Medical students preparing for a career in clinical practice must become familiar with a wide range of diagnostic imaging techniques and image-guided interventions. They must learn to identify the indications for radiological examination and recognize the role each procedure plays in the workup, diagnosis, and therapeutic management of patients. That is why Squire’s Fundamentals of Radiology has been such an important, long-standing resource for medical students, physicians, and other professionals at all stages of their careers. It teaches essential topics in the radiology curriculum and features hundreds of illustrative cases clinicians can turn to again and again in practice.
In this long-awaited seventh edition, Robert Novelline provides more than 600 new high-resolution images representing the current breadth of radiological procedures: conventional x-rays, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography, radioisotope scanning, positron emission tomography (PET), and molecular imaging. This edition’s expanded coverage addresses dual energy CT, breast tomosynthesis, PET-MR scanning, and tractography brain imaging, along with best practices for managing patient experiences during and after examination. All new images were produced at a major teaching hospital using state-of-the-art imaging technologies.
Squire’s Fundamentals of Radiology is designed to be read cover to cover by students, with concepts, principles, and methods progressing in a logical, cumulative manner. It also serves as an invaluable tool for teachers and an indispensable reference for seasoned practitioners. Written by a radiologist who has trained thousands of medical students and residents, this textbook is the clear choice for excelling in the general practice of radiology.
Robert Novelline is a living legend in radiology education. I cannot think of anyone who is more of an authority in the education of medical students in radiology than Dr. Novelline. His dedication to Squire’s Fundamentals of Radiology is clear yet again.
This textbook reflects the remarkable technical progress in the field of radiology. The seventh edition of Squire’s Fundamentals of Radiology is a thoroughly up-to-date introduction to medical imaging. The systematic and thoughtful presentation of topics reflects Professor Novelline’s lifetime of experience in the practice, research, and teaching of radiology.
Squire’s Fundamentals of Radiology has been a staple textbook for nearly 20 years. While retaining its signature pragmatic approach, the expanded seventh edition teaches the central role of imaging and its intelligent use in an increasingly complex medical environment.
Dr. Novelline has deftly updated Squire’s Fundamentals of Radiology to promote an appreciation for how medical imaging impacts the optimization of twenty-first-century clinical care. The seventh edition of this quintessential text continues to provide top-notch preparation to trainees—no medical student should graduate without a copy.
