"The book's illustrations are superb. At the beginning of each chapter, an overview is presented, helping to succinctly outline the key points in the chapter. Tables and boxes are employed to outline key diagnostic and treatment points. There are a number of clinical pictures along with radiographic images to help highlight points of interest."
