About this book


This book provides comprehensive information on Diagnostic Imaging for polytrauma patients. It provides extensive and detailed explanations of the semiotics of traumatic injuries, the correlation with the trauma’s mechanism of action, and the meaning and appearance of prognostic indicators. The book begins with a discussion of the management of polytrauma patients. Particular attention is given to the role of radiology in management, and each chapter includes an assessment of the radiological findings to be used as a clinical decision-making tool. Several typical cases are shown, supplemented by a wealth of images. The book offers a useful tool both for radiologists, who will find in it a valuable guide to correctly diagnosing traumatic injuries, and for clinicians, who will come to better understand the findings of the diagnostic tests performed on their patients
