and then surgery before he became a radiologist, the author explains that this book is designed to help radiologists think like internists … . internists can likewise benefit from this book by learning what help radiologists can offer in establishing a diagnosis. … much value to practicing internists and radiologists, residents in those specialties, and medical students, as well as physicians and allied health care personnel who deal with common medical problems of patients … .” (Leonard Berlin, Journal of the American Medical Association, March, 2011)
