Review quote

"The editors have continued the high standards of the previous editions. I am sure the current edition will be successful and help young radiologists to prepare for their examinations and continue to be a source of information to be dipped in and out of. Senior radiologists will also find the book useful to brush up on areas in which their knowledge has gone rusty." Reviewed by RAD Magazine, March 2015

"Overall I think the book is a fine tool in the daily practice of radiology. The new editors succeed in continuing the high standard of this major work in radiology."
