Editorial Reviews

Lee F. Rogers
This is the second edition of an introductory text devoted to skeletal radiology that was well received by diagnostic radiology residents in its first edition. It is written in a casual, individualistic style by a noted authority in the field. The work is expanded and brought up-to-date by the addition of 65 pages devoted to MRI, comprising 25% of the text. The book certainly fulfills its intended purpose as an introductory text. The book is targeted for radiology residents and interested medical students. The text is short, compact, and written in a casual, personal style. It is well illustrated. The major imaging findings in all important skeletal diseases are depicted. All imaging techniques are included; plain films, bone scans, CT, and MRI. The second edition will likely be even more highly regarded than the first edition because of the addition of a significant section devoted to MRI. This, when coupled with the low cost, will make it attractive to both diagnostic radiology residents and medical students. The book should do well.
