Medical Science Books Medical Book Review:
Another reviewer has stated that this new second edition is better illustrated and easier to read than the first edition.  While we don't have the first edition on hand to compare it to, the illustrations in this edition are very helpful, numerous, and crisp.  There is an entire chapter dedicated to MRI of the urinary tract which clearly illustrate a variety of common developmental and acquired pathologies.

Also, while other reference books on the subject are larger, this one is extremely concise and includes access to additional features on expertconsult.com.  Once you receive your book, simply use the code located inside the front cover to activate it and you'll be able to read the book online from any computer, do searches on any topic contained in the book, and follow links to PubMed abstracts for bibliographical references.  If you have other Expert Consult titles, you can view them all from your online library.
