Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Yulia Melenevsky, MD (Medical College of Georgia)
Description: This book presents more than 150 cases on common entities and uncommon gastrointestinal diagnoses in radiology.
Purpose: The intent is to present a wide range of entities encountered in GI practice, providing a practically-oriented overview and reinforcing common knowledge of GI conditions.
Audience: This collection of clinically relevant cases would be appropriate for practicing general radiologists or radiologists in training.
Features: Cases are organized by organ system and each one starts with a presentation section, listing classic clinical symptoms. Imaging modalities employed in clinical practice are covered, including CT, ultrasound, and MR, supplemented by radiographs, fluoroscopy, and PET where appropriate. Short relevant differential diagnosis is provided. General comments sections include pertinent background information, pathophysiology, and imaging findings. Each case concludes with a short pearls section, emphasizing a few take-home points.
Assessment: There are other case review books in this subspecialty (including Gastrointestinal Imaging: Case Review, 3rd edition, Low (Elsevier, 2012); Mayo Clinic Gastrointestinal Imaging Review, Johnson and Schmit (CRC Press, 2005), but this well-written, current, practical book, supplemented with more than 975 superb images would be an excellent resource for anyone with an interest in GI radiology.
