Book Description:

This is a well-organized and easy-to-use reference text. The atlas section excels, with a clear description of the condition and its associated histopathologic, conventional radiographic, computed tomographic, and MR imaging findings. This book successfully meets its goals of providing an up-to-date reference for clinicians, radiologists, and pathologists dealing with diagnostic bone and soft-tissue tumor and tumorlike dilemmas. It is a useful companion to standard musculoskeletal texts and will be helpful to general and subspecialized radiologists in academic or private practice settings.--Radiology (RSNA)A remarkable achievement...can serve as a reference source...a self-quiz...or it can be used as an authoritative description of all lesions the neuroradiologist may encounter...This is a well-written, attractive, perfectly formatted text that belongs either in the personal library of practicing neuroradiologists or, at the minimum, should be readily available in a sectional or departmental library.--American Journal of NeuroradiologyThis collection of musculoskeletal tumors and tumor-like conditions and their MRI appearances is as comprehensive as one can expect... Many rare entities are explored and very few are missing. The book is really two in one. Following a brief introduction, two sections first show and then tell the MRI world of musculoskeletal lesions... As a first edition, this volume is a heroic task. Dr. Meyers' atlas is a wonderful addition because of the depth and breadth of examples of MRI lesions covered in the book. The quality of the MR images is quite good. Dr. Meyers gets high points for indexing the lesions in this book: the index is superb. Now that I have this book it will be near me in the reading room and be consulted often, both for diagnostic and teaching purposes.--Douglas N. Mintz, Clinical ImagingThis is an excellent, beautifully illustrated, well-written, very well-organized text of MR bone and soft-tissue tumors. The image quality is absolutely superb throughout the entire text with 2,976 illustrations... The book is useful for learning MR imaging features, studying for the boards, generating a differential diagnosis, and referencing a particular entity. This book would be an excellent resource for residents, fellows, radiologists, pathologists, and orthopaedic surgeons. Any MR image reading room would benefit from a copy of this book.--Academic RadiologyConveniently organized...extensive references to the literature...a practical reference-style excellent resource for the broader medical community...the overall image quality is quite good...particularly useful in a busy referral center...a useful addition...recommend[ed].--AJR[Five stars] [An] image-rich atlas...uniquely structured to facilitate rapid access to a wealth of information...has absolutely no shortcomings...a high-quality book...a wonderful resource for any practicing radiologist or radiologist in training...highly recommend[ed]...without reservation. --Doody's
