In my ? rst days as a Radiology resident I remember myself in dire need of a book in which I could begin to study the specialty. In those days I was thirsty for radiolo- cal knowledge and was recommended a classic manual on conventional chest X-ray which was the very same the oldest radiologist of the staff had studied when he was a beginner. Unfortunately the book I was recommended covered less than 5% of the specialty as it is conceived nowadays. "Learning Diagnostic Imaging. A Teaching File" is intended to provide medical students, residents of Radiology, and anybody else beginning to be involved in the radiological world, with a useful tool that gives them a quick and comprehensive overview of Radiology. With this book, written in a user-friendly format, Radiology residents, nurses, technicians, and medical students would see their ? rst radiolo- cal images in a sort of introduction of what will become their professional activities in the rest of their lives.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"It essentially divides radiology into 10 sections . . The book is aimed at the medical student market and the junior doctors market as well as any other interested healthcare professionals. . Each section contains material for further reading at the end, which will appeal to those who like to study in greater depth. . Overall, the presentation of the book is good and I am sure the text will be a welcome addition to the . market in this area." (Arpan Banerjee, RAD Magazine, January, 2009)"The purpose of this book is to provide a quick introduction to diagnostic imaging for medical students and radiology residents, as well as technicians, physician assistants, and nurses associated with diagnostic imaging. Because the book is divided into subspecialties, it may also serve as a refresher for specialized radiologists who are encountering unexpected findings. . This book serves as a teaching file for beginners in diagnostic imaging . ." (Aurelio Matamoros Jr., The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, April, 2009)"Learning Diagnostic Imaging is a collection of cases designed for medical students and new residents as a preview of the various subspecialties of radiology. . The authors attempt to provide an essential background level of information on which to base future learning as the reader proceeds through medical school and/or residency. . This book is easy to read and understand and is user friendly. . it is worth the investment if you are in need of a high-quality introductory case-file book." (James W. Berger, Radiology, Vol. 253 (2), November, 2009)
