Overview

This best-selling radiology primer clearly explains the basic principles and clinical applications of plain film, CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine. Written in straightforward, accessible language and assuming no prior knowledge of radiology, it provides an ideal introduction to the field. The new edition reflects the all of the momentous recent changes in diagnostic imaging technology and applications, including the diagnosis of abdominal, pelvic, and retroperitoneal conditions. It also presents new coverage of the evaluation of headache, hypertension, and low back pain. Over 550 outstanding, beautifully reproduced digital images demonstrate every essential concept.

• Describes the most common pathologic entities, plus rarer life-threatening conditions.

• Uses more than 550 high-quality digital images to capture a wide range of normal imaging findings, common variants, and pathologic findings.

• Written by a single masterful author who is skilled at explaining complex topics in an easy-to-understand manner.

• Discusses recent advances in the diagnostic imaging of abdominal, pelvic, and retroperitoneal conditions.

• Offers an increased emphasis on CT scanning, including helical CT.

• Covers the latest developments in nuclear medicine, especially PET and the new hybrid CT/PET scanners.

• Explores the radiologic evaluation of headache, hypertension, low back pain, and other challenging conditions.

• Incorporates new material on screening for colon and lung cancer.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stephen M Fines, MD (University of Colorado School of Medicine)
Description: This is a basic radiology textbook to be used by both medical students and physicians who want an introduction to the field. The first edition was published in 1996.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the author, is to provide basic understanding of radiology to both medical students and physicians in a nonradiologic field. Although this book would not be very helpful to radiologists, it does provide basic understanding of the field and is useful for both students and family practitioners, internists, etc.
Audience: According to the author, this book is written for students and practitioners in a non-radiologic field.
Features: The book covers basic aspects of radiologic physics, anatomy, x-ray, CT, and MRI. At less than 400 pages, the book is an easy read for those interested. Most of the basics are covered, but there is no mention of nuclear medicine, which is an important part of radiology.
Assessment: This book does what it states. It provides a basic overview of the field for students and physicians in nonradiologic fields. It is a good beginner book for anyone interested in the field. However, for those in the field of radiology (residents and attendings), the book would be of limited value. Due to all of the advances in the field of radiology, a new edition every 8-10 years would be well received.
