    Book details

‘Understanding X-Rays’ is a book planned to fill the gap between basic and advanced knowledge of Radiology.It meets the moment when a - diologist is not available,and a diagnosis is required. Each section is introduced by a chapter on ‘how to ‘understand’X-rays’, encouraging a complete and systematic approach to radiographs focusing on every part of the image.A three-point approach is presented,consi- ing of the ‘quick look’,a systematic detailed scrutiny of the images,and - nally a brief look at ‘review areas’. Most difficulties in interpreting radiographs do not arise from iden- fying the clearly normal or abnormal,but the huge grey expanse between. Therefore,normal variants that may masquerade as disease are discussed in detail.Likewise,common appearances,often incidental and unimp- tant,are covered thoroughly,as these appearances can readily be misint- preted as being due to significant disease. The chapters on disease entities follow a logical sequence of conge- tal, traumatic, infective, neoplastic and miscellaneous conditions. Po- traumatic sequelae are discussed in much greater detail in each section. To limit the handbook to a pocket-sized format,certain aspects of Radi- ogy receive scant attention and some are excluded altogether.(The foll- ing are not included: physics,instrumentation,machine construction,- teriography,and ultrasound imaging of obstetrics, the eye and vascular structures.Aspects such as congenital heart disease,bone dysplasias,bone tumours and barium meal examinations are not discussed at any length).

Review Text

  • By roberta bently on August 20, 2007

    The book is not very visual except for the quiz at the end of five chapters. More radiograph figures adjacent to descriptions are needed. It doesn't help that the cost of the book was dropped by $17 after I bought it. Also there's no Index.
