"This primer is unique in the way it serves as a radiology curriculum and an excellent tool for self learning. Other books that have attempted this often get bogged down trying to cover too many details or subjects. This one does a good job of keeping the information manageable and concise. The updates and the online tools make this edition a worthy upgrade." - David Kirsch, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation), excerpts from Doody’s review service.
"The information in each chapter is presented in a concise and logical way with bullet points and tables that give the reader a quick grasp of the clinically relevant facts about any particular condition.The simple accompanying sketches are useful, as most radiologists will readily agree that a picture is worth a thousand words...Overall, this book is a handy book for learning or looking facts and will be useful for registrars for the FRCR part IIa and IIb."
