New York/Stuttgart - Thieme Publishers is pleased to announce that the third edition of "Differential Diagnosis in Conventional Radiology" is now available. The new book by Francis A. Burgener, MD, Martti Kormano, MD, and Tomi Pudas, MD, is essential for making conventional x-ray an effective tool in diagnosing disorders affecting bones and joints as well as thoracic and abdominal body segments.
This new edition features a fully updated and revised section on radiology of the abdomen. The recently published "Bones and Joint Disorders" and "The Chest X-Ray," both of which were written by the same authors, are incorporated in this section.
Organized according to classifications of radiologic findings rather than disease, the book enables readers to approach diagnosis in a way reflecting the actual clinical situation. Comprehensive tables concisely outline key information on diagnosis and differential diagnosis.
Uniquely organized chapters are structured based on radiologic findings, mirroring situations encountered daily in clinical practice. Additional highlights include easy-to-read tables that are reviewable at-a-glance as well as more than 2000 radiographs and schematic diagrams.
"Differential Diagnosis in Conventional Radiology" is an asset to radiologists and specialists seeking to improve their skills in diagnostic imaging and residents preparing for examinations.
