From The New England Journal of Medicine
 Imaging in rheumatology has come a long way from roentgenography. Bony
structures are easily seen on plain radiographs, and therefore the
assessment of disorders of the bones and joints was for many years
highly dependent on radiographic findings. In recent decades, the field
of radiology has seen the development of numerous techniques for imaging
the soft tissues and for determining metabolic characteristics. Many of
these procedures are now used in the diagnosis and treatment of
rheumatologic disorders. This compact and well-illustrated book offers a
view of the entire spectrum of techniques that are available for
clinical and research purposes. The editors have taken care to aim the
chapters at both radiologists and rheumatologists, and both groups are
likely to find the book a useful resource. Some areas, such as the lists
of the diagnostic criteria for specific rheumatic syndromes, may be
very familiar to rheumatologists but are likely to serve as useful
reminders for their colleagues in radiology. Readers at all levels, from
trainees to senior physicians, will find the illustrations and
interpretations fascinating and of very high quality.    The book's
organization into three main sections is useful. The first section
covers various methods of imaging, from plain-film radiography to
magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear medicine. In the second section,
imaging techniques related to common rheumatic symptoms are addressed.
The final section is divided into chapters according to specific
rheumatic diseases. Many of the chapters, including the one on
rheumatoid arthritis, offer perspectives on the use of radiographic
techniques in research scenarios, such as the evaluation of outcomes in
clinical trials, and also provide examples of cases that may be of value
to practicing rheumatologists. The book also contains information that
will help rheumatologists write their requests for radiologic
examinations and subsequently interpret radiologists' reports.    A
minor criticism relates to occasional problems with the editing,
including incomplete cross-references and errors in the accuracy of some
of the citations. Overall, however, this is a very useful book that can
well serve as an informational bridge between the interacting
disciplines of radiology and rheumatology. It should be considered a
valuable resource for trainees in rheumatology and radiology as well as
for their mentors.    Jane H. Park, Ph.D.
