Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a high-quality review of the range of conditions encountered in gastrointestinal radiology. It should prove useful for general radiologists in practice as a guide and a reference, and should also be useful for trainees as a teaching guide and for board exam preparation. It has been updated from the previous edition of 2008 to reflect changes in practice."- Bennett Greenspan, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia) 5 star Doody Rating!
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia)
Description: The book uses a case format with questions and answers to present and discuss the core knowledge of gastrointestinal radiology. The book presents many of the basic radiology signs that practicing radiologists need to know, using plain films, fluoroscopy, and radiographic contrast material, as well as cross-sectional imaging.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the skills and techniques that are needed for the modern practice of radiology, and to provide a guide for trainees as they prepare for board certification. These skills and techniques include the use of fluoroscopy with contrast materials for evaluation of many of the conditions encountered in gastrointestinal radiology. The book meets the objectives admirably.
Audience: It is written for practicing radiologists as well as for trainees in radiology. It is far more useful for general radiologists than subspecialists in gastrointestinal radiology.
Features: The book presents a wide range of conditions that would be encountered in the practice of gastrointestinal radiology. The 60 initial cases are fairly easy, followed by a collection of 90 cases of moderate difficulty, and 50 more challenging cases of greater difficulty. The quality of the images is excellent. The book presents a comprehensive review of fluoroscopic methods, in addition to plain films and CT. The format of case review, with images useful to form a differential diagnosis, then questions to guide readers is quite useful and simulates the oral board examination experience, with the added value of providing the correct answer and immediate feedback. The cases are also cross-referenced to Gastrointestinal Imaging: The Requisites, 3rd edition, Halpert (Elsevier, 2006)
Assessment: This is a high-quality review of the range of conditions encountered in gastrointestinal radiology. It should prove useful for general radiologists in practice as a guide and a reference, and should also be useful for trainees as a teaching guide and for board exam preparation. It has been updated from the previous edition of 2008 to reflect changes in practice.
