Renal Microvascular Disease: Angiographic-Microangiographic Correlates is a concise, well-written study of the renal microvascular bed, which should be of wider appeal than the somewhat esoteric title might suggest.
Dr Bookstein is a radiologist with an interest in angiography and Dr Clark is a radiologist with interests in pathology and microangiography. Each has combined his own area of interest with meticulous attention to technique and detail to produce a remarkable study of the renal microvascular bed in various disease states. The quality of the illustrations can only be appreciated by an angiographer. By combining the techniques of in vitro microangiography and in vivo magnification angiography, Drs Bookstein and Clark have offered clear, well-illustrated explanations of the various radiographic patterns that are seen at angiography and excretory urography. In the next edition of this text, the authors might consider including urographic examples as well as angiographic patterns, since this work will be
