Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is aimed primarily at radiologists, but physicians in other specialties, such as infectious disease and internal medicine, will also find it useful. It covers, in a comprehensive systematic approach, multiple diseases and all organ systems involved. . The book is well organized and clearly written. The tables are well laid out and easy to grasp . many important facts. . Imaging of Parasitic Diseases is an excellent review and reference book. I believe that every radiologic and medical library should own this volume." (Branko M. Plavsic, Radiology, Vol. 253 (2), November, 2009)
