Press release from: Thieme Publishers

New York/Stuttgart – With more than 550 high-resolution images, “Critical Care Radiology,” recently published by Thieme, includes the must-know information for performing and interpreting radiographs in an intensive care situation. Focusing on the chest and abdomen, this succinctly-organized text also offers special sections on pediatric patients in intensive care settings.

“This book places special emphasis…on the differential diagnosis of morphologic findings and their interpretation within the clinical context, and on accurately discriminating between normal and abnormal findings,” says author Dr. Cornelia Schaefer-Prokop, MD, AMC Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

This comprehensive guide also includes pertinent information on the ICU patient following abdominal and thoracic surgery, lung transplantation and Infantile Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Each chapter in this concise reference contains information on classification, imaging and differential diagnosis of the different diseases. Additionally, helpful tables highlight important points and practical recommendations, and summaries of key points appear at the end of each chapter.

“I hope that this book will help radiologists, residents in radiology, and even clinicians to interpret the often difficult and nonspecific findings in children and adults,” says Dr. Schaefer-Prokop.

Because of the special circumstances for this kind of imaging, this concise, yet thorough manual is a must-have for any resident or practicing radiologist who encounters intensive care patients.
