Reviews

From the reviews:

“The content of the book is divided into 9 parts … . Each chapter is enriched by very precise, well reproduced images, explanations about the surgical technique/s employed … and an updated reference list. … Quite an impressive book to be recommended to surgeons … and to radiologists (who have to answer surgeons’ requests in the best and most precise way) a book to be kept at hand and used in the daily routine in any department.” (G. Beluffi, La radiologia medica, Vol. 118, 2013)

“This book is a ‘get out of jail free’ card for every radiologist and every surgeon who has to deal with patients following abdominal surgery. … The text is commendably readable and concise, making it a very good bench book for quick referral when busy lists and impatient surgeons make prompt reporting essential. … My advice can only be get a copy, keep it close to you; it will become a good friend.” (D. Martin, Clinical Radiology, Vol. 68 (2), 2013)

“This is an excellent book and one that I enjoyed reading and will keep in my room at work to assist with reporting, particularly when I am on-call. … ‘every department should have a copy in their library’ and that it was a ‘very good book.’ … The book is well illustrated using most imaging modalities, including contrast studies, CT, MRI, and plain films. … There are many helpful line diagrams illustrating procedures.” (Adrian Thomas, RAD Magazine, September, 2012)

“The Editors (Drs. Brittenden & Tolan) and chapter authors should be congratulated for tackling such a highly challenging topic … . The chapters are logically organized and peppered with useful schematics that demonstrate the all relevant surgical procedures. … The many illustrated clinical examples nicely support the text. I would highly recommend this book for anyone faced with the challenge of interpreting radiologic studies in the post-operative setting.” (Perry J. Pickhardt, Amazon, July, 2012)
