A practical imaging primer designed specifically for ENTs
Imaging for Otolaryngologists distils the essentials of otolaryngologic imaging into a concise reference that concentrates on key topics that are of immediate interest to otolaryngologists practicing in a modern clinical environment.
Prepared by a renowned otolaryngologist, and reviewed and supplemented by expert radiologists, the book provides a well-rounded perspective. The central focus is on image interpretation, including the disease-specific characteristics, the features necessary for successful diagnosis, and the implications for surgery. Each of the 465 high-quality images is clearly labeled, and where appropriate comparisons are made between CT scans and MR images to show complementary functions and limitations.
All aspects of otolaryngologic imaging are covered, with a particular emphasis on anatomy, common diagnoses, and the choice of imaging modalities. The text is divided into four sections that guide the reader through the petrosal bone, skull base, sinonasal complex, and neck structures. Each section is consistently structured for easy reading: normal anatomy is followed by frequent/common diseases and then less frequent yet still instructive diseases. The presentation of each disease follows a standardized layout with concise explanatory text on how to choose the most appropriate imaging modality, potential differential diagnoses, and points of evaluation.
Imaging for Otolaryngologists helps its readers:
•Evaluate the cross-sectional anatomy in rhinology, otology, and laryngology on plain films, CT scans, and MR images
•Appreciate the contribution and limitations of plain films, CT, and MRI in the management of otolaryngologic diseases
•Select the best imaging modality for chronic, acute, and emergency otolaryngologic conditions
•Understand which radiological appearances to look for in the diagnosis of common and less common otolaryngologic diseases
