When a patient presents to the emergency department, in the GP practice or in the outpatient clinic with a range of clinical signs, the chest x-ray is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools available to the attending physician. Accurate interpretation and understanding of the chest x-ray is therefore a crucial skill that all medical students and junior doctors must acquire in order to formulate quickly an appropriate management plan. Making Sense of the Chest X-ray is here to help.

The second edition of this well-received pocket guide remains the perfect introduction to the subject. Written from a problem-oriented approach, the author shares his extensive experience of teaching this subject, with 'real life' scenarios interspersed throughout the text. Making Sense of the Chest X-ray offers:

* advice on when to seek additional/expert opinion

* suggestions on how to deal with particularly difficult areas

* an emphasis on the link between radiographic appearance and clinical finding
