Review quote

Thomas Jefferson University, Frances Gilman -- "There are few textbooks that are as comprehensive as this one yet written at an appropriate level for learning. Provides an excellent resource and or primary textbook for students & technologists. Excellent for CT board review." University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Jeff Berry -- "I need something precisely like this for my B.S level radiography program CT class and also for a fusion imaging class I teach to B.S. radiation therapy and nuclear medicine students. The up to date information would be very valuable." , L.N. -- "The author goes into lots of detail concerning the various imaging procedures. She presents a good collaboration of information that has not been seen in other similar texts."show more
