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.
