Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents radiology as a lens through which to study medicine, and highlights with images some of the essential principles one must grasp in order to excel as a physician. Text is arranged largely by anatomic and physiologic systems, not by imaging modality centers. Discussions, where appropriate, are organized around categories of disease in order to provide a theoretical scaffold. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
