100 circumstances in Radiology provides a hundred radiological anomalies generally noticeable by means of scientific scholars and junior medical professionals at the ward, in outpatient clinics or within the emergency division. A succinct precis of the patient's historical past, exam and preliminary investigations, together with imaging images, is through questions about the prognosis and administration of every case. the reply features a designated dialogue of every subject, with extra representation the place applicable, delivering an important revision relief in addition to a pragmatic advisor for college kids and junior medical professionals.

High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner appear to be worlds aside, however the underlying actual rules are an analogous, and it is smart to regard them jointly. Chemists and clinicians who use magnetic resonance have a lot to benefit approximately each one other's specialties in the event that they are to make the simplest use of magnetic resonance expertise.

33 Although not its primary function, CT can also allow further detection and assessment of both related and unrelated pathology. As well as primary staging, PET scanning can be used to assess response to treatment. Despite being an effective tool, its major limitations are related to cost (both of the scanner and in generating the isotope) and lesion size: small metastases (<1 cm) may not accumulate detectable levels of FDG–F18. KEY POINTS • A patient with a chest radiograph suspicious for lung cancer should be referred for a chest CT scan to characterize the lesion further.
MR is less sensitive for cortical bone and a cervical spine radiograph for comparison is also helpful. The patient’s symptoms are caused by the disc prolapse (demonstrated on MR) rather than thoracic outlet syndrome due to the cervical ribs. 2 (a) Fluoroscopic arteriogram. The arrow shows displacement but no compression of the right subclavian artery. (b) T2-weighted sagittal MR image showing degenerative changes at C5/6 with disc protrusion into the canal (arrow) also resulting in nerve root compression.
Vertebroplasty: Guiding the infusion of inert cement into a collapsed spinal vertebra can provide stability in cases of osteoporotic or metastatic collapse. KEY POINTS • Ultrasound is excellent for the assessment of the liver and has a high sensitivity for detecting intrahepatic biliary duct dilatation. • Biliary obstruction can be circumvented by stent insertion either via ERCP or PTC. • Interventional radiology is a subspeciality of radiology that uses image guidance to perform minimally invasive techniques.
