Imaging in Treatment Planning for Sinonasal Diseases | American Journal of Neuroradiology
In this issue
Chapter 10 covers pathologies arising from the skull base, sella, and jaw that might secondarily involve the paranasal sinuses, and the last chapter covers posttreatment findings and complications.
MRI-only treatment planning: benefits and challenges
The subject matter is notable for the brief treatment of 2 areas: The authors acknowledge these omissions in the preface, and confess to less exposure to these areas in their clinical practice. The other, more conspicuous omission is the lack of discussion of the role of fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography PET imaging in neoplastic sinonasal disease. A solitary PET case is presented at the end of the final chapter.
The first is the multitude of grammatical errors and misuse of English phrases, and the second is the haphazard arrangement of chapters and of topics within chapters. In presenting a book in English written by non-native speakers, the publishers must ensure correct use of English terminology and grammar.
There are numerous mishaps throughout the book that significantly interfere with appreciation of the content. A few examples include: Although most readers, I imagine, are happy to let a few aberrant phrases slip by, the descriptions in some figure legends particularly in chapter 11 are so confusing as to make them almost indecipherable.

This devalues the teaching points of otherwise excellent cases. The second issue with this book is that the core chapters describing different pathologic processes are very unevenly organized. There is an apparently random order in which different pathologies are presented and a disproportionate emphasis on pathologies that are discussed. For example, in chapter 6, the authors devote 5 pages to the different imaging manifestations and types of fungal sinus infection which, in my practice, is a not-infrequent and sometimes life-threatening problem but also devote 5 pages to the discussion of sarcoidosis, which they acknowledge rarely involves the paranasal sinuses.
