Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James Milburn, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This outstanding title in the Diagnostic Imaging series on head and neck imaging comes from one of the most highly regarded head and neck radiology educators. This edition updates the 2004 edition with 120 new diagnoses, 300 new color graphics, and 200 more pages.
Purpose: The purpose is to contribute to the process of demystifying the field of head and neck imaging by preparing a comprehensive, single-volume book that would become a favorite resource for head and neck imagers. This clearly written, well-organized, and beautifully illustrated book will fulfill this objective in many departments around the world.
Audience: It is appropriate for radiology residents, neuroradiology fellows, and staff physicians. At our institution, both editions of this book are considered the most useful head and neck references during readout sessions. Many colleagues have found it perfect for review before neuroradiology CAQ exams. Once again, Ric Harnsberger and his colleagues are successful in creating a book that enables readers to comprehend this complex material relatively quickly.
Features: Despite being a single volume, this book is quite comprehensive. The color illustrations are exceptional and the image quality is outstanding. References are current, updated to within weeks of publication. The logical organization with clear headings and color coded sections makes the book easy to navigate. Like other book in this series, much of the information is presented in outline format with bullet points. Each chapter begins with a boxed list of key facts for quick review. This second edition adds 23 new prose introductions at the beginning of each of the sections to guide readers through the relevant anatomy and imaging approach. Also new are individual sections on squamous cell carcinoma and pediatric and syndromic diseases.
Assessment: The significant improvements to this second edition make it a worthwhile purchase even for those who own the 2004 version. Although there are other excellent comprehensive multivolume books on head and neck imaging that also deserve strong consideration, I consider this one to be the most useful reading room companion due to its organization, clarity, and outstanding illustrations. It is highly recommended for the reading room in any neuroradiology or head and neck surgery department.
