More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jie Mao, MD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: From approximately 500 journals, about a quarter of a million papers published during the year 2000 were reviewed to select the five percent for publication in this Year Book. A concise summary of each of the articles along with the editor's comment/opinion on the take-home message, quality, importance, and debatable issues associated with each article is provided.
Purpose: Every year, it is an extensive task for a radiologist to read all the articles relevant to his/her subspecialty from merely three to five journals. It would be impossible if he/she were to read every relevant article from 500 journals. The purpose of the Year Book is to survey these journals for the radiologist, select those that the editors deem significant in their clinical application and in the field's advances, and offer the reader take-home messages and an editor's review of each. In today's fast-paced, vastly advancing field of radiology, this is an admirable goal, and this book does a fantastic job accomplishing it.
Audience: The book itself does not specify an audience, perhaps because the editors know its wide applicability. Whether you're a resident, fellow, academic, or private practice radiologist, or a clinician desiring to be up-to-date with the radiologic aspect of your field, this is an excellent source for the best and the latest. The editors, who are well published and represented in a variety of journals, lectures, and review courses themselves, are among the best of their subspecialties, and certainly offer credible authority for selection and editorialization of the articles.
Features: Articles are selected from seven clinical radiologic subspecialties: thoracic, breast, musculoskeletal, pediatric, vascular and interventional, abdomen, and neuroradiology imaging. Of course, what is covered in each subspecialty is somewhat publication dependent. However, the editors choose specific topics that they deem "musts" for coverage, such as BOOP and TB for chest imaging, and acute ischemic stroke for neuroimaging. In each section, one gets a taste for both the bread and butter radiology such as infection and trauma, and exotic topics such as new pathologic discoveries and technical advances of a specific entity. The summaries of the articles offer a quick and easy understanding of the contents, and the editors' comments summarize the take-home messages (in case one didn't fully appreciate them) and put things into perspective. Overall, the book is very well written and easily absorbed. Interestingly, there's an entire section devoted to economics, education, and quality of today's radiology practice and teachings, which is refreshening. The only shortcoming of the book is the print quality of the plain films, and sometimes even CT images, in certain sections, particular chest imaging. Otherwise, the tables, charts, and diagrams are very helpful.
Assessment: The Year Book is very well written and an excellent resource for a quick and satisfying review of important advances, concepts, and discoveries that have taken place in the past year. It is suitable for anyone in any stage of their career; but residents should not substitute it for textbooks and teaching atlases (although it is tempting). Its completion is an extensive task for those involved, but a worthwhile endeavor to pursue every year.
