Interpreting chest X-rays can seem baffling and intimidating for senior medical students and newly qualified doctors. This highly illustrated guide provides the ideal introduction to chest radiology. It uses 100 clinical cases to illuminate a wide range of common medical conditions, each illustrated with a chest X-ray and a clear description of the significant diagnostic features and their clinical relevance. Where appropriate CT scans and bronchoscopic imaging are also included as part of the investigation. Pulmonary medicine is largely based on a strong foundation on the plain chest radiograph. Indeed chest radiography is the single most common investigation done in hospital practice. This illustrated collection of case studies will help make the learning process easier and more enjoyable and less painful. As well as illuminating pearls of core knowledge in chest X-ray interpretation, it highlights some of the pitfalls that might wrong-foot the inexperienced practitioner.
Radiology now forms part of the core curriculum and is assessed in the final medical OSCE. This book includes 100 radiology cases that medical students are likely to encounter in their exams. The book is primarily image based, presenting a clinical history, description of findings and discussion for each image. Critically, the images include modern techniques such as CT and MRI in addition to more traditional photography, and the book helps students recognise and interpret abnormal image findings as well as increasing their factual knowledge. This book is vital reading for final year medical students approaching their final OSCE, and also for junior doctors who need a radiology quick reference guide in clinical practice. It can also be used to supplement MRCS Picture Questions Book 1 (see below) by candidates revising for the MRCS examination.

Radiological imaging is now accessible to a wide range of healthcare workers, many of whom are increasingly taking on extended roles. This book will equip all healthcare professionals, including medical students, chest physicians, radiographers and radiologists, with the techniques and knowledge required to interpret plain chest radiographs. It is not an exhaustive text, but concentrates on interpretive skills and pattern recognition – these help the reader to understand the pitfalls and spot the clues that will allow them to correctly interpret the chest X-rays they will encounter in their daily practice. The book features over 300 high quality images, along with a range of case story images designed to enable readers to test and develop their interpretation skills. Interpreting Chest X-Rays is a handy ready reference that will help you to avoid making errors interpreting chest X-rays and decide, for example: * if a temporary pacing wire has been inserted correctly * whether the shadows you can see are real abnormalities * if all chest tubes and lines are located appropriately in an ITU patient * what further imaging may assist interpretation of an apparent abnormality * whether a post-surgical chest is significantly abnormal * what organism might be causing an infection * why a patient is short of breath * whether patient positioning accounts for an abnormal appearance on a chest X-ray * what impact radiographic technique has had on the appearance of pathology
