You may purchase this book on Amazon.com.

This is an excellent guide to the interpretation of radiography and ultrasonography, illustrating normal anatomy and comparisons with common abnormalities seen in practice. Of course, the book does not replace CE in this field, but it is a perfect companion.

The book (5th Ed) had been seriously updated, as imaging has taken a giant step in recent years.

There are more than 500 radiographs, CT scans, ultrasonographs, and a section in the center of the book containing color Doppler sonograms. The book is divided into the various body systems and the cases shown represent presentations you may see in practice.

There are images of fractures, foreign bodies, arthritis, soft tissue pathology, lymph glands, calcifications, cardiac issues, angiocardiography, and comparative views using radiographs and ultrasound.

The Table of Contents is not as detailed as it could be, but the Index makes up for that. If you are looking for an ultrasound view of a specific type, for instance, it may not be in the TOC, but will likely be found in the Index. The films of dental issues are numerous and well described.

Reading films is not an easy task, and attending lectures or presentations on interpretation may be essential in order to become well-versed.

This book is recommended for your library, but I would also have the Silverman/Tell book on hand as well. And, be sure to sign up for some radiographic CE at your next conference.
