Review

Chest (Journal of the American College of Chest Physicians), 01-FEB-04, David S. Mendelson, MD -- "The greatest strength of this book lies in its organization, which consists of an intelligent grouping of radiologic patterns. Hence, in many ways it is a textbook of differential diagnosis that presents diseases with overlapping radiologic patterns and offers 'pearls' with regard to how to distinguish among them. This approach emphasizes how best to order one's differential diagnoses and is the most important attribute of this volume."-Chest (Journal of the American College of Chest Physicians)

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Eagle Vision TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 28, 2005
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Organization of the book is good, breaking the cases into their respective sections. However, that is the best part of this text.

Histories are virtually nondescript and ambiguous and do not lead the reader to the diagnosis. Many images are of low quality (esp. CT) and descriptors in the 'imaging findings' include descriptions of things that were not evident or even included in the provided images. Radiographs are not labeled as being 'prior exam' or temporally sequential which makes using this book as a self assessment suboptimal. Some cases are 'zebras' and the differential diagnoses to many cases are incomplete and lack a systematic approach to simplifying a differential.

Explanations are at times, irrelevant to a radiologist (management of diseases through antibiotics, for example) so it makes the reader wonder who is the target audience. There is no true congruence of similar cases which leads me to believe that different authors did not collaborate very closely.

Better alternatives exist for self assessment for thoracic imaging (e.g. Teaching Atlas of Chest Imaging - exceeds this publication by leaps and bounds). Would not recommend this book to anyone.

This book has a paucity of differential diagnostic lists. Most cases in chest are nonspecific and forming a differential diagnosis is a necessary skill. This book lacks that. Most times, it gives one specific diagnosis for a very nonspecific image and clinical history. Not very useful.

I hope anyone who is planning on buying this book reads this review first. This is book is not worth the money. It is poorly organized. The discussions are nonspecific and at times non sensical. There is a lack of quality images that demonstrate findings. For example, on case 29, Wegener's. The only image provided is a CT scan with interstitial disease. However, the classic findings were of wegener's was only described, but no images! Is interstitial disease even classic for wegener's?!
Also, some chapters try to help by putting information into little boxes to sum up important findings. But these boxes are filled with nonspecific useless findings that will not be helpful in making a diagnosis. For example, Case 131 states has a box with the "key" imaging features of a neurogenic neoplasm. It lists "Large mass, Solid, Calicification Common, occasionally hemorrhagic". What mass doesn't fit into this description?
I read the book. But it was very low yield. I would recommmend the case review series, Reed's Pattern's and Principles, or in fact any other book.
