Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kenneth J McCabe, BS, BA, MD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This PDA software on temporal bone pathology is the latest in a series of Pocket Radiologist titles.
Purpose: The purpose is to cover the top 100 radiologic diagnoses of temporal bone pathology using a portable format. The presentation of this material using a portable format is useful for quick reference of each diagnosis. The format for each diagnosis includes two diagrams, key facts, imaging findings, differential diagnosis, pathologic correlation facts, clinical presentation, and a list of references. The product meets the objectives of a quick reference for a PDA.
Audience: The authors list practicing physicians and residents as the audience. Practicing physicians that would benefit the most from this software would include radiologists and fellows in head and neck imaging, neuroradiology, and some in musculoskeletal radiology. Residents would also benefit from this software for quick reference while involved in neuroradiology. Neurologists may also benefit from this software. The software meets the needs of the intended audience. Dr. Harnsberger and the other coauthors have written several books about the temporal bone and head and neck imaging.
Features: The software includes the top 100 radiologic diagnosis of temporal bone pathology. The individual diagnosis can be listed by location, with another two options for trauma and the facial nerve. The format for each diagnosis includes two diagrams, pertinent facts, imaging findings, differential diagnosis with discriminating facts, pathologic correlation facts, clinical presentation, and a list of references. The two included diagrams include a pop-up legend for each diagram, which is useful and separates this software reference from other titles. Potential areas for improvement include a search feature and could include all of the titles in the series installed on the PDA, the ability to hide the graffiti area of the PDA, which is not used and could be used for the legend created for the diagrams. The legend will cover the inferior portion of the diagram when activated, which can at times cover the findings described. The customer service could be improved. I sent an email regarding a question which was not completely covered on the website FAQ page, and no answer was returned. This may be a crucial fault for those not well versed in using electronic devices. A 1-800 number is included in the package and on the Web site for assistance, but I did not try this option.
Assessment: The newest title in the Pocket Radiologist series is a welcome addition to the popular line of PDA software. However, some minor improvements would increase the overall ease of use and productivity of the title and series alike.
