Review:

"Clearly and logically organised: each chapter is introduced through objectives and key terms, and closed with a summary and review questions [...] I am not aware of any other work covering the same ground so comprehensively. For the working radiographer, the guidelines on exposure and quality control practices are especially valuable. In short, it is thoroughly recommended."

Radiology, City University London, July 2011
