This new edition of Fundamentals of Radiology brings up to date the consummate, classic work by Lucy Frank Squire and Robert A. Novelline that has introduced generations of medical students to radiology.
The standard introductory text for more than thirty years, Fundamentals of Radiology is a model of clarity and comprehensiveness. Robert Novelline continues that tradition by thoroughly updating and expanding this edition to reflect the latest types and uses of imaging techniques. Complementing the text are many superb reproductions of plain film, computed tomography, magnetic-resonance, and ultrasound images--hundreds of them new to this edition. In addition, Novelline has added five important chapters. A new chapter near the beginning of the book provides an atlas of drawings and images that allows the reader to review normal plain film and CT anatomy. Another new chapter is devoted to vascular imaging, including CT angiography, MR angiography, and vascular ultrasound, especially full-color Doppler ultrasound images. The chapter on interventional radiology covers therapeutic procedures performed by radiologists, such as angioplasty, embolization, and percutaneous biopsy. To address the different medical conditions of males, females, and children, another new chapter examines the imaging of obstetrical, gynecological, testicular, prostate, and urethral disorders, and considers a variety of childhood ailments and problems, including child abuse. Finally, a new chapter on TB and AIDS shows how radiology can track the course of a single disease over time and trace the depredations of a multisystem disease.
