This book is one volume from the highly regarded Case Review Series covering several radiology subspecialties. The aim of the series is to educate the reader via core knowledge question-and-answer case studies. Perhaps the most noticeable feature of this book is the outstanding quality of the ultrasound images, all of which appear to have been acquired using top of the range systems. I can thoroughly recommend this book, not just for departments training junior radiologists, but for any department carrying out the full range of non-obstetric ultrasound imaging. As a test for its target audience, I asked the opinion of some of our specialist registrars, and all found it to be extremely useful and informative. It will be of equal value to consultant radiologists and to trainee sonographers. Clinical Radiology, May 2008
