Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is a yearly update of the common clinical diagnoses encountered in medicine.
Purpose: This is a very concise representation of the information and as a memory jogger, it is very useful, but it lacks depth and figures or photomicrographs.
Audience: This is great reference for every level of clinician and for the layperson who is somewhat familiar with medical terminology.
Features: The information is listed in a bulleted format. Each topic includes the basics of description and terminology, a short segment on epidemiology, how to make the diagnosis, treatment options, and ongoing follow-up care. For the clinician there are ICD-9 codes listed, making the billing questions easier.
Assessment: While very little changes yearly when using this type of book, it is still well worth the cost and is a valuable addition to every medical library.
