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.

British Journal of Hospital Medicine

This 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.

Academic Radiology

While this pocket guide is certainly not all encompassing,it is a handy resource for medical students and beginning house staff. It can easily be read before a new rotation or service. It is not detailed or extensive enough for radiology residents who will be better served by a reference text, but the goal set forth by the authors is to provide students and beginning clinical house staff with a quick review of chest film interpretation and provide examples of commonly encountered chest radiograph abnormalities. With that in mind, the authors have accomplished their goal.

Clinical radiology

The authors have made an excellent job of presenting the chest radiograph in a simple and concise format that should prove a firm foundation for someone starting out in clinical medicine. This little book will hopefully encourage the reader to search out more comprehensive texts without a sense of dread.

Intensive and Critical Care Nursing

This small and informative text is an absolute must for all nurses practising in an intensive or high dependency care environment. I can find little to criticize about this book and will certainly be recommending it to both my under and postgraduate clinical students as a required text.
