Practical, handy guide to chest x-ray interpretation, designed for medical students and foundation doctors on the go and highly affordable for those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment. Highly affordable price and convenient pocket size format - fits in back pocket! Indispensable aid: all hospital doctors deal with chest radiographs but students and junior doctors lack confidence interpreting them. Logical, sequential content: relevant basic science; understanding normal results and the building blocks of abnormal results; then clinical disorders. Clinical disorders illustrated by a full page chest radiograph with brief accompanying text on facing page that clearly identifies the defining features of the X-Ray (in other words, what is it that makes this pneumothorax?).
Chest X-Ray Made Easy 4th Edition

Exercises in Chest X-Ray Diagnosis
John A. Elliott
Exercises in Chest X-Ray Diagnosis serves as a teaching aid for postgraduates working towards the MRCP and FRCP. This book provides a test of clinical knowledge and competence and for this reason a simple question and answer format has been adopted. This book is organized into two parts. Part 1 consists of questions related to the abnormalities on the chest film that may reflect local thoracic disorders or may mirror systemic disease processes. Part 2 presents the answers to the exercises and provides brief clinical reviews and short accounts of radiological differential diagnosis. This book is a valuable resource for physicians and radiologists in training.

Respiratory Disease in Pregnancy
by Stephen E. Lapinsky
Respiratory diseases affect a large proportion of the population and can cause complications when associated with pregnancy. Pregnancy induces profound anatomical and functional physiological changes in the mother, and subjects the mother to pregnancy-specific respiratory conditions. Reviewing respiratory conditions both specific and non-specific to pregnancy, the book also addresses related issues such as smoking and mechanical ventilation. Basic concepts for the obstetrician are covered, including patient history, physiology and initial examinations. Topics such as physiological changes during pregnancy and placental gas exchange are discussed for the non-obstetrician. Guidance is practical, covering antenatal and post-partum care, as well as management in the delivery suite. An essential guide to respiratory diseases in pregnancy, this book is indispensable to both obstetricians and non-obstetric physicians managing pregnant patients.
Imaging in Pediatric Pulmonology
Imaging in Pediatric Pulmonology is a definitive reference to imaging and differential diagnosis for pediatric pulmonology. Diseases and disorders seen in everyday clinical practice are featured, including infections, developmental disorders, airway abnormalities, diffuse lung diseases, focal lung diseases, and lung tumors. Organized to support the clinical thought process, the text begins with a series of clinical algorithms that provide a starting point for formulating a diagnosis. The physician will be able to identify the differentials by symptom complex and accordingly determine what test would be effective and how to proceed. The balance of the book is image-based and presents a comprehensive, multi-modality approach, with an emphasis on plain film and cross-sectional imaging. The imaging sections are correlated with pathology and clinical findings to help readers learn what the modality of choice can enable them to see.
