Hans Riddervold


The rise of malpractice litigation has placed pressure on the radiologist, ultimately responsible for the detection of any pathology evident on the film. In most cases, it is easy to recognize an abnormality, however, it is somewhat harder to identify pathology out of the primary field of view and to locate subtle abnormalities in the margins and dark areas of films. Many such "misses" are preventable, either by improving radiological technique or by learning to sharpen powers of observation. This book attempts to acheive the latter.By providing a collection of potential errors and oversights, this text encourages the reader to identify easily missed fractures and "corner clues", using all possible information on the film. Presenting the author's most challenging and instructive cases in atlas style, each chapter tests the radiologist's expertise by addressing a particular organ system. Whether a seasoned expert or a novice, this is an essential learning experience that will considerably refine the radiologist's diagnostic acumen.Hans Riddervold is the author of 'Easily Missed Fractures and Corner Signs in Radiology', published 1991 under ISBN 9780879935023 and ISBN 0879935022.
