Diagnostic Imaging will help medical students, junior doctors, residents and trainee radiologists understand the principles behind interpreting all forms of imaging. Providing a balanced account of all the imaging modalities available – including plain film, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide imaging and interventional radiology – it explains the techniques used and the indications for their use.

Organised by body system, it covers all anatomical regions. In each region the authors discuss the most suitable imaging technique and provide guidelines for interpretation, illustrating clinical problems with normal and abnormal images.

Diagnostic Imaging is extensively illustrated throughout, featuring high quality full-colour images and more than 600 photographs. The images are downloadable in PowerPoint format from the brand new companion website at, which also has over 100 interactive MCQs, to aid learning and teaching.

When you purchase the book you also receive access to the Wiley E-Text: Powered by VitalSource. This is an interactive digital version of the book, featuring downloadable text and images, highlighting and note-taking facilities, bookmarking, cross-referencing, in-text searching, and linking to references and abbreviations. Diagnostic Imaging is also available on CourseSmart, offering extra functionality as well as an immediate way to access the book. For more details, see or ‘The Anytime, Anywhere Textbook ’ section

Medical imaging is central to many aspects of patient management. Medical students and junior doctors can be forgiven  their  bewilderment  when  faced  with  the  daunting array  of  information  which  goes  under  the  heading 
Diagnostic  imaging’.  Plain  film  examinations  remain  the most frequently requested imaging investigations that nonradiologists may be called on to interpret and we continue to  give  them  due  emphasis.  However,  the  use  of  crosssectional imaging techniques continues to increase and, in some  situations,  has  taken  over  from  the  plain  film.  The growing  use  of  ultrasound,  computed  tomography  (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radionuclide imaging, including positron emission tomography (PET), and interventional radiology is reflected in the new edition.With the widespread availability of most of the various imaging techniques, there are often several ways of investigating  the  same  condition.  We  have  avoided  being  too prescriptive as practice varies depending on the available equipment as well as the preferences of the clinicians and radiologists.  It  is  important,  however,  to appreciate  not only  the  advantages  but  also  the  limitations  of  modern medical imaging.We have continued to try to meet the needs of the medical student  and  doctors  in  training  by  explaining  the  techniques used in diagnostic imaging and the indications for their use. We aim to help the reader understand the principles of interpretation of imaging investigations. New for this edition is the availability of online material, including multiple choice questions for each chapter, allowing readers to test their knowledge.It is beyond the scope of a small book such as this one to describe  fully  the  pathology  responsible  for  the  various imaging  appearances  and  the  role  of  imaging  in  clinical management. Consequently, we encourage our readers to study this book in association with the study of these other subjects
