It is written for practicing physicians, but will be useful to any medical personnel or medical student as well.This does a remarkable job of examining and summarizing the most recent diagnostic and therapeutic options for a very difficult yet common complaint. Its strength is in the discussion of best use and limitations of the testing modalities used to diagnose abdominal pain. It is more concise than many other similar texts, and covers the information extremely well. 4 Stars!--Doody`s Review Service Table of contents Contributors Preface Chapter 1: Mechanisms of Abdominal Pain, David M.

In its all-inclusive overview of abdominal pain-related conditions such as urinary tract infection and diverticulitis, the book includes only those insights that are most useful for busy ER physicians. This essential, high-yield approach carries over to a chapter format that features quick-hit bulleted lists of key clinical facts, along with a step-by-step review of management guidelines. You'll also find an abundance of clinically relevant CT and ultrasound scans, plus criteria for their interpretation.

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Nov 2016, 2016. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - This book provides up-to-date, comprehensive, and accurate information on the diagnostic imaging of nontraumatic abdominal emergencies in pediatric patients. All of the most common neonatal and pediatric emergencies are covered, with separate discussion of diseases that occur more commonly in newborns and those typically encountered later in childhood. For each condition, the main signs observed using the various imaging techniques - X-ray, Ultrasonography, Computed Tomography, and Magnetic Resonance - are described and illustrated with the aid of a wealth of images. Attention is drawn to those features of particular relevance to differential diagnosis, and the prognostic value of diagnostic imaging is also explained. The final section addresses topics of special interest, including the acute onset of abdominal neoplasms, the problems associated with radiation protection in the emergency setting, and medicolegal issues and informed content. The book will be of value for all radiologists working in emergency settings in which pediatric patients (newborn and children accessing the emergency department) are regularly examined. 400 pp. Englisch.
