Customer Reviews

Highly recommended!  April 18, 2011

First year radiography student and have found this to be a very helpful resource! I carry it around in my scrubs pocket and refer to it as needed! Small enough to be portable but large enough to not have to strain to read it! It's a great learning tool; I call it my little bible. Wouldn't be without it! You can just take a quick peek in the guide to find different positions and there are also charts for you to write what techniques those work for you. I received it within days. Seller was good; I give my highest recommendation for you to buy this cheap and invaluable textbook.
