Review quote

This small inexpensive paperback is intended to be a convenient and informative, white coat pocket guide. It fulfils this aim admirably and I much enjoyed reading it. The book derives from the radiology "Red Dot? teaching course. I am certainly going to recommend this book for personal purchase by those of our trainee radiologists who are unable to attend the course, and I will frequently refer to my own review copy when teaching plain film chest radiographic interpretation. Rad Magazine Review, January 2009 The radiology trainee faced with the task of independently reporting chest radiographs will find this book invaluable. It is an eminently readable volume serving both as a comprehensive introduction to, and a handy pocket sized reference on radiology investigation. The Royal College of Radiologists, 2008 "The radiographs are surprisingly clear and the diagrams are excellent - illustrating points that are sometimes difficult to visualise...This book successfully shows that a topic can be made accessible without being oversimplified - and, in fact, that explanation of the nuances can often make the topic 'easier' still. Well done to the authors" "BMA Book Awards 2009?- judges comments"
