This approach to using imaging findings to solve a clinical problem promotes the important concept of becoming an active interpreter of images and is missing from many traditional textbooks. The last section of the book focuses on percutaneous biopsy and drainage.
The book contains abundant high-quality images and simple, but effective, illustrations that nicely complement the text. The images are well labeled with a description of the important finding written at the base of a line pointing to that finding. This labeling method avoids the often cumbersome task of matching symbols in the image with the description of the finding in the caption. This book seems most suited for radiology residents and fellows, general radiologists, and dedicated abdominal imagers, although the interventional radiologist would also benefit from this text given the importance of having a strong background in the diagnostic aspect of radiology for the interventionalist.

The section on percutaneous biopsies and drainages may be particularly helpful for those interventionalists who were not specifically trained in or need a refresher on these basic, but important, procedures. The only omission to the text, which may be of particular interest to the interventionalist, is the procedural and imaging aspects of solid organ ablative procedures such as radiofrequency ablations and cryoablations. The text is comprehensive enough to serve as a daily reference yet readable as a textbook that provides unique insights into the often daunting task of effectively reasoning through the various steps of the imaging management of patients.
