This book gives a synoptic description of the practical details of how to carry out the common procedures in imaging on which a trainee in radiology will be expected to be familiar. It does not attempt to cover rarer techniques beyond the scope of the exam or to show the resulting images. Every technique is described under a set of standard headings (for example: methods, indications, equipment, patient preparation, technique, aftercare, complications, further reading).

Key Features

  • Synoptic style makes for easy preparation for the examination.
  • Selectivity of techniques covered focuses candidates' attention on what questions to expect.
  • Use of standard headings makes information highly accessible.
