Chest X-Ray made easy 3rd Edition Ebook PDF download
The chest X-ray is one of the most frequently requested hospital inves- tigations and its initial interpretation is often left to junior doctors. Although there are a large number of specialist radiology textbooks, very few are targeted at junior doctors and medical students. This book was designed to ll this gap and make interpretation of the chest X-ray as simple as possible. It is not meant as an alternative to a radiological opinion but rather as a guide to making sense of the common abnor- malities one is likely to encounter on the wards, for speedy recognition of these will expedite effective treatment of the patient.
Following the success of the rst and second editions we have expanded the book but still kept it small enough to t in the pocket. Additional sections have been included and abnormalities under the diaphragm are now discussed. We have also included an introduction to thoracic CT scanning and highlighted the usefulness of these scans where appropriate. The book should remain a useful aid not just for medical students but also for nurses, physiotherapists and radiographers.
Chapters 1 and 2 provide some ground rules that must be applied when interpreting the chest X-ray. Chapter 3 onwards takes the readers through some of the most common abnormalities, arranged according to their X-ray appearance. Each topic contains an example X-ray with an explanatory legend and at the end extra learning points are dis- played in the shaded boxes. The outline drawings above the X-rays assist in the interpretation of the abnormality shown.
