Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Kirsten K Cestaro, BA, MD(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description:This is an image and table rich musculoskeletal radiology text organized by both radiographic appearance and anatomic location. The previous edition was published in 1997.
Purpose:The purpose is to provide a well illustrated reference and study guide for physicians versed in musculoskeletal radiology. It covers conventional radiography (no CT or MRI). This book meets the authors' objectives and is an appreciated addition to the field.
Audience:It is intended for physicians familiar with musculoskeletal radiology, specifically, practicing radiologists/fellows and radiology residents preparing for boards. In addition, orthopedists and rheumatologists may find this a useful reference. The authors are credible authorities and the material is presented in a succinct manner.
Features:The image quality is outstanding and numerous helpful drawings pictorially demonstrate specific radiologic features of various diseases. The bulk of the text is in table format, arranged as differential diagnoses and highlighting the radiographic characteristics and pertinent clinical data. The subject is covered in an efficient manner. The organization of the chapters is such that radiographic appearance is emphasized in the first half of the text, and the remainder is organized by anatomic location. This presents some overlap/duplication, but does not detract from its quality.
Assessment:This is a high quality book, with outstanding images and innumerable useful tables. It compares favorably with other books in the field, and the publication of the revised second edition is worthwhile. It provides an important image-rich reference for radiologists and clinicians alike.
