  • "The attractiveness of this concept is that it approaches  the concerns that many medical practitioners have as  they move through their everyday practice  and it makes it easy for practitioners to utilise the book as questions occur as their work evolves...The great stength of this book is that it contains a wide breath of material in an extremely accessible, problem-orientated manner that can be rapidly accessed...It allows the reader to rapidly become an expert in a small area that he or she may be concerned about and the style of the chapters effectively accentuates the key points in each area...Overall, therefore, an excellent comprehensive text presented in a way that allows the reader easy access to important bits of information without getting bogged down or imtimidated by the size of the whole textbook itself. This will make an excellent addition to any imaging library and would be a first-rate companion next to the reporting workstation."
