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.
