DescriptionRadiology plays an invaluable role in the initial diagnosis and subsequent management of patients and this fully revised and updated new edition of Lecture Notes: Radiology presents the essential core knowledge needed by medical students, junior doctors on the Foundation Programme, specialist nurses and staff in the radiology department.
Organized by body systems, it provides a fundamental understanding of radiology as it focuses on imaging techniques, basic film interpretation, and specialized radiological investigation. It emphasizes the pattern of disease as seen on commonly used X-rays and contrast examinations, with explanatory notes on further investigations by imaging techniques such as ultrasound, CT and MRI.
Lecture Notes: Radiology contains new and updated images and illustrations, an expansion of the skeletal trauma section, 'Key points' boxes, and increased use of bulleted text, making it ideal for study and revision.
