Pitfalls in Diagnostic Radiology Hardback
Edited by Wilfred C. G. Peh
The practice of diagnostic radiology has become increasingly complex, with the use of numerous imaging modalities and division into many subspecialty areas.
It is becoming ever more difficult for subspecialist radiologists, general radiologists, and residents to keep up with the advances that are occurring year on year, and this is particularly true for less familiar topics.
Failure to appreciate imaging pitfalls often leads to diagnostic error and misinterpretation, and potential medicolegal problems.
This textbook, written by experts from reputable centers across the world, systematically and comprehensively highlights the pitfalls that may occur in diagnostic radiology.
Both pitfalls specific to different modalities and techniques and those specific to particular organ systems are described with the help of numerous high-quality illustrations.
Recognition of these pitfalls is crucial in helping the practicing radiologist to achieve a more accurate diagnosis.
