Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charles C Matthews, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This multivolume reference on diagnostic imaging of diseases in the abdomen and pelvis is accompanied by a website that makes the text, figures, images, etc. available online after customer registration and activation.
Purpose: The objectives are threefold - to provide a comprehensive text, a quick review using key fact boxes, summary tables, algorithms, etc., and an integrated knowledge base with Internet access. This is a great approach in today's fast-paced, online world and the authors achieve their goal extremely well. I checked the online material and found it well organized and easy to access, and the images can be viewed full size.
Audience: The book is intended for two groups in diagnostic radiology: residents in training and busy practitioners. Surgeons also may benefit, using this as a library resource for imaging correlation. It is written by more than 130 experts from around the world.
Features: This is a tour de force of diagnostic imaging of abdominal diseases. The material is succinctly organized into 136 chapters so that radiologists can quickly review a single topic during a busy workday. The book reviews imaging techniques, then covers pathology on an organ-by-organ basis. Each chapter discusses the clinical presentation, pathology, and imaging findings. Key facts and findings are summarized in fact boxes, tables, and algorithms. The diagnostic images are plentiful and high quality and include radiographic, CT, MRI, PET, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine modalities. Each chapter concludes with suggested readings and references for more in-depth reading. The online version has hyperlinks for these.
Assessment: This is an outstanding example of Elsevier's Expert Consult titles. It is a one-stop shop for rapid review of any topic in abdominal pathology. My copy will definitely be in the reading room for ready reference for me and my residents. The corresponding online version allows readers to review the material from virtually anywhere. The organization and format bring the key facts and features to the forefront with numerous fact boxes and tables. The text is well written, providing a better discussion of the material than the bullet-point style format of a handbook. The editors have delivered a fantastic and comprehensive textbook for the modern radiologist.
From the Publisher
"In their preface editors Sahani and Samir (both with Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital) admit to some initial reservations when the publisher approached them for this project (basically, they thought it might be redundant); they describe their enlistment in the project when they understood its combination of online platform and precisely conceived text; and, finally, they confess to having fun and learning a great deal while shaping the work of more 130 contributors. Arrangement is in two volumes, beginning with imaging techniques and then proceeding to anatomically focused sections. Each of 136 chapters has been prepared according to an appropriate template for technique, anatomy, or pathology; numerous boxed summaries and tables offer quick reference to important topics; and suggested readings and references are included. Approximately 2,500 excellent quality images illustrate the text. The online platform (titled Imaging Consult), providing electronic access to the contents, is included with purchase."
