Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Lee F. Rogers, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: 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.
Purpose: The book certainly fulfills its intended purpose as an introductory text.
Audience: The book is targeted for radiology residents and interested medical students.
Features: 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.
Assessment: 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.
