Radiology is an indispensable part of clinical medicine and the chest X-ray is the most commonly performed radiographic exam. It is usually recommended as the initial investigation when patients present with complaints of shortness of breath, persistent cough, chest pain or chest injury. The ability to analyse correctly, evaluate and understand this aspect of conventional radiology is critical for medical students entering their clinical years and for physicians throughout their career. "Chest X-Ray Made Easy" lives up to its title with clear, concise descriptions and explanations of standard view and speical view images. Divided into three sections, it helps the reader identify normal cardiothoracic anatomic structures, recognise radiograpic signs of lung pathologies, and correlate physical signs and symptoms of cardiopulmonary disease with the chest X-ray images. In a conveniently user-friendly format "Chest X-Ray Made Easy" will be an invaluable pocket reference for students and qualified physicians.
