About this book


This book summarizes the radiological tools available for diagnosing traumatized patients. One of the major benefits of the book is the logical chain between mechanics of trauma and the resulting injuries. It reviews widely accepted trauma classifications, explains relevant examination methods, and summarizes the typical trauma patterns that can be expected with each imaging modality. The authors give decision pathways based on their experience as well as on recent scientific results. The book thus builds a bridge between the disciplines cooperating in hospitals in the treatment of acutely injured patients.
