This is an introductory book to radiological English on the basis that there are a lot of radiologists, radiology residents, radiology nurses, radiology students, and radiographers worldwide whose English level is indeterminate because their reading skills are much higher than their fluency. It is intended to help those health care professionals who need English for their work but do not speak English on a day-to-day basis.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This volume is essentially an introduction to radiological English. . The radiological report is such a crucial part of the radiologist's work that any help in improving the quality of the written word and report is welcome. This is applicable not only to people for whom English may not be the first language but also for native local English speakers. I have found this book a most useful and interesting read. I hope I have learned from it and that my reporting phraseology will improve." (Dr A K Banerjee, RAD Magazine, May, 2008)
