Cover of Chest X-rays for Medical Students Book


This new second edition includes significant revisions, improved annotations of X-rays, expanded pathologies, and numerous additional high-quality images. A comprehensive one-stop guide to learning chest radiograph interpretation.

  • Provides a memorable ‘ABCDE’ system to systematically review X-rays as developed by the authors.  Perfect for examinations, vivas and OSCEs.

  • Explains how to recognise basic radiological signs, pathology and patterns associated with common medical conditions with lots of example images.

  • Presents each radiograph twice, side-by-side: the first as seen in the clinical setting, and the second with the pathology clearly highlighted in colour.  Gone are the days of trying to figure out what that small arrow is pointing to, as seen in other books!

  • Includes self-assessment tests and presentation exercises to test knowledge and presentation technique.
