Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book is a concise introduction to the radiographic anatomy of major bones and joints within the body. The book is now in its fifth edition, this latest benefiting from the inclusion of additional radiographic images from a range of imaging modalities. Illustrations have been given a second colour to aid comprehension and a self-test aid has been included. The book is written for undergraduate diagnostic radiography students but would also be of use to other health care professionals and prove a useful revision tool for qualified radiographers. Overall, an excellent book which benefits from the additions made to it. - Ann Newton-Hughes, Lecturer and Clinical Learning Manager, University of Salford. "This would be an excellent reference book for anyone who needs to learn their anatomy and physiology of bones and joints." Samantha Robinson, British Journal of Healthcare Assistants August 2008

'Strength for this text lies in its simple musculoskeletal diagrams. The book is aimed at healthcare students who are new to anatomy and need to get up-to-speed quickly. This publication also comes with a scratch code that is intended to give the purchaser access to electronic content via the publisher's website and also via a third party mobile device app to devices such as an iPad. The downloadable eReader allows the creation of user-defineable notes and highlights that can be accessed/shared by other members of a student's class.

In summary, at just over 250 pages,this book is a reader-friendly introduction to the musculoskeletal sytem and would be of interest to any new radiography student.'
