Reflecting changes to the content and assessment methods used in medical education, Radiology at a Glance provides a user-friendly overview of radiology to encapsulate all that the student needs to know.

Radiology at a Glance:

  • Addresses the basic concepts of radiation physics and radiation protection together with a structured approach to image interpretation
  • Offers coverage of the radiology of plain X-rays, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, MRI, intervention, and nuclear medicine
  • Presents both theory and clinical practice through theoretical and case-based chapters
  • Features common and classic cases in each chapter
  • Includes OSCE preparation and self-assessment chapters with self-test radiographs
  • Provides easy access tables to help assess which radiological procedures are most appropriate for specific clinical problems
  • Allows for quick, easy access and reference whilst on the wards
  • Reflects the rapidly evolving impact of interventional radiology in managing patients
  • Includes a Foreword by the President of the Royal College of Radiologists

Pre-publication reviews
