Radiology of Blunt Trauma of the Chest Summary

Radiology of Blunt Trauma of the Chest by P. Schnyder

This volume exhaustively reviews all aspects of the radiology of blunt chest trauma, as well as the epidemiology, etiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, and pathology of such trauma. The interest of the book lies above all in the richness of its illustrations, resulting from an image data file spanning more than 10 years. Most radiological patterns described in the literature as well as some new ones are comprehensively discussed and displayed. Moreover, findings of conventional radiology, CT, and sometimes ultrasonography and angiography are displayed simultaneously, allowing comparison between the different imaging modalities. An introductory chapter describes the prevalence, risk factors, and biomechanics of blunt chest trauma. Blunt traumas of each anatomical compartment are then systematically reviewed according to a constant, concise, and structured approach. The book should be a valuable tool both for radiologists and for intensivists and other physicians involved in trauma care.
