Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Richard Tupler, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book on abdominal imaging is part of a new series that promises to offer a concise, practical, and instructional approach to commonly encountered imaging questions. It provides guidance on how to accurately interpret imaging examinations based on the authors' extensive experience and how to perform common procedures, including percutaneous drainage and biopsy. The book is essentially divided into three areas: use of different modalities as problem-solving tools with an emphasis on technical issues and exam optimization; the approach to abdominal disease categories including acute abdominal pain, cancer imaging, and inherited/metabolic disorders; and the imaging of specific anatomic regions.
Purpose: The authors' evident purpose is to distill their expertise and approach to clinical abdominal imaging challenges, rather than simply index the imaging appearance of common abdominal problems, in an attempt to help readers accurately identify what they see on the images. The emphasis is on the images, with the text serving to complement the visuals. The book succeeds, presenting an extensive number of clear images and figures accompanied by succinct teaching points and text on common diseases and disorders. The strong graphic approach enables quick learning and review.
Audience: Because it is so well organized, clinically oriented, and easy to read, this is an ideal quick reference for use in clinical practice at the viewing station. Though not explicitly stated, it is obvious that anyone involved in the interpretation of abdominal imaging would find this book valuable. It is suitable for practitioners as well as radiology residents in training, particularly as a quick reference or readable text for general radiologists.
Features: The true strength of this book lies in its figures and tables, which are formatted in a way to provide a user-friendly, easy to read and understand format, essentially in a PowerPoint type approach. The problem-solving approach is accomplished with numerous tables, tips, and pearls that are easy to read and simply laid out. The text complements and reinforces the hundreds of well-done images. In this way, the pearls are clearly elucidated and easily understood. As a bonus, a CD is included with a survival guide to chest and bone findings and an atlas of basic surgical procedures.
Assessment: This is an economical, well-organized, user-friendly instructional tool for those at the intermediate/fellow level. Its problem-solving approach is based on the experience of known experts in the field of abdominal radiology. The formatted images are like having an abdominal imaging expert beside you. As such, this book is appropriate for all levels of training, particularly those looking for a quick review of relevant imaging issues and findings while interpreting cases in clinical practice.
