Editorial Reviews

Timothy J. Cole
This book provides essential or core material (with emphasis on common thoracic diseases) that radiology residents and practicing radiologists must master for clinical practice. The purpose is to provide a curriculum of the most important requisites in thoracic radiology to benefit residents at any level, fellows in allied clinical fields, and the practicing radiologist. These worthy objectives are satisfied. This is an excellent book for not only the first and second rotations on a chest radiology service, but also to serve as a primary reference for board exam review. It is perfect for radiology residents of all levels, particularly first year and fourth year as a board review. It will be beneficial to fellows in thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine, and critical care. The practicing radiologist will find this to be an excellent review and a primer for new material. I will use this to guide my teaching efforts and as a reference for a core curriculum. It includes information on imaging methods, basic anatomy, cardinal radiographic signs, and information on all commonly encountered thoracic processes. Numerous tables and boxes summarize clinical features, pathology, and radiographic signs as a form of review and reinforcement of important points. Outstanding features include the focus on common thoracic problems, excellent photography, and the table and box format to reinforce important information. There are no shortcomings. This is an outstanding contribution to radiology literature. The information covered is appropriate, accurate, and well presented in a concise fashion. It will be most useful for radiology residents throughout the training program and as a review forboard exams. I plan to institute this book as required reading for first year residents, as it provides a core curriculum of thoracic radiology.
