First Aid Radiology for the Wards: Latha Ganti, S. Matthew Stead, Matthew S. Kaufman
Exploring the question as to why more than half the world continues to have little or no access to medical imaging and radiology, this important second edition, fully revised and expanded, offers not only answers but practical solutions, providing new tools, ideas, and strategies for bringing vital radiology to low-resource areas. Based on RAD-AID´s ten years of work (2008-2018) serving indigent communities around the world, the book´s interdisciplinary approach offers the synthesis of business management, government policy formulation, clinical methods, and engineering in order to integrate economic development, technology innovation, clinical model planning, educational strategies, and public health measures. The gold-standard title in the field, Radiology in Global Health, 2 nd Edition is intended for a broad audience, including physicians (especially radiologists and radiology residents), radiology technologists, radiology nurses, sonographers, hardware/software engineers, policy-makers, business leaders, researchers, and public health specialists at all levels who use or implement health care services for underserved populations. In addition, as health care providers use radiology in the process of clinical decision-making, this title is also designed for clinical physicians, nurses, nurse-practitioners, physician assistants, and paramedical personnel. Administrators and public health personnel will also be interested, as the planning of radiology services for health care systems at both the facility level and at the population level requires a clear understanding of the technological challenges and management opportunities.
Since it was first published, Accident and Emergency Radiology: A Survival Guide has become the classic in-my-pocket-reference and an indispensable aid to all those who work in the Emergency Department. The core and substantial value lies in the step-by-step analytical approaches which help you to answer this question: ´´These images look normal to me, but . . . how can I be sure that I am not missing a subtle but important abnormality?´´ ´´This book will provide essential reading and support to A&E trainees, medical students, radiology trainees, reporting radiographers and clinical nurse specialists, all of whom may be faced with trauma cases requiring accurate diagnosis and treatment.´´ Reviewed by : RAD Magazine Feb 2015 ´´... Very nearly flawless...contains just the right amount of information to accommodate readers from trainees through to consultant or attending level.´´ Reviewed by African Journal of Emergency Medicine , Jun 2015

This superbly illustrated atlas provides a comprehensive presentation of the normal sectional anatomy of the musculoskeletal system to aid in the diagnosis of diseases affecting the joints, soft tissues, bones, and bone marrow. A precise, full-color drawing accompanies each high-quality sectional image, helping the reader to gain a solid understanding of the topographic anatomy and to differentiate between normal and pathologic conditions. Following examples of whole-body imaging, the atlas offers complete representations of the spinal column and the upper and lower extremities. The contiguous images of the extremities in transverse sections facilitate the identification of structures extending beyond the joints. Key features: Top-quality MRI scans, including whole-body views, produced with the most current, high-performance equipment Full-color illustrations drawn by the authors for optimal precision and accuracy Easy identification of anatomic structures through a uniform color code in the drawings Contiguous cross-sectional anatomy of the extremities Information on the location and direction of each slice for rapid orientation Atlas of Sectional Anatomy: The Musculoskeletal System is an invaluable reference for the daily practice of radiologists, radiology residents, and radiologic technologists.
Since the first edition was published in 1993, the book has become the standard text for radiographers, technologists, radiology residents, radiologists and even sales representatives on the subject of magnetic resonance imaging. This text is essential reading on postgraduate courses. Furthermore MRI in Practice has come to be known as the number one reference book and study guide in the areas of MR instrumentation, principles, pulse sequences, image acquisition, and imaging parameters for the advanced level examination for MRI offered by the American Registry for Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) in the USA. The book explains in clear terms the theory that underpins magnetic resonance so that the capabilities and operation of MRI systems can be fully appreciated and maximised. This fourth edition captures recent advances, and coverage includes: parallel imaging techniques and new sequences such as balanced gradient echo. Building on the success of the first three editions, the fourth edition has been fully revised and updated. It also now has a companion website which hosts animated versions of a selection of illustrations in the book to aid with the reader´s comprehension of some of the more difficult concepts. The website also hosts over 200 interactive self-assessment exercises to help the reader test their understanding.
