This book, first of its kind and written by leading experts, offers a comprehensive review of imaging of the whole body based on correlating the radiologic findings with gross and microscopic pathology . Taking advantage of all imaging modalities, the authors give detailed descriptions of radiologic presentations with pathologic correlation, of a broad spectrum of diseases from most organ systems, including the nervous system, head and neck, chest, gastrointestinal and urogenital system, musculoskeletal system and breast. The book helps the clinician to apply the principles of radiologic-pathologic correlation to the interpretation of radiologic studies and therefore to better understand the clinical and pathologic implications of the radiologic appearance. Furthermore this radiologic-pathologic correlation allows to refine the differential diagnosis in key disease entities of the main organ systems. The book is richly illustrated with high-resolution images, many of them in color, and will serve as a unique source of information for radiologists, gastroenterologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, pathologists, gynecologists, urologists and oncologists.
