This book is designed to provide the medical student a simple yet systemized approach to interpreting the plain chest radiograph. The book teaches the normal anatomy as well as a systematic approach that can (and should) be used to evaluate every chest film. Full-color volume-rendered computed tomography (CT) images are used to help the student understand the anatomy.
The book is simple and easy to understand but lacks the necessary details of radiological assesment. There should have been more text concerning information about radiological pathology. The second point is that there is no need for two chest x-rays. The same x-ray has been printed twice.Only the marked image would be enough. Instead of the unmarked figure to place another chest x-ray would be better so that the reader would see different chest x-ray examples. There should have been more chest x ray figures concerning the frequently encountered diseases in daily clinical practice. Thirdly if the book is enlarged to contain more information and details I think it would become one of the best radiology books for students and residents.
