The fourth edition of Grainger & Allison's Diagnostic Radiology, like previous editions, provides a comprehensive overview of diagnostic imaging. In three volumes, more than 170 contributors from various countries provide a text that is elegantly written and concise.

The first volume features a multichapter section on general imaging techniques and issues. New chapters cover recent developments in radiology, such as multidetector computed tomography and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). Volume 1 also has sections focusing on imaging of the chest and the cardiovascular system. Volume 2 is predominantly devoted to abdominal and pelvic imaging, with multichapter sections on the gastrointestinal tract and genitourinary tract and a third section devoted to the liver, biliary tract, pancreas, and endocrine system. This section in volume 2 also contains a chapter on reticuloendothelial disorders, including lymphoma. Volume 3 discusses imaging of the female reproductive system, including hysterosalpingography and mammography, and the male reproductive system. Volume 3 also contains multichapter sections on the central nervous system, head and neck imaging (orbit, ear, nose, throat, face, and teeth), and the skeletal system.
