A well-illustrated, systems-based primer on learning radiologic imaging
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"Overall, this is a high quality book and a nice quick reference that is surprisingly complete for its size. The copious and well-chosen images are particularly valuable. It would be a good addition to the libraries of radiology departments, especially for medical students who are interested in radiology as a specialty and for radiology residents at the beginning of their training."--Doody's Review Service
