Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Steven W. Fitzgerald, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book is the seventh in a series of ten similar atlases on organ system MR. It is in a teaching file format, containing cases illustrating the application of MRI to the chest, abdomen, and pelvis.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to provide practicing radiologists with a broad exposure to the current status of body MR and to illustrate key findings in common disorders.
Audience: General radiologists, radiology residents, and radiology fellows may find this an interesting supplement to their reading in body MRI.
Features: This book contains 100 cases in a teaching file atlas format. For each case, a brief review of findings, a brief description, and several references are provided. Although the amount of illustrations is adequate, many are small and lack sufficient annotation. The index and table of contents make it very easy to locate cases.
Assessment: The cases are contributed by individuals with considerable experience in body MRI. Unfortunately, the format prevents in-depth discussion of important points such as examination technique. Also, although the scope is broad, many of the areas are only touched on lightly. This book serves to supplement but not replace standard body MR texts.
