Overview

Combines anatomy, radiologic images, illustrations, algorithms, case reviews and differntials to help accurately diagnose and effectively manage common and rare neck disorders. More than just an atlas, this practical guide provides complete, up-to-date information so that the reader can reach an appropriate diagnosis in the most cost-effective manner. After determining the location of a head or neck mass, the reader can compare it to images in the text, and work through its differential diagnosis. Helpful images, tables, and case presentatiions help clarify the decison-making process and confirm diagnosis.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Matthew A. Stein, MD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This book is a combination text/atlas of soft-tissue neck radiology, using an anatomic space-oriented approach to lesion localization and differential diagnosis. The first four chapters discuss anatomy, differential diagnoses, and selected clinical considerations; the remaining chapters are case examples of lesions within 11 defined anatomic spaces in the neck as well as selected pediatric cases, barium studies, and scintigraphy.
Purpose: Few other areas in the body are as anatomically complex as the neck from an imaging standpoint or as apt to cause anxiety for the interpreting radiologist. The authors' purpose is to provide an ultra-concise reference and review of site specific differential diagnosis in the neck.
Audience: The book is intended for both practitioners and trainees alike.
Features: The book is a handsomely bound text with numerous high quality labeled photographs and computer designed illustrations. Roughly 140 cases of lesions within defined anatomic spaces, along with site specific differential diagnoses, are provided. Approximately 55 additional cases are provided in pediatrics, barium, and scintigraphy. There is no discussion of the temporal bone or orbits. The color illustrations are striking and well-labeled with the exception of an erratum, which locates the styloid process medial to the carotid space.
Assessment: This book is a well-conceived combination of brevity and content. The compact nature of this book precludes its use as an in-depth reference, but it would have high value to both the practitioner and trainee as a quick reference and/or study review.
