Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brant D. Wommack, BS, MD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is an excellent review, although definitely not exhaustive, of body CT. It is a very quick read and time efficient, making it a great book for residents to read on their first body rotation.
Purpose: With the third edition, the authors condensed some of the older text into tables and lists, while expanding newer topics with the latest information. They accomplish their goals well.
Audience: The book seems to be targeted to early radiology residents, and the authors are very credible.
Features: The book covers CT of the entire body (chest, abdomen/pelvis, and briefly the musculoskeletal system). A very broad subject is summarized well, with the abdomen/pelvis section probably more effectively than the chest sections. The images are excellent.
Assessment: Compared with the second edition, this third edition effectively incorporates the latest information on topics such as high resolution chest CT, while summarizing the older information. This makes it an updated, but efficient, easy to read resource great for a resident to read during a body CT rotation.
Maryellyn Gilfeather
This introductory CT text concisely covers the basic principles of chest, abdomen, and musculoskeletal CT. It is not intended to replace larger and more complete CT texts. Instead, it approaches the subject matter by teaching the reader how to perform and interpret CT exams. This is a second edition, with the previous edition published in 1991. The purpose of this book is to describe the techniques of performing and interpreting chest, abdomen, and musculoskeletal CT scans. The book covers all the practical points necessary to gain a solid understanding of CT, and it is done in a manageable, readable text. This book is a very useful addition to the several larger CT texts currently available. This book is written for radiology residents and medical students who are learning body CT. It is also a useful review for practicing radiologists who have updated their CT equipment, as it covers the latest CT techniques and lists protocols for spiral CT scanning. The book is divided into three sections, with three different authors covering chest, abdomen, and musculoskeletal CT. All three authors are highly regarded as experts in their fields. The illustrations and radiographs in the book are of very high quality, and are included to describe both normal anatomy and common disease entities. The suggested reading lists at the end of each chapter provide the reader with up-to-date references to obtain more detailed information, if desired. Tables and lists are included to describe protocols. The overall appearance of the book is excellent, as it is a small and manageable appealing text. This is a perfect book for radiology residents and medical students who are learning how to performand interpret body CT scans. Since the first edition was printed in 1991, there have been several advances in CT technology, the most important being spiral/helical CT. The book includes protocols for conventional CT and updated protocols for spiral/helical CT. It also includes discussions of other new CT topics, such as high resolution lung CT, three dimensional CT, and CT angiography. Even with this additional updated subject matter, the authors have managed to keep this text simple and easy to read. It should be considered a required text for those first learning body CT.
