In addition to the editors mentioned above there were five contributing authors Drs. Chapman, Lee, Hamilton, Ginsberg, and Loevner and 21 other radiologists who contributed case material to the book.
It continues to be a matter of personal preference which method of learning is best. Is it the prose-like writing as seen in the two more classic textbooks by Som and Curtin or by Mancuso or the type of presentation of material in this book which is most effective in imparting information and having it stick?
This is not the type of book as with the others in this Diagnostic Imaging series you would attempt to read cover to cover; rather, you use it to look up an abnormality or suspected abnormalities in order to read about imaging characteristics, the pathology involved, and differential diagnoses.
As most readers of the AJNR know, material is presented here in a staccato-like manner with multiple bits of information cataloged under specific headings.
The book is divided into six parts with each containing between two to fifteen sections. Within each section there are multiple subsections and what one could call chapters actually these are more like individual cases. So we read in a bullet-like format the terminology used in describing the disease, imaging features and findings, differential diagnosis in words only—no illustrations , clinical issues including brief mention of treatment, a diagnostic checklist which contains specific imaging points of which one should be aware, and a brief to substantial reference list.
While there is slight deviation of this pattern from case to case, this is the general layout throughout the book. Take just one example, the section on the Nose and Sinus, where incidentally, Dr. Michel has written the entire section. Thus the characteristics and extent of these unusual lesions may be recognized only on cross sectional CT or MR images.
In this article we describe the imaging findings of the various lingual masses, provide radio-pathological correlation and discuss the role of CT and MRI in diagnostic work-up of these uncommon lesions in clinical practice. Methods: Twenty nine patients with mass lesions in tongue were prospectively examined for a period of seven months from March to October with CT or MR imaging after physical examination.
The imaging protocol includes contrast enhanced axial, coronal and sagittal images acquired with 64 slice GE VCT. MR imaging protocol includes three plane contrast-enhanced and non-contrast-enhanced T1-weighted turbo spin-echo sequences, T2-weighted turbo spin-echo sequences, T1-weighted fat saturated images T1-FATSAT.
The findings were further compared with surgical and histopathological results. The rest of the twenty three patients who had positive findings on imaging include seventeen squamous cell carcinoma SCC , one thyroglossal duct cyst, two venous malformations, one hemangioma, one case of lipoma and macroglossia. CT and MRI provide good anatomic detail, precise delineation of the extent of mass lesions and their relation to surrounding structures. In addition, MR imaging is helpful when flow void is identified, it can further characterize the type of flow present.
