Show synopsis This well-illustrated textbook provides a foundation in the basic principles of pathology and familiarizes readers with the radiographic appearances of diseases and injuries that are most likely to be diagnosed with medical imaging. An introductory chapter on pathology introduces the pathologic terms used throughout the book. This chapter also describes the advantages and limitations of six widely-used modalities: ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and positron emission tomography (PET). Each of the remaining chapters covers the pathology of a particular body system. A new summary of findings follows each major discussion of common pathologies and is presented in an easy-to-read table. Chapter outlines, goals, objectives, Radiographer Notes - helpful suggestions on how to produce optimal radiographs of a specific organ system - and end-of-chapter questions help readers understand concepts and assess their comprehension.
