Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Anyone who has had the opportunity to hear Richard Gunderman lecture would expect only a product of exceptional quality by this erudite radiologist-educator. He delivers the goods! The second edition of Essential Radiology: Clinical Presentation, Pathophysiology, Imaging is an updated, comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of radiology. The book is targeted at medical students and nonradiologist trainees, all of whom will greatly benefit from reading it and will learn how to use radiology effectively in their chosen specialties. [The book] is a complete guide for nonradiologists who want to learn how to integrate radiologic imaging into patient diagnosis and management. Instructors will find this an ideal book for courses; the book can be read cover-to-cover during a month-long resident elective or medical student clerkship. This book is highly recommended.—American Journal of RoentgenologyIdeal for medical students...impressive...the appendix of normal cross-sectional anatomy, with labeled structures and corresponding illustrations, is an exceptional and convenient reference. Image quality is superior and appropriately thorough for an educational tool. It is a challenging yet important task to teach students the role of radiology in clinical medicine. This book serves its purpose of explaining which examinations to order and why they are appropriate. It is appropriately priced at $59.95 and would be a suitable reference for any medical school course. It is recommended especially for anyone considering a career in radiology. The text is aptly written for students yet is sophisticated enough to foster interest in residents and practicing physicians looking to expand their understanding of radiology.—RadiologyThieme's Essential Radiology is a very approachable, basic text that is portable, easy to read, engaging and provides an excellent introduction or review of the practice of Radiology for medical students at all levels, interns, junior radiology residents, and trainees or health care practitioners outside of radiology. Dr. Gunderman is renowned for his teaching skills, and it is evident in the presentation of the materials in this book, which could easily serve as a textbook for any radiology clinical clerkship. ...The more clinical relevance can be shown, the more the reader is going to find it interesting and useful; certainly, this text does a good job of that as well. The chapter organization...being organ and system based...simplifies the reader's approach to finding the material so desired. It makes it a lot easier for a student or teacher to refer to an appropriate chapter or portion thereof when a case comes up clinically or in relation to a lecture. ...Concise, well presented, and decorated with appropriate and legible imaging...I would certainly recommend it...—Academic RadiologyExcellent textbook.. The informative text of each chapter is enriched by numerous diagnostic illustrations and by representative schematic drawings. ..This book, which presents a comprehensive, clear, and informative review of the essential elements of radiology, is strongly recommended to the medical students and, in particular, to the junior residents in radiology.—Clinical ImagingPraise for first edition:The excellence of this book lies in its integration of clinical, pathophysiologic, and imaging uses..The discussions are informative and interesting..Recommended. —American Journal of Roentgenology
