The Unofficial Guide to Radiology' has been endorsed by the Royal College of Radiologists, The British Institute of Radiology and the British Medical Association. It teaches systematic analysis of the three main types of X-rays: chest, abdominal and orthopedic, with additional chapters looking at all the other main radiology tests such as CT and MRI. The layout is designed to make the book as relevant to clinical practice as possible; the X-rays are presented in the context of a real life scenario. The reader is asked to interpret the X-ray before turning over the page to reveal a model report accompanied by a fully annotated version of the X-ray. To further enhance the clinical relevance, each case has 5 clinical and radiology-related multiple-choice questions with detailed answers. These test core knowledge for exams and working life, and illustrate how the X-ray findings will influence patient management. This book has relevance beyond examinations, for post graduate further education and as a day-to-day reference for professionals.

"Which radiographs from each system are most likely to be presented in exams? This excellent book presents the classics, and at one level this makes it a high-yield textbook that will be extremely valuable to medical students and junior doctors. What is especially striking is the definition and clarity of the illustrations, with on-image labelling enabling one to be absolutely certain of which is the endotracheal tube, the nasogastric tube and the central line, for example." Bob Clarke, Associate Dean,Professional Development, London. Director, Ask Doctor Clarke Ltd. "Radiology is a constant challenge for students and doctors in busy clinical units: having a good command of the essentials is a real advantage. This book is well-presented and very accessible. The annotated examples provide realistic challenges with immediate feedback. It didn't take long before I felt better prepared for my next ward round!" Simon Maxwell, Professor of Student Learning, University of Edinburgh It covers many imaging modalities and presents them in a systematic order to give you a clear approach to interpreting what you see. Detailed pictures along the way point out normal anatomical features as well as deformities and anomalies. Perhaps one of the biggest strengths of this book is the cases section, allowing you to practice not only interpreting high quality images but also to link them to a case history. The questions that follow not only test your radiology, but also your understanding of signs, symptoms, underlying pathophysiology and management of the condition. As well as detailed answers in each section, the book also shows you the best way to present each case, whether in an OSCE situation or on a ward round. The easy of use, detailed pictures and emphasis on key points of this one should cement it as the number one undergraduate book for radiology. James Brookes, Medical Student
