Reviews of the current edition:
"This is a fantastic book which presents the essential core knowledge for Medical Students."
Sphincter, Liverpool Medical School Gazette
"The level of detail is such that junior doctors may also find it of interest in the early stages of training. In conclusion, this concise and useful book should prove to be a valuable addition to the 'Lecture Notes' series so well known to medical students."
"Lecture Notes on Radiology is an excellent book, which I believe would be invaluable when surgical and medical finals rear their ugly heads, as well as being useful for the earlier years....All topics are well structured, easy to read and beautifully laid out."
Leech Y Gelen, University of Wales College of Medicine Student Gazette
"Overall, it is almost impossible for me to criticise this book, a position I rarely find myself in. This is one book the review copy of which I will hang on to, use frequently, and recommend to the medical students who come through the wards."
