The Unofficial Guide to Radiology: 100 Practice Chest X Rays teaches systematic analysis of Chest X Rays. The layout is designed to make the book as relevant to clinical practice as possible; the X-rays are presented in the context of a real life scenario.
The reader is asked to interpret the X-ray before turning over the page to reveal a model report accompanied by a fully colour annotated version of the X-ray.
Uniquely, all cases provide realistic high quality X Ray images, are annotated in full colour, and are fully reported, following international radiology reporting guidelines.
This means the X Rays are explained comprehensively, but with clear annotation so that a complete beginner can follow the thinking of the expert.
This book has relevance beyond examinations, for post graduate further education and as a day-to-day reference for professionals.
Which radiographs from each system are most likely to be presented in exams? This excellent book presents the classics, and at one level this makes it a high-yield textbook that will be extremely valuable to medical students and junior doctors. What is especially striking is the definition and clarity of the illustrations, with on-image labelling enabling one to be absolutely certain of which is the endotracheal tube, the nasogastric tube and the central line, for example.
