This book gives a synoptic description of the practical details of how to carry out the common procedures in imaging on which a trainee in radiology will be expected to be familiar. It does not attempt to cover rarer techniques beyond the scope of the exam or to show the resulting images. Every technique is described under a set of standard headings (for example: methods, indications, equipment, patient preparation, technique, aftercare, complications, further reading).
Synoptic style makes for easy preparation for the examination.
Selectivity of techniques covered focuses candidates' attention on what questions to expect.
Use of standard headings makes information highly accessible.
"The book provides a comprehensive and well-referenced guide to a wide range of imaging techniques and the imaging modalities employed...Overall, an excellent book that benefits from the additional chapters on sedation and monitoring, medical emergencies and breast procedures and the updates made to the exisiting chapters." Rad Magazine, June 2010
