This book provides clear guidance as to which neuroradiological findings in ill or injured patients should be immediately communicated by radiologists and trainees to the emergency room and referring physicians in order to facilitate key decisions and eliminate preventable errors. It offers a practical and illustrative approach that identifies what to look for and how to report it and describes the required follow-up and the most common differential diagnoses of the main critical findings in neuroradiology. The book is distinctive in being written from a “critical findings perspective”, which makes its content more practical and memorable than that of a standard Emergency Neuroradiology textbook. It also illustrates the value of developing algorithmic approaches to report and communicate critical findings based on lists. While the book will appeal to a broad and variable audience, it is especially addressed to radiology training programs and will be a “must read” for residents and fellows in training.
Written from a clinical radiology perspective, the content of this book draws on the personal experience of the authors, all of whom are leading experts in neuroradiology.

Problem Solving in Neuroradiology, by Meng Law, MD, Peter M. Som, MD and Thomas P. Naidich, MD, is your survival guide to solving diagnostic challenges that are particularly problematic in neuroimaging. With a concise, practical, and instructional approach, it helps you apply basic principles of problem solving to imaging of the head and interventional neck, brain, and spine. Inside, you'll find expert guidance on how to accurately read what you see, and how to perform critical techniques including biopsy, percutaneous drainage, and tumor ablation. User-friendly features, such as tables and boxes, tips, pitfalls, and rules of thumb, place today's best practices at your fingertips, including protocols for optimizing the most state-of-the-art imaging modalities. A full-color design, including more than 700 high-quality images, highlights critical elements to enhance your understanding. Apply expert tricks of the trade and protocols for optimizing the most state-of-the-art imaging modalities and their clinical applications used for the brain and spine—with general indications for use and special situations. Make the most efficient use of modern imaging modalities including multidetector CT, PET, advanced MR imaging/MR spectroscopy (MRS), diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and perfusion weighted imaging (PWI). Successfully perform difficult interventional techniques such as biopsies of the spine and interventional angiography—key techniques for more accurately diagnosing cerebral vascular disease, aneurysm, and blood vessel malformations—as well as percutaneous drainage and tumor ablation. Know what to expect. A dedicated section is organized by the clinical scenarios most likely to be encountered in daily practice, such as neurodegenerative disease, vascular disease, and cancer. Avoid common problems that can lead to an incorrect diagnosis. Tables and boxes with tips, pitfalls, and other teaching points show you what to look for, while problem-solving advice helps you accurately identify what you see—especially those images that could suggest several possible diagnoses. See conditions as they appear in practice thanks to an abundance of case examples and specially designed full-color, high-quality images which complement the text and highlight important elements. Quickly find the information you need thanks to a well-organized, user-friendly format with templated headings, detailed illustrations, and at-a-glance tables.

Douglas P. Beall, MD, summarizes the early experiences of established clinicians to create a compendium of everything you need to know during your formative years in radiology. Written for radiology residents and fellows and newly minted radiologists, the Radiology Sourcebook provides vital professional information and sound guidance on such critical issues as resident employment, Board examinations and test results, review courses, fellowships, and CAQs, as well as practical advice on finding a job and what you should know about your professional contract. The book also offers the radiology trainee a proven framework for performing basic procedures in general radiology, understanding the tools and instruments essential to those procedures, obtaining the images needed to make a diagnosis, and reporting the examination once they have been obtained.
The book is organized by anatomical sections that present the primary ER imaging areas of the acute abdomen, pelvis, thorax, neck, head, brain and spine, and osseous structures.

In the emergency and trauma setting, accurate and consistent interpretation of imaging studies are critical to the care of acutely ill and injured patients. Emergency Radiology: Imaging of Acute Pathologies is a comprehensive review of radiological diagnoses commonly encountered in the emergency room by radiologists, residents, and fellows. The book is organized by anatomical sections that present the primary ER imaging areas of the acute abdomen, pelvis, thorax, neck, head, brain and spine, and osseous structures. For each section, the common diagnoses are concisely described and are accompanied by relevant clinical facts and key teaching points that emphasize the importance of radiological interpretation in clinical patient management. The role of modalities such as plain radiography, CT, ultrasound, MR, and nuclear medicine imaging in managing emergency conditions is highlighted.
Staff filling this role help contact clinical staff with critical results and coordinates incoming calls to the appropriate radiology personnel. This sort of aid does not just make communication more efficient.

Few graduating residents are ready for the demands of subspecialty neuroradiology. This is in part because there remain gaps in the educational literature prior to fellowship. Subspecialty practice requires familiarity with exams and procedures that residents rarely encounter. Neuroimaging is frequently both high complexity and high acuity. The beginning of fellowship can therefore present the steepest and highest stakes learning curve encountered during the whole of radiology training. The goal of this text is to provide a primer for this challenging year. Search patterns, procedure checklists, recommended resources, and tips for efficiency are presented in as accessible a manner as possible. This book is everything I wish I had known and everything I would pass on to each new trainee. I’m sure it’ll be a useful tool on your path to becoming an excellent neuroradiologist and physician.
I found reading this book to be a joy...Frankly, this is a book not just for the resident or fellow, but one that will give any academic faculty member a positive learning experience, just like the one that I had!
