Basic and somehow dissappointing
on 28 July 2005
In my view, this is an oversimplified book with no enough pictures and description of the imagine of the most common pathologies faced by doctors, which in my view could be included instead of the uncommon ones. Also, the reader should be aware that the images are extremely clear, unfortunately not as clear as the ones we see on the daily practice of Medicine. On the other hand, I am very aware that it would be impossible to include an in-depth description and imaging of all radiology in only 300 small pages, therefore this is a basic book that has to be complemented by other more descriptive and explicative text books.
If I had the chance, I would not buy this book again and would look for something maybe more expensive but with better explanations.
Summarising, an over ambitious book that aims to contain too much information in a small space, resulting in a disappointing basic, sometimes misleading book. However, it can be useful for the very beginners in the Medical field whom will study the interpretation of radiology from other text-books and ward experience.
