This is another book in this series of books to aid candidates for the MRCPCH paediatric examination and it would also be useful for radiology trainees preparing for their exams in paediatrics.
The book is very clearly set out with a useful initial section of interpretation, rules, and tools with each of the 100 or so cases. There are clear answers and a useful list of radiology points and clinical relevant facts to the condition demonstrated.
There is a small bibliography of the books that could be referred to and it is unfortunate that the authors haven't referenced their radiology and paediatric points to the bibliography and/or other references. Nevertheless, the book will be a useful aid to doctors training for their examinations and, indeed, could be a useful text for CPD for consultants.
It is competitively priced at £17.50.
