This book is a concise and considerably shorter, still complete version than the full-length, standard radiology textbook. Most of this book evolved from the latest editions of Grainger and Sutton’s Textbooks of Radiology, CT and MRI imaging—Haaga and AIIMS- MAMC-PGI CME series. All the facts in the book are checked multiple number of times to give an accurate and up-to-date content to the students. The material is organized into 4 sections and seven chapters. Section–A includes General Radiology (Chapter 1). Section–B includes, Neuroradiology (Chapter 2), Cardiothoracic Radiology (Chapter 3), Gastrointestinal and Genitourinary System (Chapter 4) and Musculoskeletal Radiology (Chapter 5). Section–C includes Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy (Chapter 6), and Nuclear Scans (Chapter 7) and Image Based Questions at the beginning of the book. Difficult concepts are explained stepwise and in form of flowcharts with special high yield points in separate boxes adjacent to text wherever relevant. More than 150 images and more than 50 flow diagrams and tables will help the students not just to understand the text but also to memorize the material quickly in a way to aid in long-term retention. Each chapter begins with a concise theory of each topic, followed by multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and their clear, concise, proper explanations with references of the standard textbooks and/or, research papers wherever required to avoid repetition of the text. Various states PG, AIIMS and JIPMER examination questions had been separated from PGI questions, so that the students can easily concentrate different examinations according to their choice. Each chapter has high yield points in the boxes which are predicted and highly expected new questions for future examination, based on current examination pattern.

Key Features:-
Image-based learning is an integral part of radiology and studying radiology without images might be a futile attempt to learn it. The paucity of such publications has motivated the authors to bring out this well organized, up to date book of radiology which has all the relevant images and image-based questions along with an online pool of images, covering all the important signs and systemic diseases, which surely do not have any substitute or replacement. Review of Radiology is an attempt by authors to ensure answers for all the questions related to imaging from all the subjects of clinical domain, like surgery, medicine, obstetrics and gynecology pediatrics, orthopedics, ENT and ophthalmology. All the topics and concepts given in all the sections (General Radiology, Systemic Radiology, Radiotherapy and Nuclear Scans, Few Thumb Rules in Radiology, Image-based Questions) are not only just for the examinations but also for students'future clinical training and day-to-day working in hospitals. Review of Radiology is surely an ideal book without which learning of medicine and preparation of entrance examination/USMLE is incomplete.
