Like its predecessors (vol. 1, Brain and vol. 2, Lung), this atlas should find a place on the bookshelf of every department in which physicians are being trained in nuclear medicine. Again, the very pleasing "show-and-tell" case discussion format is used. Following a brief summary of the clinical data, the pertinent scans and roentgenograms are illustrated and interpreted; this is followed by the histological or operation findings and a terse comment. We have the normal anatomy and its variants, and then a whole host of abnormalities (including several rarities). The newest radiopharmaceuticals are used in all cases, as well as some that are hot out of the cyclotron (sic), eg, gallium 72, indium 111. The illustrations are of very high caliber, as we have come to expect from these authors. In general, the production of the book cannot be faulted. So much for the good news.

I was very disconcerted
