Chapman and Nakielny’s Guide to Radiological Procedures has become the classic, concise guide to the common procedures in imaging with which a radiology trainee will be expected to be familiar. Now fully revised and updated in line with current practice, it will also prove invaluable to the wider clinical team that now delivers modern imaging services, including radiographers and radiology nurses, as well as a handy refresher for radiologists at all levels. The highly accessible format has been retained, with every technique described under a set of standard headings, making it ideal for both quick reference and exam preparation. The important topic of ‘consent’ is reflected in an additional new chapter and the latest key guidelines are referenced throughout.

  • Synoptic style makes for easy everyday quick refernce as well as exam preparation
  • Selectivity of techniques covered focuses candidates' attention on what questions to expect.
  • Use of standard headings makes information highly accessible.
  • Reflects changes in examination.
  • All new modalities fully covered.
