Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the third edition:

“This is the third edition of a comprehensive book on bone densitometry. … This compendium is essential for every clinician who routinely provides care and advice to patients who potentially could have bone demineralization. … The author is a greatly respected clinician and researcher in bone densitometry. … This is one of the seminal books on bone densitometry and should be in every medical library of teaching institutions and practitioners caring for and advising patients with potential bone demineralization.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2010)

“Recent advances in technology such as ultrasound and new data have led to a new edition of this practical book on advances in the application of bone densitometry. It has 16 chapters from technical to clinical application aspects. Useful also for pediatric endocrinologists.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 7 (4), June, 2010)

From the Back Cover

Bone densitometry (BD) is an extraordinary clinical tool. It provides a safe, non-invasive window to the skeleton. Through that window, a physician can obtain vital clinical information that enhances diagnosis and improves patient management. Further, much has changed in the last decade to make bone densitometry the especially fascinating field of medicine it is today, incorporating imaging, physics, quantitative analysis, statistics, and computer technology -- all applied in the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis.
No text details the state-of-the-art and value of densitometry better than Bone Densitometry in Clinical Practice: Applications and Interpretation, Third Edition. Written by renowned expert Sydney Lou Bonnick, MD, this edition improves remarkably on her highly regarded previous volumes, with a significant update and expansion of material. New chapters reflect densitometry’s growing applications as well as the evolving needs of the densitometrist. New material on radiation safety and assessment for secondary causes of bone fragility is included, and the text also incorporates material from the recent ISCD Position Development Conferences (PDC’s), both the 4th adult and the 1st pediatric. Moreover, an entire appendix devoted to the PDCs has been added, providing solutions to many unanswered questions concerning bone densitometry applications.
Comprehensive and invaluable, Bone Densitometry in Clinical Practice: Application and Interpretation, Third Edition offers all primary care physicians and specialists the ideal reference for practicing state-of-the-art bone densitometry and caring for patients with, or at risk for, osteoporosis.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a good reference as well as learning tool. It includes many glossy prints of actual bone density scans with descriptions and instructions for interpretation. It has a good section on identifying artifacts and evaluating the adequacy of the scans. There's not much description of secondary causes of osteoporosis but that information can be obtained elsewhere. In all, a good learning and reference book, esp. for physicians.

Format: Hardcover
This is the single most important resourse that any physician performing DEXA scans should have in his or her library. It is a reference used frequently and is a great review of the state of the art of bone density. Two copies are useful, if the first is misplaced. A must read for physicians starting the bone densitometry business.

It certainly has all the information we need. It is VERY DRY, but maybe there just isn't a way to make this exciting.
