Reviews

From the reviews:

5 Stars Doody's review:

Description: This is a new and exciting book that provides a review of skeletal abnormalities in two ways. The authors approach each abnormal radiologic finding and link each abnormality to specific genetic disorders in the first section. In the second section, the authors review 111 common skeletal dysmorphologic conciliations. Each entry is followed by excellent radiologic images.

Audience: ... this is a great teaching tool for pediatrics, radiology, and genetics residents as well for medical students in general. This is a "must have" book for the pediatric radiologist in practice.

Assessment: The authors have accomplished a tremendous task. They present us with a unique book that deviates from the traditional radiologic atlas format. It allows clinicians to extract from radiologic reports findings that may be significant and associated with specific genetic conditions. This is a unique book, not only in its format, but also in the information it presents. It is the basis of radiological skeletal dysmorphology. The printing, presentation, and images presented are of excellent quality.

"This is a concise book, which can be used as a reference for trying to analyse skeletal dysplasias. … There are many good quality clinical pictures and radiographs. … The text is thoroughly referenced. The text would be useful for orthopaedic, paediatric and radiology departments and all health care professionals, especially orthopaedics and radiologists." (Dr. P. Richards, RAD Magazine, May, 2006)

"This is an excellent book, written by two experienced, well known paediatric radiologists. The book is divided into two parts. … The images are of high quality and are relevant to the text. I highly recommend this book to all hospitals and large private practice libraries. It is an indispensable book for those working in paediatric radiology, orthopaedic surgery, paediatric and genetics." (K Kozlowski, Australasian Radiology, Vol. 51, 2007)
