Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is both instructive and a delight to read. How does it compare with similar books? There are no similar books. It is unique. Those who read and use this carefully written and illustrated book will emerge wiser and more skilful at interpreting one of the most interesting and most useful investigations at our disposal. I believe that the reader of this book will enjoy getting to grips with the chest X-ray and, in the process, become a better practitioner. This book is good value and would be useful for medical students, junior doctors, clinical nurses, physiotherapists and all those practitioners in primary care."Update (Journal for CME for GPs)
is a very useful and brief guide to interpreting the chest X-ray, aimed primarily at medical students and junior doctors. Like all good teachers, the authors have succeeded in making interpretation of the chest X-ray very simple and logical. They have dispensed with some confusing old-fashioned terminology and in the process helped to demystify the interpretation of the chest film. This is a concise, well-written, well-illustrated and, most importantly, pocket-sized book which medical students and junior doctors should find extremely useful."British Journal of Hospital Medicine
