Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elizabeth Brice, MD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This book, like the others in the Secrets series, provides an introduction to radiology using a question and answer format.
Purpose: The authors' purpose is to distill the enormous amount of information in diagnostic and clinical radiology and pass down hundreds of the most valuable pearls.
Audience: The introduction describes radiology with applications in all medical specialties. Certain chapters of this book may indeed have some use for health care providers in specialties which heavily utilize imaging (i.e., bowel obstruction for medicine and surgical interns, brain neoplasms for neurosurgery interns), while the book as a whole will be most useful for medical students in radiology clerkships and first year radiology residents.
Features: The radiographic images are abundant (approximately one per page) and of adequate quality. The question and answer format provides a rapid method of acquiring information.
Assessment: This book provides an enjoyable and accurate introduction to radiology. Unfortunately the scope of radiology, and thus the number of questions that may be asked at the view box, is larger than a single book can encompass.
