||This book provides a portable aid to the interpretation of a
range of plain radiographs, many of which will be have to be interpreted by the
admitting or on-call ward doctor. Plain X-rays are often the first
investigation carried out on patients presenting acutely, in all specialties.
Their interpretation is of paramount importance, as an accurate diagnosis will
guide further management and investigation in these patients. The book will
also help to guide initial further management, as well as guide the need for
further imaging. The book's layout enables easy and quick reference, with a
radiograph of each condition together with a succinct description of the
clinical signs, radiological signs and suggested further management of each
life threatening condition.
