From the reviews:

"This is an excellent multi-author book written by a number of well-known skeletal radiologists from around the world. It has a technique-based section followed by chapters covering a number of pathological processes including bone, vasculature, and subungual diseases. The subject is covered comprehensively from congenital disorders to degenerative disease … and the book is well referenced. … I would recommend this book to any skeletal radiologist and any general radiologist with an interest in the hand and wrist." (Dr. Gina Allen, Radiology Now, Vol. 20 (1), 2003)

"The book is laid out in three major sections. The first discusses the use of the major imaging modalities in imaging the hand and wrist, the second discusses normal skeletal development and congenital malformations, and the third contains chapters on discreet disease entities. … the quality of the illustrations is excellent … . I would recommend this book as a concise review of a common but sometimes complex area and commend it particularly for its treatment of uncommon but important conditions … ." (Howard Galloway, Australian Radiology, Vol. 46 (4), 2002)

"‘The book provides a complete overview of all modalities used for hand and wrist imaging, along with a complete overview of the various disease entities that can be diagnosed.’ … (Promotional text from the publisher.) It is rare that a reviewer can agree completely with a statement from the publisher, but in this case it is possible … . It is a pleasure to recommend this book to all radiologists and clinicians with an interest in hand and wrist problems." (Kjell Jonsson, Acta Radiologica, Vol. 43 (2), 2002)

"This book is a treatise on hand and wrist imaging. It is divided into twenty-two chapters which deal with all modalities of hand and wrist imaging … . Chapters are written by renowned experts and are particularly clear. An exhaustive list of references is presentedat the end of each chapter. The book is well illustrated with good quality images. This is a pleasant and useful book for everyone involved in hand and wrist pathology." (X. Demondion, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Vol. 23 (5), 2001)

"The book ‘Fundamentals of hand and wrist imaging’ is based on a compilation of separate chapters written by renowned musculoskeletal radiologists, most of them practicing in Europe. … Although the book is a compilation of parts written by different authors, the overall homogeneity of the work is excellent and readability is not compromised. The illustrations are abundant and generally of high quality. … it is an interesting work, bringing a valuable contribution to the imaging of a difficult anatomic region." (M. De Maeseneer, European Radiology, Vol. 12 (1), 2002)

"The editors have brought together contributions from a wide range of authors with considerable expertise in imaging of the hand and wrist. Given the multiplicity of authors, the editors are to be commended for maintaining a reasonably uniform level of detail. These are often lacking in similar texts. The target audience is essentially the specialist clinician and radiologist. They will not be disappointed. … I am very impressed by this book and commend it to all those who specialize in hand or wrist disease." (Dr. D. J. Wilson, RAD Magazine, October, 2001)
