Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Trystain D. Johnson, M.D.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: In keeping with the Diagnostic Imaging series, this book offers a quick but rather complete outline format broken into individual diagnoses covering most aspects of spine imaging.
Purpose: The series purposefully excludes long sentences and elaborate prose in lieu of outlined, high-yield points of information. This makes for a quick reference that ably covers many topics. Dr. Ross certainly excels using this format to cover important spine topics.
Audience: The book is usable by radiologists at any level of training. The format allows quick referencing to assist practicing radiologists in a busy daily work environment. The important subject matter is easy to digest for those just beginning. The outline format also lends itself well to residents' review and board preparation. Having written on spine imaging before, Dr. Ross certainly provides a credible voice.
Features: The most common spine diagnoses are given individual attention. The diagnoses are grouped under color-coded disease category sections for even easier reference. Imaging features and numerous high-quality images are supplemented by ample coverage of general terms, differential diagnoses, pathologic and surgical correlates, and clinical issues. Key facts boxes on each topic provide even quicker information. Entries dealing with anatomy and nomenclature are convenient and avoid the need for two books or a computer. Not only is the list of pertinent differential diagnoses included with each topic, but a few bullets are provided for discriminating information. Particularly nice are the thumbnail images of top differential diagnoses. However, because the book is driven by specific diagnoses, some "topic splitting" occurs that may not sit well with "lumpers."
Assessment: The book nicely conveys a lot of pertinent information in a condensed format. It is more than a handbook but less than a total reference book. If one gets more from reading prose, this format may not be appealing. However, if a quick but fairly complete reference with imaging examples, including differential diagnoses, is needed, this book serves that purpose well.
From the Publisher
"A happy compaction of material (maybe twice as much per diagnosis compared with traditional prose textbooks)..." -SciTech Book News, March 2005

"This textbook is an essential addition to the library of any healthcare provider (from students still in training to the seasoned clinician)...

"This imaging textbook contains a well-placed plethora of high-quality radiographic images. While some of the images may be small, they nontheless clearly characterize the depicted disorder. These images are further supplemented by beautifully-detailed illustrations that complement the radiography. Taken together, this combination provides readers with the radiographic hallmarks for accurately diagnosing the spectrum of spinal disorders."—J. of Neurosurgery, Aug. 2005

"Diagnostic Imaging: Brain, Diagnostic Imaging: Spine, and Diagnostic Imaging: Head & Neck...present the reader with a remarkable set of beautifully illustrated and highly educational textbooks.

"[T]he color illustrations alone are worth the price of admission, not only because they convey the essentials of the diagnosis, but also because they spectacularly correlate with the CT and MR images...Buy this set of three books, recommend them to all those in neurosciences, make sure your departmental library has every one of the volumes, and refer to them often."- AJNR Aug. 2005

    Comprehensive and Concise

    This text along with the others in the Diagnostic Imaging Series, namely Osborn's DI of Brain, is a comprehensive yet concise reference text in its presentation of spinal disorders and their appearance on radiographic studies. It is a must for any training professional in the fields of radiology, neurology and neurosurgery, and a strong reference for the library for those already trained in the above fields. The images are abundant, and the artwork is detailed. It has further in depth bullets of pathophysiology of disease for those wishing to go a bit further, but also realizes the need to save time with its "Key Fact" highlighted boxes on each disease entity. The only thing that would improve the text's usefulness would be the inclusion of a CD for use of images for powerpoint and teaching conferences.
