Getting Started in Clinical Radiology: From Image to Diagnosis
I read the book for enjoyment and pleasure, as well as enlightenment. It was a delightful learning experience.--Thomas Lee Bucky, MDThis book teaches radiology in a way that mimics a lively setting on the wards. To have fun in learning the theoretical basis of imaging and the interpretation of radiographs and other modalities, in the context of clinical examination and findings, this is the book for you.The basics of imaging are described using analogies from daily life to make them as understandable and memorable as possible. The material of radiology is described using actual cases; the most common differential diagnoses are presented. A great amount of image material supports the learning process.A storyline runs through the book: four students in their final year of medical school are involved in active discussion of the cases, so that the reader also feels a part of the diagnostic process.
