Mistakes can easily be made when interpreting emergency radiographs. The situation is often made more difficult by the urgency and circumstances in which the radiograph has to be evaluated.
This book describes a systematic approach to assessing radiographs, instructing you on the appearances of radiological abnormalities and comparing these with normal radiographs.
Each chapter covers a different part of the body and leads you through the anatomy, followed by the different types of view to request, the system of assessment itself, and pitfalls to avoid.
With its clear explanation, combined with over 400 radiographs and illustrations, this essential book provides a great source of examples that can be referred to in the heat of an emergency.
It will be invaluable for accident and emergency staff, trainee radiologists, medical students, nurses, and radiographers.
