This is an extra large book, split into two courses. There is an additional $6.50 shipping charge to cover the weight of the book.
Head and Neck Imaging Cases uses 366 cases and more than 3000 images to familiarize you with imaging findings of common head and neck diseases and conditions encountered in daily practice. Rarer diseases that have typical image findings as well as normal variants and benign conditions that may be mistaken as abnormalities or malignancies are also included. Reflecting real-world practice, CT and MRI are the main modalities illustrated throughout the book. In addition, you will find cases utilizing fluoroscopy, PET-CT, conventional angiogram/interventional radiology, and radiotherapy/radiosurgery.
The book’s easy-to-navigate organization is specifically designed for use at the workstation. The concise, quick-scan text, numerous images, helpful icons, and pearls speed and simplify the learning process.
- Cases involve the temporal bones, skull base, nasal cavity, and paranasal sinuses, orbit, globe, suprahyoid neck, salivary gland, oral cavity and oropharynx, jaw, larynx and hypopharynx, infrahyoid neck, and lymph nodes
- Each case includes presentation, findings, differential diagnosis, boxed pearls, and numerous images
- Icons, a grading system depicting the full spectrum of findings from common to rare and typical to unusual along with consistent chapter organization make this perfect for rapid at-the-bench consultation
Pediatric and Adult Body CT Doses:
This timely article describes the use of a size metric that involved the physical dimensions of the patient (anteroposterior [AP], lateral, AP+lateral, or effective diameter), in combination with scanner output (CTDIvol), to determine size-specific dose estimates (SSDE) from CT scanning. Patient dimension can be determined using physical or electronic tools. Physical devices, such as the calipers that were frequently used in radiography before the routine use of phototiming, may be used to measure patient thickness in the AP or lateral directions. Alternatively, electronic measurement tools can be used to measure physical dimensions from either the CT localizer radiograph or an axial CT image. The conversion factors used tocalculate SSDE from CTDIvol reported in AAPM Report 204 were derived from experimental and Monte Carlo data and normalized to patient size in terms of water- or tissue-equivalent materials.
