Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sandra L. Helinski, BS, MBA, RT (Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This pocket atlas fills a need that no other book has. It gives technologists an excellent overview of common pathologies and how they are visualized by various MRI pulse sequences and CT images.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is simple: to provide technologists a basic overview of the appearance of neurological and body anatomy and associated pathologies. The book meets its objectives in a visually appealing way by displaying each disease process in concise, easily-absorbed summaries. Especially valuable are the sections for CT and MRI and how the processes appear on MRI pulse sequences and CT imaging.
Audience: This book is written for CT and MRI technologists who wish to be more informed about how various disease processes appear on images. It assists technologists by giving them insight into what the radiologist finds valuable in image quality for proper interpretation. It takes into consideration the fact that technological advances result in the ability to more effectively employ CT and MRI in the diagnosis of disease and has expanded content in this edition.
Features: This is an excellent overview of common and some not so common presentations of disease processes on CT and MRI. It treats neurological and body areas completely. It is an appealing text and makes it easy for readers to get the information they need without getting overwhelmed. Its concise summaries include etiology and epidemiology, as well as signs and symptoms of each disorder, which helps CT and MRI technologists become more effective members of the diagnostic process. Examples of imaging of each disease process make it a book worth keeping next to the technologist's imaging console for comparison in everyday practice.
Assessment: This book meets a need that no others have addressed. While other books concentrate on the technical aspects of the MRI/CT technologies, this one educates technologists in anatomical presentations of disease processes commonly imaged. Presented in a concise, appealing manner, it is an excellent resource.
