Sophisticated diagnostic imaging has not been available in the developing countries where parasitic infections are most common. Fortunately that is changing, with parasitic infections increasingly imaged in such countries with computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and even positron emission tomography (PET). Through a beautiful collection of images and concise yet informative text, this book provides a useful guide for radiologists and tropical medicine physicians. It is also of use for many physicians who in daily practice will occasionally encounter these diseases in immigrants from and travelers to the developing world, as well as in immunocompromised individuals.
