The 4th Edition of this text - popularly known as the "purple book" - returns with a comprehensive, up-to-date look at diagnostic imaging, presenting essential facts in an easy-to-read, bulleted format. More than 1,800 images highlight key diagnostic details and encompass the full range of modalities and specialties. A differential diagnosis section is found at the end of each chapter, and a differential index facilitates rapid reference. The 4th Edition includes coverage of new technologies, emphasizes clinical technical advances in CT and MRI, and examines the emergence of PET. A CD-ROM - new to this edition - features animations that depict the spatial and temporal complexities of MRI.

    Great for board review and note-taking

    This book isn't full of pictures, which is different from most radiology texts. However, it is packed with information in an organized bullet form. It's great for taking additional notes during lectures, quick referral on call or if getting questioned by attendings for differentials. Definitely better for boards and quick reference rather than a primary text.
