From The CriticsReviewer: Todd E Layman, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This excellent comprehensive review of diagnostic radiology is presented in an outline format with limited pictures. The previous edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: This book, probably one of the most comprehensive of its kind, fills an important niche at a workstation with limited space.
Audience: It is written as a reference guide best used by a practitioner with some degree of experience. The long list of differential diagnoses is most helpful as a memory jogger for the experienced radiologist. Wolfgang Dahnert is a leading authority in the field.
Features: The book covers the field of radiology from head to toe with comprehensive differential diagnoses and detailed review of specific disease entities at the end of each chapter. The book excels as a source for discussion of the most pertinent topics encountered by a general radiologist. One would be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive list of relevant differential diagnoses.
Assessment: This is really in a category by itself for those times when one seeks a comprehensive list of differential diagnoses and information on specific disease entities. However, the lack of pictures and the format of the book, with differential diagnosis first and detailed descriptions in the back, make it less efficient and educational when compared to the Diagnostic Imaging series.
