Innovative and multidisciplinary, Diagnostic Imaging of Infections and Inflammatory Diseases thoroughly and systematically presents the state-or-the-art in the diagnostic uses of radiologic imaging and nuclear medicine in the diagnosis and management of infectious and inflammatory diseases. Compiling wide-ranging topics, including inflammatory bowel diseases, orthopaedic infections, tuberculosis, HIV, vascular prosthesis infection, FUO, endocarditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and neurological infections, each chapter concludes with a carefully developed algorithmic flowchart for the management of patients with inflammation and infection. This is a tremendously timely and useful reference for a broad audience of physicians.
