Never before has essential diagnostic guidance been so quick and convenient to access! In conjunction with Amirsys Inc., W.B. Saunders is pleased to present a new family of pocket-sized diagnostic imaging resources unlike any other clinical references available. These titles are being offered both in paperback format, and as software for personal digital assistants (PDAs). Each volume explores the 100 most important diagnoses in a particular radiologic specialty. And, each volume features the authorship of a prominent expert in that specific area. Consistent, bulleted guidelines and crisply reproduced images make it remarkably easy to instantly confirm or rule out a diagnosis. The result is an on-the-go source for the information radiologists need to interpret images with confidence.
