Providing a valuable teaching resource, CHEST X-RAYS FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS (Wiley-Blackwell, September 2011) offers students, junior doctors, trainee radiologists, and nurses a basic understanding of the principles of chest radiology.
The book uses a unique method of overlays to demonstrate the areas of pathology. It emphasizes the need for a systematic approach (rather than pattern recognition) and includes advice on how to approach images for examination purposes. The text also includes a number of self assessment questions at the end.
Topics covered include:
- Hazards and precautions
- Tracheal deviation
- Consolidation & collapse
- Carinal angle
- Septal lines
- Foreign bodies and medical interventions
The text explains how to recognize basic radiological signs, pathology, and patterns associated with common medical conditions as seen on plain PA and AP chest radiographs. The book also presents each radiograph twice, side by side; once as would be seen in a clinical setting and again with the pathology clearly highlighted.
Ideal for study and clinical reference, CHEST X-RAYS FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS is the ideal companion for any medical student, junior doctor, or trainee radiographer. It would also be useful for physiotherapists and clinical nurse practitioners.
