More than 4,800 illustrations address common head and neck imaging
issues most often faced by radiologists in clinical practice. Head
and Neck Imaging Variants delivers more than 375 cases and 4,800
illustrations to help you determine whether a finding is truly
abnormal or merely a variant and to avoid common imaging pitfalls.
Imaging variants affecting all areas of head and neck imaging are
addressed. Companion cases are included with almost all of the
primary variant cases to help illustrate key differentiating
imaging features. In addition, because interpreting the
postoperative and irradiated neck can be a daunting task, a large
number of these cases are included in this textbook. Since it is
vital to understand the important characteristics of a variant or
disease process in order to interpret imaging accurately, short
discussions about the variant and relevant pathology are included.
Salient features of the more common head and neck surgical
procedures pertinent to image interpretation are also discussed.
Features: valuable to the radiologist who interprets head and neck
imaging as well as to residents and fellows; peer reviewed
literature provided and referenced for the variants as well as for
the companion cases Large, high-resolution images that clearly
annotate the imaging findings about the McGraw- Hill Radiology
Series. This innovative series offers indispensable workstation
reference material for the practicing radiologist. Within this
series is a full range of practical, clinically relevant works
divided into three categories: patterns: organized by modality,
these books provide a pattern-based approach to constructing
practical differential diagnosis; variants: structured by modality
as well as anatomy, these graphic references aid the radiologist in
reducing false-positive rates; cases: classic case presentations
with an emphasis on differential diagnosis and clinical context.
