Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Albert A. Nemcek, Jr., MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book covers gray scale, color flow, and Doppler sonography of the abdomen in an atlas format. As such, the emphasis is on images rather than detailed text. Subjects covered by the text include the peritoneal cavity and gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder and biliary tree, pancreas, kidneys, adrenal glands, spleen, abdominal aorta and inferior vena cava, and retroperitoneum.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide multiple, high-quality examples of sonographic findings in conditions encountered in the usual practice of abdominal imaging. There is additional emphasis on the use of color flow sonography as an adjunct to routine sonography, on the benefits and weaknesses of sonography relative to other imaging methods, and on correlative images when they help illustrate or expand on the ultrasound examination.
Audience: The audience would properly include anyone interested in abdominal sonography, regardless of training level.
Features: The book includes more than 1,000 figures, the majority of which (about 80%) are sonograms. Of these, about one fifth are color flow images. The remainder of the figures include correlative imaging studies (predominantly, but not exclusively, other cross-sectional images) and photographs of gross and microscopic pathology. The illustrations are of excellent quality; virtually all the sonograms appear to be from examinations performed with state-of-the-art equipment. The text is concise yet informative, managing to avoid the problem of becoming too limited to be worth reading.
Assessment: This is a lavishly and beautifully illustrated atlas of abdominal sonography that succeeds admirably as a collection of superb images. By virtue of its format, it is not as comprehensive as other current references with much more text. However, it would make an excellent companion to such references. Those interested in abdominal sonography will benefit simply from absorbing its visual information.

Booknews
A volume intended for practicing physicians, residents, and sonographers interested in abdominal sonography, emphasizing high quality images and atlas format. Rather than describe and review all pathologic conditions, findings are illustrated for those conditions encountered in the usual practice of abdominal imaging. Color flow sonography is heavily emphasized; an effort is made to correlate sonograms with other imaging modalities, especially CT and MRI, when germane. The concise text presents current clinical and imaging information, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of sonography, along with practical suggestions. Annotation c.
