Published Reviews

    "This is a very useful book for the intended audience. It is very basic, so radiology residents will probably not find it that useful after about six months of training, but nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical students, and primary care physicians should find it extremely useful. There have been sufficient changes in the field of radiology to warrant the new edition."- Bennett Greenspan, MD, MD(Medical College of Georgia) Doody Review: 5 stars
