An accurate preoperative analysis has the potential to shorten the duration of operations and improve the surgical design as well as the dissection procedures.
This document, titled “Imaging for Plastic Surgery,” outlines the procedures, applications, and potential benefits of using medical imaging technology in plastic and reconstructive surgery. This groundbreaking text presents the most recent findings from cutting-edge research on the evolution of imaging modalities and:
- Demonstrates the added value that imaging can bring to a variety of clinical settings
- Recognizes the benefits and drawbacks of each of the imaging modalities that are currently available
- Imaging principles of the face, neck, head, breast, trunk, and extremities are discussed.
- Provides a hands-on introduction to the imaging modalities that are applicable to preoperative planning.
Imaging for Plastic Surgery is an essential imaging resource for surgeons, radiologists, and other professionals working in patient care. This resource includes contributions from world-class experts in the field of plastic surgery.
“A riveting excursion through the most cutting-edge and recent imaging techniques that identify pertinent underlying structures of human anatomy; essential for the planning and execution of successful surgery.” Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Doctor of Medicine (Bridgeport Hospital)
“To the best of my knowledge, and after conducting a broad online search, I was unable to locate any other textbooks that so comprehensively tackle the subject of medical imaging as it relates to plastic surgery in general, and most definitely none that include it in such breadth and in such detail as this one does. I found it to be very enlightening, and I believe that it adequately fills an apparent gap in the plastic surgery library so that it can be used by consultants as well as trainees. The PMFA Journal, volume 3, issue 3, Patrick Addison, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
“Consultants and registrars alike will find this ebook to be an outstanding reference text in order to learn more about the radiographic tests we order and to ensure that we are up to date with the new technologies that are currently being presented by our colleagues. The advancement of technology is accelerating at a rapid rate, and recent imaging techniques have given us the ability to acquire a significantly improved preoperative assessment for the purpose of better planning the operative procedure. This text elucidates the functions of these more recent tests and [defines] which [tests] are the most appropriate to be requested for an individual.” Peninsula Health; Patricia Terrill; Frankston; Victoria; Australia
