Diagnostic Imaging of Infections and Inflammatory Diseases
A Multidisciplinary Approach
by Alberto Signore (Editor), Anna Maria Quintero (Editor)
Paperback Book (352 Pages)
September 2013
Innovative and multidisciplinary, Diagnostic Imaging of Infections and Inflammatory Diseases thoroughly and systematically presents the state-or-the-art in the diagnostic uses of radiologic imaging and nuclear medicine in the diagnosis and management of infectious and inflammatory diseases. Compiling wide-ranging topics, including inflammatory bowel diseases, orthopaedic infections, tuberculosis, HIV, vascular prosthesis infection, FUO, endocarditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and neurological infections, each chapter concludes with a carefully developed algorithmic flowchart for the management of patients with inflammation and infection. This is a tremendously timely and useful reference for a broad audience of physicians.
