    From the Publisher
    "The layout is easy to follow and an index is provided. There are twenty one chapters dealing with various aspects of radiography. Self test and multiple choice questions, with answers included, allow the reader to evaluate their learning. The summary boxes and references provided in each chapter are useful, directing readers to potential sources of more in-depth information...The text would be useful for those considering a career in radiography or for a health professional seeking a superficial knowledge of an individual imaging modality."

    Elizabeth Betts, Clinical Learning Facilitator, Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
