Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'contains many excellent radiologic images with positive findings that illustrate common surgical diseases'

'covers a wide range of systems and diseases'

-Doodys Publishers' Club, Friday, May 9, 2014

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Catherine E. Lewis, M.D.(UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine)
Description: Designed as a primer on radiologic imaging for general surgery residents, this book is small enough to fit in a white coat pocket, contains many excellent examples of radiologic imaging with positive findings, and presents the information in a brief bullet-point format to allow quick reference on a wide range of common general surgical diseases.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a simple guide to diagnosing common surgical diseases based on radiologic imaging. Although the authors state that the book should also help residents decide on the diagnostic imaging study of choice for each disease, the book rarely provides that information.
Audience: Intended for general surgery residents, the book seems most appropriate for third or fourth year medical students and interns, as it provides only a superficial overview of each disease and its associated imaging, and a lot of the information is very basic. The book was written by residents and faculty from departments of both surgery and radiology, a nice collaboration.
Features: The book contains many excellent radiologic images with positive findings that illustrate common surgical diseases. It covers a wide range of systems and diseases, but is by no means all inclusive. It is unlikely to be of benefit to surgical residents struggling to read a CT scan, ultrasound, or plain film, but would be a nice help for students or interns first starting out in general surgery.
Assessment: Overall, the book is well organized and provides a nice superficial overview for a variety of common surgical diseases. The radiologic images are all of high quality and serve as nice examples for positive findings. The book would likely be most useful to students or interns looking for a primer on imaging for surgical disease.
