Book review by C. Catalano
R. Ribes, A. Luna, PR Ros (Eds.), Springer, 2008
This book is mainly addressed to medical students and young residents beginning training in radiology. It is difficult nowadays to find a radiological textbook that covers all the diagnostic imaging disciplines in a concise and easy way. It is even more difficult to find an updated book that shows the applications of new diagnostic imaging techniques that are part of the radiological workup. This is mainly due to the rapid evolution of radiology, with the introduction of new imaging modalities in the diagnostic pathway. On the other hand, the current trend in radiology is a fragmentation of the discipline in many sub-specialties. However, students and residents need to look at radiology and to learn diagnostic imaging as a whole discipline.
