What is included with this book?
Imaging in Endocrinology will provide endocrinologists and radiologists of all levels with an outstanding diagnostic imaging atlas to aid them in the diagnosis and management of all the major endocrine diseases they are likely to encounter.
In full colour throughout, the 300 high-quality images consist of CT scans, MRI, NMR and histopathology slides, and are arranged by each specific endocrine condition, resulting in a visually outstanding and easily accessible tool that guides the user through exactly what to look out for and provides a practical and extremely useful aid in helping them formulate a diagnosis.
Every major endocrine condition is covered in a specific section, including diseases of the thyroid, pituitary, reproductive and adrenal glands, the pancreas, bone metabolism problems, and the various forms of endocrine cancers. Each disease covered will offer a comparison of the normal findings so as to further assist in diagnosis. An accompanying website contains an online slide-atlas of all the figures in the book, to allow users to download all figures for use in presentations.
Led by Paolo Pozzilli, an internationally-recognised expert in this field, the authors have assembled a wonderful collection of images that will be greatly valued by endocrinologists and radiologists alike, ensuring this is the perfect tool to consult when assessing patients with endocrine disease.
