    Are there any plans to make these books available in a digital format that is searchable, easily upgradable to the next edition, and possible to annotate?

    In regards to the Medical Imagining book, are the normal vs pathological set up in a side-by-side comparison? Also, that is the only book I would be interested in for this raffle.

    Will there eventually be a Kindle/iPad edition or iPhone reference application for each title? What is usually the lag time between publishing a new edition and the availability of a Kindle edition of each text?

    Most schools do not include these books as required reading. What do you believe are the strengths that would influence the students to read these as supplements or as main source of information

    Does the pocket sized surgery companion book contain a digital version in the included CD-ROM or does that only have supplementary information?

    How have your books improved from edition to edition, further, how do you plan to incorporate new methods of book reading (iPad, Kindle, iPhone, Blackberry, netbooks) into your models. Do you think that it will be possible to release such books on a black and white reader such as the Kindle?

    I would also like to know whether or not medical textbooks (these listed and others) would be available in an electronic format (just digital copies or interactive versions) in the near future. What do you think the time frame on this is?

    Going along these lines, these books seem like reference materials, is this something that needs to be updated often or is it designed to be a book that you can keep for decades and used as needed?

    Good question!

    Also, do any of these textbooks have practice questions (either at the end of each chapter or online)?

    Is the online access that comes with some of the books only available for a certain amount of time (180 days, 1 year)? Or if you purchase the book, can you always access the online content? Would be good to have it for at least 2 years (MS1 & 2)

    Would the medical imaging book be appropriate for a radiology resident or is the material to basic?

    My school requires Bates, but I have heard many mixed reviews about it. I was wondering if Swartz's book would be a useful companion text, or if it would present things in such a different way it would be confusing - knowing that the faculty is looking for things to be done the "Bates way".
    Thank you.

    The book Medical Imaging of Normal and Pathologic Anatomy, By Joel A. Vilensky, is geared more for the medical student in years 1 & 2 when they are learning anatomy so it probably would be a bit too basic when in Residency. If you are looking for a Rad/Anatomy refresher, we have another book by the same author which is intended more for those in clerkship or residency:
    Netter's Concise Radiologic Anatomy, by Weber and Vilensky

    do you offer any books that combine the normal physiology, pathophysiology, and the pharmacology all into one comprehensive book? It would be useful to learn the disease, the normal baseline, and the drugs that treat it all in one place.

    Also, for the norm and pathophysiology book. are there picture comparison of the body fxns and images that are next to each other... How is the book organized.

    Netter's physiology is a neat book.

    I've never heard of the surgery book listed, though. How does that help a third year student on their surgery rotation?

    I am also curious about the books that will help soon to be 3rd years going into clinicals. Could others aside from the surgery pocket book help for clerkships?

    I was wondering how useful Brody's Pharmacology would be to a pharmacy student, either as a lecture study aid or for NAPLEX prep.
