Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The primary audience for this book will be undergraduate students on diagnostic radiography programmes. Academics will also find this book of interest as there are many useful resources available both within the text book and as online resources. The text is well written and clear. Crucial information is signposted...making it easy to find.

This is a welcome new edition of a respected book which could be included as a recommended text for undergraduate students.'

Radiography, June 2012

"This book seeks to address all aspects of patient care and (in just under 500 pages) largely succeeds, using a logical and thorough approach...The scope of the information is surprisingly wide, covering everything from the psychology of patients having special needs to the practicalities of setting up a sterile trolley...All-in-all, this is a well-trusted, fact packed, easy to access resource and, despite its American leaning, has a lot to offer UK radiography students."
