Abstract:

Understanding X-Rays: A Synopsis of Radiology is very different from other texts. This easy-to-read handbook begins with the basics on how to "understand" X-rays and then goes on to discuss the details. It is a practical reference guide, easy to carry to ward rounds and tutorials, and despite its small size, contains a wealth of information. Radiologists are often consulted regarding normal variants that mimic disease, and these are discussed in detail. Exhaustive lists of differential diagnoses are featured. The X-ray quizzes are informative yet challenging. This synopsis will be invaluable for day-to-day hospital work and in preparing for qualifying examinations.
