This fully revised and updated new edition presents the fundamental core knowledge of film interpretation, specialised radiological investigations, and procedures for imaging specific problems. The book explores common diseases and disorders complemented by good quality radiology images and full-colour illustrations. Concise chapters, organised by body systems cover investigations of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts, the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems, the liver and pancreas, and many others.

Now in its fourth edition, this market-leading guide has been updated to reflect current practices and technologies in the field, featuring new up-to-date content on Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This practical guide:
* Provides a basic foundation in the principles and techniques of radiology
* Offers new content, including up-to-date CT, MRI and nuclear medicine images
* Features bulleted lists, 'Key Points' boxes, and 'Radiological Investigations' sections throughout the text
