Aus den Rezensionen:

"... Das Buch eignet sich nicht nur als Grundlage fur Assistenzarzte und wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter, sondern auch fur Facharzte und erfahrene Forschungsgruppenleiter in der Radiologie, die ihr statistisches Verstandnis vertiefen moechten ... kurz gefasst und uberaus gut strukturiert Jede erlauterte statistische Methode wird an klassischen Beispielen aus radiologischen Studien verdeutlicht ... dem Leser helfen, kleinere statistische Tests selbst durchzufuhren und es ihm erleichtern, bei schwereren Fragen mit dem Statistiker zu kommunizieren." (Dr. med. Peter Bannas, in: Die Hellsten Koepfe fur die Radiologie hellste-koepfe.de, August 2011)
