Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aytekin Oto, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book reviews the ultrasound (US) findings of thyroid diseases and briefly describes US-guided procedures involving the thyroid.
Purpose: The purpose is to review the US findings of thyroid diseases while providing an extensive literature review (including tables of relevant literature) for each subject. Even though the book does not contain much new information, the information it does provide is presented in an organized fashion with a lot of relevant literature.
Audience: Although the authors do not specify a target audience, the book is appropriate for radiologists (practicing or in training), endocrinologists, or internists with a special interest in thyroid diseases. The authors obviously have significant experience in this area, but they are not well-known or well-published authorities in the field and the book does not provide academic credentials. This information may be helpful for readers.
Features: The book is relatively easy to read and follow. Each chapter references a lot of recent literature and has plenty of pictures. However, there are some grammatical errors and incorrect terms. CT and MR figures are not good quality. Appropriate windowing was not selected and the thyroid is not zoomed and difficult to see. US pictures are very dark in some cases and image features are not well displayed. Figure captions are very short and do not describe the image findings well. In some pictures, the patients can be recognized. These shortcomings decrease the value and utility of the figures. Tables summarizing literature findings are very difficult to follow. The benefit to readers of sample reports is very limited, and they can be omitted.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive review of US findings of thyroid diseases with an extensive review of current literature, although with significant shortcomings.
