Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anne M. Kennedy, MB, ChB (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This book is divided into six sections covering respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, musculoskeletal, and central nervous system in a total of 47 chapters. Breast imaging is included in musculoskeletal/soft tissue section. Nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and pediatrics are not treated separately but are discussed in the relevant sections where indicated.
Purpose: The aim is to provide "clear guidance to first and second year residents" in choosing appropriate imaging methods for specific clinical indications.
Audience: Radiology is such a rapidly changing and expanding field that this is a timely publication. In one reasonably sized book the trainee radiologist can find information on appropriate imaging and likely findings in most common diseases and many more unusual conditions. Primarily aimed at junior radiology residents as a "starter" text, it would also be an excellent text for medical students interested in a career in radiology or as a succinct update on newer techniques to the practicing diagnostic radiologist. The 27 contributing authors come from centers of academic radiology in the U.S. and the U.K.
Features: The quality of the illustrations is excellent with good reproductions of good case examples. The majority of the references are from 1993 or earlier, and many are to textbooks rather than articles. This is not inappropriate in an introductory text such as this. The book is visually pleasing and easy to read. Key points in the text are emphasized in italics and useful lists are further highlighted in boxed inserts in the main text. The index is comprehensive and easy to use.
Assessment: This book is a beautifully illustrated, concise summary of current clinical imaging. It more than fulfills its stated aim. The price is reasonable for an introductory text, and the book would be an excellent investment for first-year trainees and medical students with an interest in diagnostic radiology.
