Overview

The Oxford American Handbook of Radiology is a concise, image-rich guide to radiology for non-radiologists who wish to improve their understanding and utilization of imaging as well as their interpretative skills. An "Essentials" section covers topics such as imaging modalities, contrast, risks of imaging, imaging the pregnant patient and imaging algorithms for common presenting conditions. The remaining chapters are organized to facilitate easy review for students on either radiology or clinical clerkships such as OBGYN, medicine or surgery. Chapters include: chest imaging, abdominal imaging, neurological imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, women's imaging, interventional radiology, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, nuclear medicine and pediatrics. A pattern-based approach is used, allowing readers to develop the underlying concepts of image interpretation and then apply it to individual cases. All chapters include 'Don't Miss' boxes to highlight crucial findings. Over 340 high quality annotated images and line drawings are included both in the text and on the included CD. Designed for quick reference on the wards and in the clinics, this structured and easily readable guide fits in a lab coat pocket.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS (Georgia Regents University)
Description: This overview of radiology provides essential information on many aspects of the field in a format useful for rapid review and reference.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide guidance in ordering appropriate imaging studies, understanding key radiology modalities and concepts, understanding how imaging can contribute to patient management, learning basic principles of image interpretation, and understanding safety issues.
Audience: It is intended for medical students, interns, and medical and surgical residents as a guide to the appropriate use of various imaging studies. The book also may be useful for first-year radiology trainees.
Features: A chapter with essential information begins the book, followed by a combination of organ-based and modality-based chapters. The book presents information regarding the key imaging modalities, how imaging contributes to effective patient management, and appropriate use of these imaging studies. The abbreviated format lends itself to quick reference and review for efficient access to the information. The book could use a few more references.
Assessment: This is an excellent overview of radiology for medical students, interns, and nonradiology residents, and should help them in understanding when to use these studies and how to use the information gained by the studies. It can serve as a valuable reference.

    This is an excellent resource for learners at various levels. I see it as an ideal text for entry-level residents to utilize for pre-rotation prep and as a quick reference as needed. It concisely covers a broad scope of topics for each section, including but not limited to general image acquisition techniques, search patterns, report organization, diagnostic differential and management issues. Included images are representative and thoughtfully labeled/captioned, but not overwhelming. There is more advanced materials than some students may need, but it is organized clearly and in a manner that allows the reader to easily get what they need out of the section of interest. Would also be a good resource for clinicians outside of radiology that frequently utilize imaging in their practice.

    If you need a book to bring concepts in imaging together concisely yet thoroughly, this text is what you are looking for!
