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)

"I think the book explains the concepts brilliantly!"
--4th year medical student, Leicester University

"The concepts are very clearly explained, including some of the more difficult physical principles. The case selection is very good and allows a solid explanation of tricky cases."
--Final year student, Oxford University

Review Text

"I would love to have had this book when I started my clinical years at medical school. It explains basic physics and imaging concepts well and is a good revision aid. I particularly like the relevant example cases and the self-test section. I would highly recommend this book to medical students in their clinical years." (Dr Sian Loe, Foundation Year Doctor, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford)
"In summary, this text-book provides a low-cost and accessible guide to the radiology department that will be a vauable asset to medical students and doctors in training". (RAD Magazine, 1 January 2011)
"But all in all, this is a good introduction to radiology and suitable for the target audience. The book is also well to date in a field in rapid development." (Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, 18 November 2010)
