    Editorial Reviews

    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.
    From the Publisher

    The text clearly reaches its target audience--someone rather new to the field, but practicing a dedicated musculoskeletal academic center--in an apropos fashion. Every radiologist can generate a laundry list of entities; however, in the table format of this text, one can easily decide which of the entities remain a diagnostic possibility and which do not. The entities are easy to evaluate with the table listing the radiographic findings and then with a comment section often focusing on pertinent clinical information or differential criteria. The vast number of pictures truly facilitates in bringing the large spectrum of entities that are discussed from the world of abstraction and esotericism into reality. This book has a clear goal in mind and accomplishes it with great fervor. For the practicing radiologist, it gives an exhaustive list to expand one's differential diagnosis while, at the same time, helping to rapidly narrow a differential diagnosis into a useful number of entities. ..For someone preparing for examinations, this textbook would be an immeasurable tool in conveying that one has not just memorized a laundry list but has truly grasped the manifestations of multiple entities that frequently confound and perplex.--Clinical ImagingA well-written, organized work providing useful information to physical therapists, physicians, and other health care providers with experience in musculoskeletal radiology. The authors present detailed information regarding a wide range of bone and joint disorders and meet their goal as the book serves as an excellent reference for its intended audience of radiologists.--Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical TherapyAn image and table-rich musculoskeletal radiology text...intended for the physician...specifically...for [board preparation]...useful reference...high quality, with outstanding images and innumerable useful tables...provides an important image-rich reference for radiologists and clinicians alike.--Doody's Book Reviews
