This best-selling radiology primer clearly explains the basic principles and clinical applications of plain film, CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine. Written in straightforward, accessible language and assuming no prior knowledge of radiology, it provides an ideal introduction to the field. The new edition reflects the all of the momentous recent changes in diagnostic imaging technology and applications, including the diagnosis of abdominal, pelvic, and retroperitoneal conditions. It also presents new coverage of the evaluation of headache, hypertension, and low back pain. Over 550 outstanding, beautifully reproduced digital images demonstrate every essential concept.

There is a wealth of information presented in a way that should be understandable to medical students and residents. There is more clinical information than is seen in other radiologic texts aimed at nonradiologists. This book is a reasonable purchase for nonradiologists looking for a readable overview of radiology. ~ reviewed by James M. Messmer, MD.
