I have to admit I was excited to review Diagnostic Imaging forthe Emergency Physician by Joshua Broder, MD. He has quickly risen as a leader in emergency radiology, and I was familiar with the quality of his other publications and presentations at national meetings. His book did not disappoint. Dr. Broder appropriately prefaced his book by saying, “This is a book for emergency physicians, by an emergency physician.” It is well organized into sections that are practical and high yield for the practice of emergency medicine. It covers every aspect of imaging, from head to toe; and from radiography to computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasonography. Unlike other emergency radiology texts, it recognizes that imaging does not occur in a vacuum, void of clinical context. His chapters are rich with discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of different imaging modalities, evidence-based reviews of key clinical questions (eg, “Is a chest X-ray routinely indicated for acute respiratory illness.
