About this book

by Elias G. Theros, M. D. I. Meschan Distinguished Professor of Radiology, Wake Forest University Medical Center, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA Amongst the present generation of radiologists, beguiled by the glamour and excitement of the new high tech imaging and interventional modalities, too few have developed a strong sense of differential diagnosis based on radiologic pattern recognition and its correlation with clinical and laboratory fmdings. There is no question about the incredible contribution by the new modalities to our diagnostic armamentarium, but in the evolution of mod­ em-day radiologic practice, the cognitive element has been neglected and our abilities as diagnosticians have suffered. The advent of this third edition of Reeder and Felson's Gamuts in Radiology is timely and welcome. As always, use of the gamut lists will help evoke differential thinking, and this has been enhanced by the addition of over 250 new gamuts as well as by the updating of over three-fourths of the existing gamuts. Interestingly, about 130 of the new gamuts are MRI Gamuts developed by Dr. William Bradley whose enormous experience in clinical MRI has prepared him to think differentially about look-a-like patterns and/or locations of lesions displayed by this modality. This is an important step forward in the use of this remarkable new diagnostic tool.

Reviews

From reviews of the third edition:

"An absolute must for all radiologists and residents"

"The grandfather of, and gold standard for, all texts dealing with differential diagnosis"

"The book most used in the course of a working day"

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"The fourth edition of the Gamuts in Radiology maintains its traditional focus by providing complete and accurate lists of differential diagnoses. … the primary purpose of this reference is to serve as an encyclopedic guide for the radiologist … . radiologists will likely find this book most helpful … . a learning tool for radiologists who are in training and as a refresher for radiologists who are in practice. … it would be a welcome addition to radiology reading rooms." (Jesse Wei, and Phillip M. Boiselle, Radiology, July 2004)

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"The latest edition of this book continues its emphasis on differential diagnosis with the addition of more than 250 new gamuts as well as updating of existing gamuts. … The purpose of the book remains to provide complete and accurate lists of differential radiological diagnoses. … This latest volume will continue to be an essential reference book for departmental libraries where it will be of value both to trainee and consultant radiologists … ." (Dr. D R Foster, RAD Magazine, November, 2003)
