Book Description

Imaging performed before an operation is gaining more and more approval as a tool for preoperative planning in plastic and reconstructive surgery. 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

“… gathers all of the necessary information on the added value that each imaging modality can offer in the majority of clinical situations that are encountered in plastic and reconstructive surgery…. The ebook begins with an introduction to imaging modalities that can be utilized during the preoperative planning of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Subsequent sections of the ebook compile the fundamentals of imaging for the reconstruction of the face, head and neck, abdomen, breast, and upper and lower extremities, respectively. Imaging for Plastic Surgery has the potential to involve not only plastic surgeons but also other medical professionals who play an active role in the provision of inpatient care. It is very possible that many residents in radiology and plastic surgery will use this as their go-to reference book. Inside, they will find all the information they need to know about the benefits that imaging can bring to their next operation. … Imaging for Plastic Surgery goes beyond the conventional use of imaging in the medical field and focuses on a novel clinical application of non-invasive imaging in the field of surgery. It is without a doubt that an accurate preoperative assessment, based on imaging, of the various surgical strategies and procedures available will result in better outcomes for patients and will maximize available resources. This ebook highlights the benefits and drawbacks of each imaging modality that is currently available and contains essential information regarding what each modality can offer in terms of imaging. In addition, the majority of important concepts regarding imaging and surgical procedures are completely covered in this book. When considering the potential benefits of using imaging techniques for preoperative planning of nearly every surgical procedure in the field of reconstructive and plastic surgery, the readers of Imaging for Plastic Surgery will find a clear path to follow.
