Undoubtedly the quality, scope, and innovative method of presentation place these volumes among the best texts on skeletal radiology. More appropriately, they probably deserve the title of "the standard references."

More than 4,000 illustrations reproduced in an unbelievably superb fashion attest to the comprehensive coverage of almost any skeletal disorder one could imagine. Despite this encyclopedic scope, the volumes remain remarkably easy to read and study.
