Manual of Radiology by Thoroughly updated for its Second Edition, this manual is ideal for residents in training, especially those junior residents learning how to perform procedures and facing the first months of call. The manual encapsulates the core information needed for conducting clinical examinations and determining which imaging examination is appropriate for the large variety of problems that can occur on call. Coverage of each clinical problem includes indications for testing, protocol for test, possible findings, and clues to diagnosis. Suggested readings are also included. This edition covers more procedures and includes more information on drug/contrast media interactions.
