Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'… a comprehensive, abundantly illustrated, up-to-date review of normal radiologic anatomy … a helpful guide to radiology residents and a useful reference book for both residents and practising radiologists.' American Journal of Radiology

Review of the first edition: 'This book is first class in achieving its aim and although primarily intended for trainees in radiology, will be of value to many surgical trainees.' British Journal of Surgery

3 Stars from Doody

This is a comprehensive textbook of radiological anatomy, with an emphasis on cross sectional modalities. The stated purpose is to describe radiological anatomy and promote understanding of anatomy by means of imaging. This book is primarily intended for radiology trainees preparing for qualifying exams. It would be suited for a wide audience, including medical students, technologists, and practitioners. The book is multiauthored, with all contributors based in the U.K. All the contributors have significant expertise in their areas. All areas of radiological anatomy and all modalities are covered in this text. The radiological images are predominately cross-sectional (CT, and to a lesser extent MRI and ultrasound). In addition, multiple line drawings are used to good effect. There is less emphasis on plain film than often seen in textbooks of this type. The editors attempt to cover a large amount of material in a relatively limited space. The scope of this book is impressive; however, there are some notable omissions, and the level of detail may not be adequate for the needs of more advanced practitioners. For example, in the heart chapter, there is very little attention given to cardiac MRI. In the chest chapter, regional nodal stations are illustrated with a single line drawing without correlation with CT or MRI. Overall the quality of the images is high, although some of the MRI images appear to have been performed on older scanners. This textbook is notable for the wide range of coverage. As such, it is an excellent basic book that would be most useful for medical students and junior radiology trainees. Given the relatively superficial coverage of many areas, it would beless useful for practitioners needing a detailed reference.
