Overview

This book illustrates 100 classic radiologic signs with radiograms alongside illustrative photographs for memory aids and clarification. Accompanying text explains the history and meaning of the descriptive name. The entry for "dromedary hump," for example, shows a typical x-ray of this condition with a photograph of a dromedary camel that clearly shows how the name fits the sign. Dr. Mulligan says, "In honor of the 100th anniversary of Roentgen's discovery, this book illustrates and elaborates on the history of 100 of the more classic radiologic signs. If we are to use these terms with full understanding, we must have the ability to visualize the object depicted by the term, imagine its radiographic appearance, and transfer that picture to the radiographic image before us. This book is intended to help practitioners and students of our art accomplish that task."

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathleen A. Murray, MD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This is a unique atlas of radiographic eponyms. The radiographic feature, the historical derivation, and an illustration or photograph of the article from which the eponym is derived is shown.
Purpose: The purpose of this text is to illustrate 100 classic signs that are used with varying frequency in radiology. The concomitant demonstration of the article and radiographic lends itself to a unique teaching tool for the visual art of radiology, which is well done in this atlas.
Audience: This is designed for radiology residents and radiologists. It is also a good reference for medical students. The author has extensively researched the eponyms, some of which are frequently used with little understanding by residents.
Features: This is an entertaining text. Even practicing radiologists, especially those are involved in teaching students, residents, and nonradiology personnel will enjoy the presentation. The number of illustrations and references are good. The print quality is suboptimal with small fine print. The radiographs are the weak aspect of the text, with many demonstrating poor reproduction but the described finding can be seen. The historical perspectives are succinct and well done. There is an index of the sign or eponym as well as a second index of the attributable authors of these signs.
Assessment: This atlas is a unique teaching tool that offers an entertaining way to view many radiographic signs. Some signs were described many years ago and the article from which the eponym is derived may not be a common article for today's residents. The side-by-side illustration of the eponym, however, offers a good visual aid to help remember the finding when seen again. Although the quality of the publication is somewhat lacking in the printing of the text and radiographic illustrations, this is a great learning tool, best utilized in the reference library of a teaching institution.
