"This is a well-organized book filled with great teaching points. Like books in the Diagnostic Imaging series, the level of detail makes this an excellent reference. The goal is to teach the reasoning behind expert interpretation of disease in the abdomen and pelvis, and the authors are more successful in achieving this aim than many of the other books I have read."
