The advent of small, affordable ultrasound machines and the widespread use of PACS systems have made imaging more accessible to anaesthetists and intensivists than ever before. This concise, highly illustrated text discusses the key aspects of radiology, examining all imaging modalities and body regions. Introductory sections review the imaging knowledge required for the FRCA exams and the role of imaging in the Pre-Operative Assessment. These are followed by chapters on each imaging modality and body region, each containing numerous illustrations, practical advice on diagnosis, and many case illustrations. Each modality chapter contains a concise introductory section on the principles of image formation. Containing over 300 scans and illustrations, and written by a multidisciplinary team of radiologists and anaesthetists, Radiology for Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, second edition, is an invaluable aid for all anaesthetists and intensivists.

• Written by both radiologists and anaesthetists; gives a multidisciplinary perspective • Focuses on the areas of immediate relevance to anaesthesia, intensive care and perioperative medicine • Highly illustrated with over 300 high-quality scans from every relevant imaging modality

Reviews

'… it provides examination candidates with an excellent system for interpreting radiological investigations, uses clinical examples to test core knowledge, and discusses the implications of providing an anaesthetic service in radiological departments.' British Journal of Anaesthesia

'Major advantages of this book are the digressions on providing anaesthesia in the digressions on providing anaesthesia in the setting of interventional radiology/magnetic resonance imaging and the detailed review on ultrasound techniques, particularly those associated with interventional procedures. In this respect, although the text appears to cater primarily for students and postgraduate trainees, practising clinicians not already familiar with these techniques may find these sections particularly useful. … a useful addition to a departmental library.' Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
