My dear father Harnam Singh on his 101st birthday
Radiology is a Kindergarten of logical rational coherent exploration and balanced learning and not dexterous adroit smugness or learning egotism cultivated by fake self-centeredness and egoism.
–Hariqbal Singh6
7Contributors 9Preface
Radiology for Undergraduates and General Practitioners is a comprehensive book meant for MBBS students who have a wide curriculum and many subjects. In radiology, there is no separate examination but forms part of surgery, however, radiology-related questions are asked in medicine, gynecology and obstetrics.
The syllabus in radiology at undergraduate level is extensive and time is short. The book has been structured such that the student is introduced to radiology and at the same time is prepared to do well in the examination without taking too much of his time. Images have been provided to give a better understanding of the subject. The book covers all questions asked in the examination. At the end of the book, syllabus in radiology for undergraduates has been given. It is expected to be covered in 20 lectures of one hour duration each and one clinical postings of two weeks in radiology department, which is most dubious.
The book will be a great asset for the general practitioners who will find his day-to-day imaging solutions in this.
