Published Reviews

    "The book is detailed and comprehensive covers almost all that a general practitioner, undergraduate and postgraduate could want to know about radiology and radiography... The book is well laid out, with each chapter starting with the basics before moving on to more complex areas. This is helpful as it means the information is accessible to all; you can start from the beginning and work through full chapters, or simply access a particular area you are interested in...There is the additional benefit of an online self-assessment module, available once you purchase the book, which contains multiple choice questions, extended matching questions and 'drag and drop' style questions. This would be very useful for anyone revising for undergraduate or postgraduate examinations... I can see why previous editions of this book have been so popular. It is easy to dip in and out of, so knowledgeon particular topics can be easily refreshed. The clear explanations make a potentially arduous topic to revise interesting read. A must have for undergraduates and GDPs alike!"

    British Dental Journal, January 2014

    Great informative book giving all the basics of radiation protection, technique and a helpful section on how to improve image quality with selection of poorly positioned radiographs. I recommend this title for the dental room in X-ray departments and/or dental nurses/students.
