Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Charles C Matthews, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a collection of illustrative cases covering a wide variety of pathology in chest disease. Each case typically includes three key images and a discussion of the findings.
Purpose: The authors state the purpose is to "provide an overview of chest imaging based on key examples." This format is most useful for residents in training or practicing physicians who want to quickly review the imaging findings and clinical features for a particular disease. The book achieves its goal very well.
Audience: The book is "aimed at radiology residents, pulmonary physicians and general radiologists with an interest in chest imaging." The authors are recognized experts in the field of thoracic imaging.
Features: Many cases show diseases of the lung, heart and great vessels, mediastinum, pleura, and chest wall. Each case is covered in two pages - usually with text on the left and images on the right. Cases include findings, discussion of characteristic clinical features and radiologic findings, differential diagnosis, discussion, and suggested readings from current literature. The discussions are most valuable and emphasize critical features helpful in making the correct diagnosis. The key images are high quality with annotation and legends. The book concludes with an index of cases and a thorough topic index. I would prefer a list of cases in the table of contents. The complete text with illustrations is also available online, and the key images look even better at the web site and can be copied and pasted to a presentation program. The search tool works quite well. The suggested readings provide active links to online articles, a really quick method to read further in depth.
Assessment: This is an outstanding teaching file collection of 200 cases across a wide spectrum of diseases of the chest. I enjoyed going through the key images and testing myself for the findings and diagnosis. I will highly recommend that my residents read the book during their chest rotation. It also will be a valuable resource in the reading room providing succinct summary and key images. The online version enhances the value by providing portability as well as links to the suggested readings.
