Translated into over a dozen languages, this book has been widely praised for making interpretation of thechest X-ray as simple as possible. It describes the range of conditions likely to be encountered on the wards and guides the doctor through the process of examining and interpreting the film based on the appearance of the abnormality shown. It then assists the doctor in determining the nature of the abnormality and points the clinician towards a possible differential diagnosis. It covers the common radiological problems the juniordoctors are faced with starting with the appearance of the film, e.g. showing generalised 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.
From the reviews: “This book provides basic information on ECG analysis as well as pathophysiologic and electrophysiologic concepts. … Theintended audience includes students, midlevels, physicians in training, and clinicians interested in cardiovascular diseases. … Numerous illustrations and pictures are easy to understand and concepts are clearly detailed. The multiple examples, summary … of each chapter are helpful and well done. The quality of ECGs, teaching points, and overall content of this book is excellent, making it a valuable teaching aid for students and practitioners of cardiology.” (Timir Paul, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2009)
