Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One in the series "The Library of Future Medicine," this book provides information about a variety of medical imaging techniques and the technology involved in these procedures. Additionally, the book includes a brief history of medical imaging, as well as separate chapters on plain radiography, tomography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and the future of medical imaging. A three-page glossary provides definitions of many of the more difficult words used in the text. Nearly every double-page spread includes an interesting photograph with an explanatory caption. Rather oddly, one photograph in the chapter on ultrasound is of capsule endoscopy, not an ultrasound procedure, and not explained anywhere in the text. It is difficult to be sure about the intended audience of this book, however. Although its large print and slender size would tend to imply a mid- to upper-elementary audience, the reading level, especially in the explanations of the technical aspects of imaging, is often high, and might be challenging for even some high school students. At times the book assumes a level of understanding that readers may not yet have. An example would be the explanation of MRI technology that says that the MRI is "hydrogen imaging," which is effective because the human body is 98 percent water. Not all readers may be aware that hydrogen is part of water, or that the symbol H stands for hydrogen. The book includes a link to the publisher's Web page, which is supposed to include further links to Internet sites of interest. However, it was not yet functional when this review was written. Two adult scientific journals, which would be difficult reading for any child, are the only items included in asection called "For More Information." In spite of the various problems, this book may be a useful addition to collections that have a high demand for information about medical procedures. 2003, The Rosen Publishing Group,

School Library Journal
Gr 6-8-These titles are interesting in concept but not totally successful in their execution. The Giddenses deal almost entirely with current techniques in surgery and devote only seven pages to future possibilities, which is puzzling. Moe's title is a thorough but plodding overview of medical imaging, using too much undefined technical terminology for the book's potential audience. Both titles are illustrated in vivid colors that might appeal to the younger crowd, but are probably more distracting than attracting to middle schoolers. Limited bibliographies, indexes, and suggestions for further exploration are included.-Mary R. Hofmann, Rivera Middle School, Merced, CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
