Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David Kirsch, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This primer functions as a learning tool for residents and fellows preparing for the boards as well as a reference for practicing physicians.
Purpose: "It provides a needed curriculum and/or framework for the vast array of topics in radiology and serves as an essential part of resident learning tools as well as an important basis for their education. "
Audience: The target audience includes residents and fellows who may (or may not) be preparing for the boards. It also serves as tool for practicing radiologists who want a quick reference for daily practice or as part of their recertification.
Features: The book is not a substitute for more detailed investigations of disease processes or pathophysiology, and that is not the intent. It serves as a template and as an organizer for additional learning. This is the greatest benefit of the book as it enables readers to get the basics of a topic and jump to a more detailed book when warranted. This latest edition reflects the advances in technology in areas such as MRI and PET and provides access to valuable online tools.
Assessment: This primer is unique in the way it serves as a radiology curriculum and an excellent tool for self learning. Other books that have attempted this often get bogged down trying to cover too many details or subjects. This one does a good job of keeping the information manageable and concise. The updates and the online tools make this edition a worthy upgrade.

"The information in each chapter is presented in a concise and logical way with bullet points and tables that give the reader a quick grasp of the clinically relevant facts about any particular condition.The simple accompanying sketches are useful, as most radiologists will readily agree that a picture is worth a thousand words...Overall, this book is a handy book for learning or looking facts and will be useful for registrars for the FRCR part IIa and IIb."
