More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William G. Spies, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This hardcover monograph describes the instrumentation, techniques, limitations, quality control procedures, and clinical applications of dual energy x-ray absorptiometry for the measurement of bone mineral density.
Purpose: The authors' purpose is to introduce the reader in detail to the rationale and method of performance of this technique in the clinical evaluation of patients with osteoporosis.
Audience: It is intended to be read by physicians involved in the performance in interpretation of these studies, by physicians referring patients for bone mineral analysis, and by scientists and technologists involved in the performance of this procedure. In my opinion, the heavy emphasis on the instrumentation and mathematical underpinnings of this technique will tend to make this book less interesting to technologists and referring clinicians than to nuclear medicine physicians/radiologists and medical physicists.
Features: The book contains numerous black-and-white illustrations, consisting of bone mineral density scans, radiographs, and line drawings, as well as a number of tables. Both older and more recent references are included and are adequate in number. The overall presentation and organization are good.
Assessment: This book provides a comprehensive description of the technique, pitfalls, and quality control issues related to dual energy x-ray absorptiometry studies. Relative drawbacks to this text include the less-detailed coverage of the clinical background of osteoporosis, the comparison of this technique with other modalities for bone mineral density measurement, and the utility of this modality in various clinical settings. Although it would have been preferable to include more material on these topics, this information is generally available from other reference sources. I believe that this book would be a useful addition to most medical libraries and medical bookstores.
