Industry Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The authors have organized a book to help simplify choosing an optimal imaging study among multiple possibilities. This is a third edition, the first published in 1996. ... The audience includes those practicing clinicians who, rather than looking for detailed discussion, are seeking direction and advice. The authors are experienced practitioners who have lived through the technologic advances as they have occurred." (Vincent F Carr, Doody's Review Service, July, 2008)
