Chest X-Ray Made Easy, 4th Ed.

This book describes the range of conditions likely to be encountered on the wards and guides the clinician through the process of examining and interpreting the film based on the appearance of the abnormality shown. It then assists the clinician in determining the nature of the abnormality and points the clinician towards a possible differential diagnosis. It covers the common radiological problems the junior doctors are faced with, starting with the appearance of the film, e.g. showing generalized shadowing or a coin lesion. It gives advice on how to examine an X-ray, how to check its technical quality and how to identify where the lesion is. All the X-rays are accompanied by a simple line diagram outlining where the abnormality is.
