Market / Audience Primary Market: Radiologic Technologists (7,500+ new rad techs per year in the USA); book would be recommended in RadTech programs, and required when there is a CT/MRI Pathology course or specialty. This would also appeal to students prepping for the ARRT exam. Junior Residents and Medical Students (approx. 152,000 each year) Primary Care Providers (MDs, PAs, NPs) Physical Therapists About the Book CT & MRI Pathology: Second Edition is a portable reference of more than 200 common pathologies seen in CT and on MRI. It concisely reviews the pathology, etiology, signs and symptoms, imaging characteristics, treatment, and prognosis for each disease/disorder and includes crisp, high-quality images to accompany every discussion. New to the second edition are an additional 90 disease topics - bringing the total to 200, a new design, and 8 pages of color images. There have been a number of technological changes in this field in the past five years since the last edition published. We can now see images with thinner slices, multiple axis, and a transition away from nuclear medicine as CT and MRI technology has been enhanced. As an example, five years ago, 16-slice CT scans were the norm; now it's 64-slice - this is a higher resolution and allows for much better treatment and diagnosis. The new edition will include state of the art images for each pathology covered.
