Classic Papers in Modern Diagnostic Radiology

Overview

The book reproduces the classic papers that form the foundation of modern diagnostic and interventional radiology. Radiology has changed almost beyond recognition in the past 40 years and is now central to the practice of modern medicine. We now have non-invasive diagnosis and minimally invasive imaging-guided therapy. Whilst we are all aware of the great names in radiology they are often only names, and the papers are famous but may be difficult to locate. This book brings together in a single and convenient ...

Overview

The book reproduces the classic papers that form the foundation of modern diagnostic and interventional radiology. Radiology has changed almost beyond recognition in the past 40 years and is now central to the practice of modern medicine. We now have non-invasive diagnosis and minimally invasive imaging-guided therapy. Whilst we are all aware of the great names in radiology they are often only names, and the papers are famous but may be difficult to locate. This book brings together in a single and convenient volume the classics of our modern practice of radiology. The choice is obviously personal, but we feel that these papers have stood the test of time. Each paper is reproduced in its original format, with the original references and illustrations, and its significance is discussed. The papers are accompanied by biographical sketches of the key pioneers, and each relevant section includes an introductory essay on the history of the imaging modality discussed.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Seth Jay Kligerman, MD, MS (University of Colorado School of Medicine)
Description: This book helps to chart the evolution of radiology by providing a selection of classical papers that have altered the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a historical perspective of the field of radiology by looking at groundbreaking accomplishments over the past century. The book is not needed in terms of advancing the field, but it is always useful to know where the field has come from in order to better know where it is going.
Audience: According to the author, the book is meant for anyone who has an interest in the history of the field, and I would have to agree.
Features: The book presents a selection of historical papers that have been instrumental in the development of the field of modern radiology. It provides insight into the past so we can appreciate not only the humble beginnings of the field, but also those individuals who helped transform radiology into the medical necessity that it is today. However, it does not inlcude any papers on nuclear medicine.
Assessment: This is an interesting read for those who want to know the history of our field. It does not provide any new information, but allows us to understand the field's beginnings and those that made the modern field of radiology possible. This is the only book of its kind.
