X-Ray -Medical XRay Interpretation with 100+ Cases for Android

Developer's Description

X-Ray in Clinical Practice brings a deeper understanding of chest x-rays to the forefront, enabling doctors to make confident and accurate diagnoses across a range of medical situations. The principles and practice of acquisition of the chest X-ray are discussed, raising awareness of technical factors that may limit the extent of interpretation, to ensure that doctors-in-training take every precaution in avoiding the common pitfalls of misinterpretation.

The chest radiograph is a very commonly requested examination and it is probably the hardest plain film to interpret correctly. It is, however, often performed out of hours with interpretation undertaken by relatively junior members of staff, frequently with no senior radiological advice available.

The app features over 300 high quality images, along with a range of case story images designed to enable readers to test and develop their interpretation skills.

All the X-rays are accompanied by a simple line diagram outlining where the abnormality is.

Covers the full range of common radiological problems.

Includes valuable advice on how to examine an X-ray.

Assists the doctor in determining the nature of the abnormality.

Points the clinician towards a possible differential diagnosis.

Now presented in two-colour to enhance the appearance of the text.

New material includes an introduction to thoracic CT scanning indicating the usefulness of these scans where appropriate.

A chest X-ray test is a very common, non-invasive radiology test that produces an image of the chest and the internal organs. To produce a chest X-ray test, the chest is briefly exposed to radiation from an X-ray machine and an image is produced on a film or into a digital computer. Chest X-ray is also referred to as a chest radiograph, chest roentgenogram, or CXR.

By the end of this lecture, the learner will be able to:

Utilize a systematic and reliable approach in CXR evaluation

Correlate basic CXR findings with clinical evaluation in order to reach a diagnosis

In general, a chest X-ray test is a simple, quick, inexpensive, and relatively harmless procedure with minimal risk of radiation.
