Editorial Reviews


“This is a textbook for the Information Age…The book’s ‘unique bulleted format’ accomplishes everything a highlighter does, and more.” -Jane L. Weissman, MD, FACR; Professor of Radiology, Otolaryngology, and Ophthalmology; Oregon Health and Science University

“[A] comprehensive and wonderfully illustrated text. The strength of this text lies in the extensive information and easy to navigate format. I highly recommend this book to the practicing neuroradiologist or the advanced trainee preparing for the neuroradiology CAQ exam.” -AuntMinnie.com, Jan. 2005

“Although written primarily for radiologists,…the quality of the illustrations and the comprehensive, well-organized review of the included material should make this book particularly attractive to neurotologists and head and neck oncology surgeons, as well as to otolaryngology academic department libraries.” -Annals of Otology, Rhinology, & Laryngology, 2005

Diagnostic Imaging: Brain, Diagnostic Imaging: Spine, and Diagnostic Imaging: Head & Neck…present the reader with a remarkable set of beautifully illustrated and highly educational textbooks.

“[T]he color illustrations alone are worth the price of admission, not only because they convey the essentials of the diagnosis, but also because they spectacularly correlate with the CT and MR images…Buy this set of three books, recommend them to all those in neurosciences, make sure your departmental library has every one of the volumes, and refer to them often.”- AJNR Aug. 2005

Diagnostic Imaging: Head and Neck is the third volume of the Diagnostic Imaging series by Amirsys, Inc.”

“There are four general sections: I) Temporal Bone and Skull Base; II) Orbit, Nose, and Sinuses; III) Suprahyoid and Infrahyoid Neck; and IV) Pediatric and Transspatial Lesions. In each section, the disease processes are described with special attention paid to terminology and imaging findings, both computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, with references to required sequences. The book may be of assistance to the clinician interested in having a more informed dialogue with his consultant radiologists.”

“It will hopefully be available in many libraries| Skull base surgeons or those involved in the training of residents may want to have one handy in their deparment.” Journal of Neurosurgery, January 2006

Excellent Resource, Well OrganizedNovember 29, 2007

I used this to study for my CAQ, well-organized with concise and in-depth reviews as necessary. A little short on Congenital Inner Ear Malformations and the spectrum i.e. Cochlea etc., but on the whole, seemed very comprehensive, readable, and good for review of a very information intense and sometimes diffcult topic.
