Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Andrew Sonin, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book addresses the diagnostic imaging of cancer in its various forms throughout the body, organized by an organ-systems approach.
Purpose: The authors' stated purpose is to serve as a working guideline for oncological diagnosis and staging. However, because of the many different types of diseases discussed and the large number of authors, there is little cohesiveness in style or content.
Audience: The targeted audience is primarily the practicing radiologist, and secondarily the oncologist.
Features: The book contains an appropriate assortment of high-quality radiographic images, most of which were generated using current technology. References are up-to-date in some sections, less so in others. The decision tables provided do not seem to provide additional information and are sometimes difficult to follow. Algorithms given often differ from those familiar to medical practice in the U.S., in large part the result of the significant contribution by European authors.
Assessment: This attractively presented book suffers from a lack of focus or cohesiveness. Although certain chapters are well written and referenced, others are less so. Specifically, several of the chapters written by European authors are written in language and style that American readers may find difficult to follow. Although it may serve well as a supplemental volume for specialists in oncology, it will not likely prove useful for the typical radiology library.
