Radiology plays a central role in diagnosis, management and even treatment of a patient's condition. The increasing importance of radiology in clinical medicine has led to the inclusion of the subject in medical school curricula worldwide. Most radiology teaching for medical students is conducted around films of real patients on the ward or in tutorial groups within the radiology department itself and, by reflecting this method of learning, the approach of this book will be familiar to students studying radiology at undergraduate level. The book adopts a systemic approach to cover the commonest clinical problems that are encountered on the wards, in tutorials and in examinations. Clear radiographs are each presented with brief reports and an accompanying discussion of the diagnosis, differential diagnosis and potential further investigations. This new edition is enhanced with many new images, and all are now clearly labelled and arrowed to highlight significant diagnostic features.
‘Radiology conjures up a plethora of reactions in medical students, from an inquisitive interest to pure hatred. Most share one thing in common, a wish to be somewhere else when a clinician asks you to present and interpret a radiological image. Those moments of motionless dread need not be so; Radiology Made Easy is here to help us all! This book is a splendid overview of a host of common imaging techniques and findings, including plain radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and ultrasound.’ BMJ
‘ … as an introduction to radiology I think it succeeds very well. It is up to date and nicely illustrates the scope of radiology and the central role it plays in good clinical practice.’ RAD Magazine
