  • About this book

  • The use of line drawings to aid X-ray interpretation is a central aspect in the identification of important features
  • A unique, pocket-sized book
  • Double-page layout allows explanatory text to be placed opposite the images
  • Schematic explanation of the observations is written in a simple but comprehensive manner

In an emergency, junior doctors, often early in their training, will be called upon to give an opinion concerning an X-ray. This unique pocket-sized book, that uses line diagrams to explain X-rays, offers an ideal place for them to turn.

Each line drawing has been composed by a professional artist and greatly assists in producing rapid understanding of an individual X-ray.

The book features a double page layout, which allows explanatory text to be placed opposite the images.

In addition, a schematic explanation of each observation is written in a simple but comprehensive manner so that readers can quickly grasp the material.

This book is intended mainly for trainee surgeons who are required to interpret X-rays as part of their accident and emergency training.
