There is a wealth of information presented in a way that should be understandable to medical students and residents. There is more clinical information than is seen in other radiologic texts aimed at nonradiologists. This book is a reasonable purchase for nonradiologists looking for a readable overview of radiology. ~ reviewed by James M. Messmer, MD.

"This book is clearly aimed at medics aspiring to become radiologists or aiming to improve their image review skills. A selection of pathologies are decribed clearly and in a suitable level of detail given the size of the text and the title. The book is divided into nine clear and obvious sections and is to navigate. It is well written, and easy to follow...Generally a useful initial reference tool for young medics."
