Interpreting Trauma Radiographs
April 2008, Wiley-Blackwell
The book is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the overall framework of image reporting and interpretation: the radiologist’s perspective, the legal aspects, scientific background and the psychological nature of perception and interpretation. The second section focuses on image interpretation of regional anatomy, presented to support both reporting practitioners in training and those more experienced in reporting practice.
Interpreting Trauma Radiographs is an invaluable companion for qualified radiographers, radiographers in training, casualty medical officers, and other healthcare professionals, such as nurse practitioners, aspiring to interpret and report on radiographic images.

This text is a valuable source of information for the following professional groups. Radiographers experienced in skeletal reporting or undertaking 'red dot' reporting and those training for these roles; medical practitioners, in particular casualty residents who work in emergency departments; physiotherapists and other professional groups who have an interest in musculo-skeletal trauma and pathology. Finally, I would recommend that this book be available on the shelves of imaging departments' libraries for it will greatly help the specialist registrars in radiology. Section one would be particularly read with benefit by the latter."
