Carrying a horde of useful information packed in its 36 chapters, which specifically feature excellent ready text on basic anatomy; radiology physics; dark room procedures; general and regional radiography; ultrasound physics including that of Doppler, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, digital radiography, computed radiography, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, recent advances in cross-sectional imaging; and a host of other subjects, this work is a useful compendium for radiology technologists and residents.

Penned in a lucid, easily understandable language, and employing illustrations, line diagrams, sketches, and images, the work conveys the intended concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. The contents are tailored to benefit the technologists and radiology residents from a practical as well as an examination point of view.

Most chapters are replete with updates on current developments in the arena. This helps the reader keep abreast of the evolving trends. The chapters on planning of a radiology department; ethical, legal, and safety issues related to diagnostic imaging; pediatric radiography; role of anesthesiology in radiology department; and emergency radiography are extremely informative from a practical standpoint.

The work could, however, do with better quality images and illustrations. Pictures taken in the native setting will also help the readers identify with the work more closely. Copyediting, with special attention to typological errors, will enhance the work since such errors wear away the quality.

Dr. SK Bhargava, the editor, is an accomplished educator, teacher, and examiner, and the work reflects his immense experience. In addition to him, 34 other academicians, all eminent experts in the realm of radiology, have also enriched the volume by contributing to it.

In essence, the book is of immense value for radiology technologists and residents, particularly those who have to appear for exit exams.
