Very good but Dr. Verma speaks too fast and does not really go in details. More imaging examples would be nice!

Slides are well constructed and easy to follow. Hetal explains subjects as well as minor details really well and in a way that they are easy to understand. Some radiological pictures could be explained in more detail.
