Description

Here is the first book in decades devoted specifically to ICU radiology, from an expert author in a major US clinical setting. It covers common, everyday problems seen in each ICU, including pneumonias, heart failure, and barotraumas, along with common technical problems that lead to interpretation errors and inappropriate interventions. This resource also features an excellent, concise presentation of the topic, with a separate section containing real-life case studies. The text is accompanied by a free CD-ROM with the case studies and radiographic images.
