  4. Fran Fleishman MS

    Fabulous, I’ve been wanting a course on xray interpretation.
    The information is organized well, and Susan speaks in a very knowledgeable but user-friendly way.
    To make it even better, I think the xrays should be larger. The zoom on my DVD player helps but often puts the image off center or completely out of the picture.
    You do great work,
    Sincerely,
    Fran
