Reviews

"In their preface editors Sahani and Samir (both with Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital) admit to some initial reservations when the publisher approached them for this project (basically, they thought it might be redundant); they describe their enlistment in the project when they understood its combination of online platform and precisely conceived text; and, finally, they confess to having fun and learning a great deal while shaping the work of more 130 contributors. Arrangement is in two volumes, beginning with imaging techniques and then proceeding to anatomically focused sections. Each of 136 chapters has been prepared according to an appropriate template for technique, anatomy, or pathology; numerous boxed summaries and tables offer quick reference to important topics; and suggested readings and references are included. Approximately 2,500 excellent quality images illustrate the text. The online platform (titled </Imaging Consult/>), providing electronic access to the contents, is included with purchase."

- Book News, Inc.

"The book is intended for two groups in diagnostic radiology: residents in training and busy practitioners. Surgeons also may benefit, using this as a library resource for imaging correlation. It is a one-stop shop for rapid review of any topic in abdominal pathology. My copy will definitely be in the reading room for ready reference for me and my residents. The editors have delivered a fantastic and comprehensive textbook for the modern radiologist."
