    DescriptionBone Tumors: A Practical Guide to Imaging is a concise guide to common tumors encountered by physicians in daily practice. The authors make use of high-yield facts, differential diagnoses, and extensive radiological images to introduce a wide range of bone tumors, focusing on their classic appearance and location in order to provide readers with a solid foundation of knowledge for tumor recognition and evaluation. The book includes explanations of methods for properly evaluating bone lesions, common imaging modalities used for diagnosis, and individual chapters covering different classes of benign and malignant tumors, including cartilage, osseous, fibrous, miscellaneous, and bone metastases. The book concludes with a comprehensive selection of 75 unknown cases, including brief clinical history, description of imaging findings, best differential diagnoses, and short discussion revealing the most likely diagnosis. Bone Tumors is an ideal resource for practicing physicians and residents in radiology, orthopedic surgery, pathology, and primary care. About the Authors Jim S. Wu, MD, is Assistant Professor of Radiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School. Mary G.

    Review quote
    From the reviews: "This compact text aims to equip the reader with a pragmatic approach to imaging common and important bone lesions encountered in practice, including tumorlike lesions and tumor mimickers. ... This succinct, well-organized, and competitively priced text should appeal most to radiology residents preparing for rotations or examinations. ... the inclusion of 75 cases provides two books in one. For residents, fellows, and others needing to cover the essentials of bone lesion imaging, this book is highly recommended." (Chris W. Davison, Radiology, Vol. 266 (3), March, 2013) "The primary goal is to provide a practical way to analyze bone tumors and to highlight the most common tumors encountered in everyday practice. ... the most unique feature is the collection of 75 case examples with images, which allows readers to practice what they have learned in making the diagnosis. ... All residents readying themselves for in training or boards and all attendings preparing for recertification will cherish this book as a valuable preparation tool before their big exams." (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody's Book Reviews, August, 2012)
