Descripción de editorial
Medical director of Sharp and Children’s MRI Center, San Diego, and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine, Russell N. Low, MD affords the referring clinician a thorough yet quick study guide to why MR Imaging has become the imaging method of choice for diagnosing and staging suspected liver disease. While giving clear descriptions of the salient imaging features of liver metastases, hepatocellular carcinomas, gallbladder carcinomas, and the various benign liver lesions such as focal nodal hyperplasia, liver abscesses, and associated peritonitis, Dr. Low also shows how combining side-by-side tests such as MR Cholangiopancreatography and MR Angiography can be employed to elicit further information useful for evaluation of malignant biliary obstruction, as well as arterial anatomy in patients being considered for intrahepatic chemotherapy or as potential liver donors. A veritable wealth of information stuffed into this little book aimed at the busy practitioner.
The “Radiology Guidance for Referring Physicians” series of ibooks offers practicing clinicians - both primary care doctors and specialists - a quick and easy reference to over 100 distinct conditions, and how state-of-the-art imaging should be employed within the context of diagnosis, preoperative staging and therapy monitoring.
Authored by board certified radiologists who also teach at the finest medical schools in the U.S. and abroad, each ibook is presented in a clear and concise manner meant to be read in less than an hour, yet contains all the necessary information with which to base a decision on when to order advanced imaging studies for the particular disease process under review.
The “Radiology Guidance for Referring Physicians” series of sub-specialty mini books offers doctors a way to access crucial information quickly as cases present in daily practice, without having to wade through large, (and expensive) comprehensive volumes.
