Review quote

"Radiology at a Glance" is a user friendly revision text for medical students and students of radiography as well as of physiotherapy. The text and illustrations are of a sufficiently high standard to appeal to postgraduates studying for higher examinations and to practicing physicians. Particularly informative are the sections on classic cases in each chapter. There is a helpful chapter describing which radiological procedures are most appropriate for specific clinical problems. The chapter on nuclear medicine and the one on interventional radiology are particularly informative." (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, October 2010)
