Editorial Reviews

Review

[Review of the previous edition] As a result of wide popularity, this excellent textbook reaches its fifth edition. The book appears to have been and to be the 'vademecum' of thousands of medical students, but its content is also devoted to doctors of sciences other than radiology, who use imaging as an essential tool for diagnostic workup of patients. The 25 years' experience of the textbook can clearly be recognized through its 20 chapters covering all fields of diagnostic imaging. The significant advances in imaging technology have brought a great number of new diagnostic images to this edition and new subjects, such as interventional radiology, have been included. Another important new feature of the book is body anatomy, explained either by plain films or by cross-sectional images. All diagnostic problems are presented in a very practical and essential way, tailored to students who will certainly be doctors but may not become radiologists. The reasoning of the author as a non-radiologist but with the radiologist's eyes is the most captivating feature of the textbook. This aspect can only be explained by Squire's and then Novelline's great experience in teaching medical students… The quality of images and captions is excellent, mainly from the teaching point of view. In fact, I was unable to find any misleading image or caption. Although the book is primarily devoted to medical students, its characteristics make it suitable also for first-/second-year residents in radiology. The book is definitely to be recommended to all doctors willing to know more about modern diagnostic imaging. Its size and reasonable price make this volume highly cost-effective. (A. Chiesa European Radiology)

[Review of the previous edition] This is the fifth edition of a text…written as an introduction to radiology for medical students. In 1964 Lucy Frank Squire authored the first edition, which became a standard for education of medical students. Squire recently passed away, but her teaching enthusiasm and spirit are maintained in eloquent fashion by Novelline, her colleague and friend. Without changing its purpose, the text has been rewritten considerably and is nearly doubled in size. New chapters in anatomy and subspecialty areas are included. New to this edition are chapters emphasizing primary-care areas, including women's imaging, men's imaging, pediatric radiology, and AIDS. This edition also contains photographs of patients undergoing exams in radiology suites and discussions of the patients' experiences in the department. (Booklist)

Five stars! Dr. Novelline has done an incredible job, taking an excellent text and improving it. [He] has kept the best parts of the previous editions, adding and updating to create a new incredible educational tool for a reasonable price that will stand the test of time. This text belongs in the personal library of every medical student. (Kathleen A. Murray, M.D., Department of Radiology, University of Utah School of Medicine)

[Review of a previous edition] I recommend this book as the definitive introductory text for medical students in their clinical years and to the course leaders of required or elective undergraduate courses in diagnostic radiology. (Joseph Whitely, M.D. JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association)

Overall, the book does a great job of giving a medical student the kind of radiology education that he should have formally had while in medical school.

On imaging studies you can only read what you know and this book shows you a lot, with great tricks to approaching different imaging modalities.

Format: Hardcover
A great book to get your foot in the door with radiology. The author writes in a simplistic manner making it quite easy to read passively. There are a number of questions posed throughout the book that stimulate critical thinking, and the images in the book are descent. It tends to read very quickly even though it looks rather thick in appearance. Overall, the book does a great job of giving a medical student the kind of radiology education that he should have formally had while in medical school. So by the time that you have read this book, you should feel more confident in your ability to approach a chest x-ray and diagnose a number of common aliments: pneumonia, pneumothorax, atelectasis, etc. Additionally, you should be much more familiar with what kinds of radiographic tests available and how you should use them, even if you may not understand all of the minor nuances of each test. However, let me state very clearly that this book will bring you no where near the level of complexity that a radiologist or a radiology resident should understand the subject matter. Its weakness lies in its simplicity. It does a great job of giving examples and explaining fundamentals, but there are far too few of them to make you proficient in reading an x-ray. The moral here is that you should not anticipate this book turning you into a radiologist, but it does a superb job of fulfilling its purpose: teaching the fundamentals.

I's a really good book for those who don't think about being radiologist, an understanding introductory book and it seems that it was speacially done for medical students.
It arrived in just 1 week, and it is fast if you consider that I'm from Peru, the book arrived in good conditions, so I have no complains.
Definitively what i was looking for. A good purchase.

Although 10 years old, Squire's seems to be the only mid-sized radiology textbook available, striking a balance between not covering enough and being too detailed (e.g. Grainger and Allison) for non-radiologists. I use this with Basic Radiology by Chung (case-based).

Walks you through reading films in a logical, repetitive manner. Is a good basic text for beginners. Glad I bought it.

Great book for medical students, whether in the classroom or the clinic. Great explanations with great pictures. On imaging studies you can only read what you know and this book shows you a lot, with great tricks to approaching different imaging modalities.
Don't think twice about buying it.
