Radiology Interpretation Made Easy: One Hundred Most Common Diseases Studied

by G Balachandiran

This book is intended for a busy general practitioner who will find this of immense help. The first decision maker regarding the patient is the GP. All the cases have specific X-rays/imaging films, followed by line diagram which highlight the specific diagnostic signs/pointers. Each X-ray/image has been interpreted for the benefit of the GPs and comments are given to give more insight into the case. There are also useful algorithms/or work up schedules for certain specific clinical situations, which I think the GPs would find it very useful. Most of the cases selected are the ones which a general practitioner meets in day-to-day practice. Next to plain X-rays, ultrasonography is widely available and used in daily practice. Both X-rays and ultrasonography themselves could diagnose more than 83 percent cases. The aim of this short book is to familiarise the busy general practitioner with what to look for in any radiological procedure. After going through this book if a GP gains enough confidence in interpretating images then my aim is almost fulfilled. After reading this book it is requested that a GP studies the image himself before studying the report given by a radiologist. This may help him gain more confidence.
