Abdominal X–rays for Medical Students is a comprehensive resource offering guidance on reading, presenting and interpreting abdominal radiographs. Suitable for medical students, junior doctors, nurses and trainee radiographers, this brand new title is clearly illustrated using a unique colour overlay system to present the main pathologies and to highlight the abnormalities in abdomen x–rays.
Abdominal X–rays for Medical Students:
- Covers the key knowledge and skills necessary for practical use
- Provides an effective and memorable way to analyse and present abdominal radiographs – the unique ′ABCDE′ system as developed by the authors
- Presents each radiograph twice, side by side: the first as seen in the clinical setting, and the second with the pathology clearly highlighted
- Includes self–assessment to test knowledge and presentation technique
With a systematic approach covering both the analysis of radiographs and next steps mirroring the clinical setting and context, Abdominal X–rays for Medical Students is a succinct and up–to–date overview of the principles and practice of this important topic.
