"The three volume textbook Grainger and Allison's Diagnostic Radiology has been a standard reference work for registrars training in the UK for thhe FRCR examinations for many years... A particular nice feature are the highlighted sections bullet points and the smmaries and tables. The chapter on tumor staging is particularly helpful. Although only in one volume, the text is very comprehensive and has more than enough material for today's trainee...The authors deserve to be congratulated on their gargantuan efforts and I am sure this textbook will be well thumbed by future radiology trainees preparing for their examinations."
