BeschreibungThis book offers a comprehensive review from head to toe on the last development in the management and the treatment of acute and life-threatening conditions. Well-defined diagnostic strategies are of primordial importance in order to ensure optimal and fast global care of the acutely ill or multitrauma patient who enters the emergency department of the hospital. Written by leading experts in the field, this book will help the clinician to understand the clinical problems and to select the methodological and technical options that will ensure prompt and effective response and correct interpretation of the clinical findings. This book is richly illustrated and will serve as unique source of information for radiologists and other specialists including neuroradiologists, surgeons, cardiologists, angiologists and gastroenteologists.

From the reviews:
" ... This book successfully meets its goal of providing an up-to-date reference that addresses emergency imaging and interventions. It is a useful companion to similar previously published texts in emergency radiology but adds the useful facet of including interventional approaches to a spectrum of emergent conditions ... This book would be well positioned as a ready reference in both academic and private practice reading rooms and would benefit emergency medicine physicians as well. "
David D. Pellei, MD; Radiology: Volume 247: Number 1 - April 2008)
"A new text has emerged that deals with the extensive field of emergency radiology. ' the book is informative, up to date, and enjoyable. ' The subject matter is well presented and would be useful to emergency department physicians and radiology residents rotating through a trauma center or emergency radiology department. Those radiologists whose practice does not include the performance of interventional procedures would also benefit from the information in this volume." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 29, March, 2008)
