Organized by anatomic region, the text presents brief descriptions of pathophysiology followed by detailed discussion of characteristics of the relevant organ or system. Extensively updated and revised throughout, the new third edition includes over 2,500 figures, of which more than 500 are all-new, including over 200 3T images presented throughout the organ systems.

"Changes have been incorporated into the 20 contributed chapters (numerous 3T images are included). The text as a whole continues to emphasize "short duration imaging studies that combine comprehensive information and consistent image quality" and "multiple examples of disease processes both rare and common, so that the reader has guidance on the appearances of virtually all diseases processes in the abdomen, pelvis, chest and breast, to compare their own cases against" - (from the preface). Presentation is in two volumes." (SciTech Book News, December 2010)
