Dunnebier EA. Imaging for Otolaryngologists. Thieme 2011, 346 pages, $59.99.
Written by an ENT surgeon (Dr. Dunnebier) with collaboration from 2 radiologists (Drs. Beek and Pameijer), this easily portable 346-page softcover book is intended for ENT surgeons who wish to have an atlas-type demonstration of major imaging abnormalities of the head and neck. The chapters are: “Radiographic Imaging Techniques,” “Temporal Bone,” Skull Base,” “Paranasal Sinuses and Nasal Cavity,” and “The Neck.”
This is clearly intended for practicing ENT surgeons, and it succeeds in that regard. From a radiologist’s standpoint, the images and the parts worth looking at are those which show postoperative appearances. Worth noting are comments which are of interest to our surgical colleagues.
While few if any neuroradiologists would likely purchase this book, it can be a publication which could be recommended by radiologists to their head neck surgeons.
