Introductory Medical Statistics, now in its third edition, is an introductory textbook on basic statistical techniques. It is written for physicians, surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, radiographers, hospital administrators, medical statisticians in training, biochemists, and other professionals allied to medicine. It is suitable as a teaching text for clinicians working towards their professional examinations. It is also suitable for Maters degree courses in medical physics.

The third edition has been extensively revised and expanded to include:

Clinical trial design and analysis] Multivariate analysis Cox proportional hazards model McNemar, Wicoxon, Mann-Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis, Mantel-Haenszel, and Kappa tests Kaplan-Meier survival rates Sensitivity and Specificity Specification of treatment success, cure, and quality of life Risk specification Case-control and cohort epidemiological studies Glossary of terms The major change has been the advent of personal computing, so people rely on the power of their machine, and its software to number crunch. What is missing is that the software may not use the appropriate statistical error standard - Dick Mould

Reviews of previous editions: A very readable introduction to medical statistics --Journal of the Royal College of Physicians A welcome addition to the literature available on elementary medical statistics --British Journal of Surgery The book is enlivened by the author's engaging sense of humour. He is to be congratulated on his highly original and elegant contribution to professional education in a sugject which would be much more widely understood and applied if his book achieves the circulation it deserves --British Medical Journal a very well organized and easy to follow treatment ... clear examples ... very useful and resaonably priced adidition to the working library of professionsals ... a good reference for health physicists. M T Ryan, Health Physics, Vol 76, No 1 January 1999 ... one of the best and most readable accounts of medical statistics for the 'non-statistically minded' doctor President of the Royal College of Radiologists ... one of the best presents for statisticians of the 21st century.
