Description


The Unofficial Guide to Radiology' has been endorsed by the Royal College of Radiologists, The British Institute of Radiology and the British Medical Association. It teaches systematic analysis of the three main types of X-rays: chest, abdominal and orthopedic, with additional chapters looking at all the other main radiology tests such as CT and MRI. The layout is designed to make the book as relevant to clinical practice as possible; the X-rays are presented in the context of a real life scenario. The reader is asked to interpret the X-ray before turning over the page to reveal a model report accompanied by a fully annotated version of the X-ray. To further enhance the clinical relevance, each case has 5 clinical and radiology-related multiple-choice questions with detailed answers. These test core knowledge for exams and working life, and illustrate how the X-ray findings will influence patient management. This book has relevance beyond examinations, for post graduate further education and as a day-to-day reference for professionals.

About the Author


Mark Rodrigues is a Radiology Registrar based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. He graduated from Medicine with Honors from Edinburgh University and has published and presented research extensively and internationally in the fields of radiology and medical education. Whilst working as a junior doctor in Edinburgh Mark helped write The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs. He has subsequently been a chapter author in the follow up books The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs: Candidate Briefings, Patient Briefings and Mark Schemes, and The Unofficial Guide to Prescribing. Mark is also involved in teaching medical students through his roles as a Clinical Tutor Associate for the University of Edinburgh and lecturer for the Edinburgh Student Radiology Society. Zeshan Qureshi is a Paediatrician based at Great Ormond Street and the Institute of Child Health. He graduated with distinction from the university of Southampton, and has published and presented research work extensively and internationally in the fields of pharmacology and medical education. Whilst working in Edinburgh he was part of the leadership team developing a near peer teaching programme, where by junior doctors, throughout south east scotland, were both trained to teach, and delivered teaching across every hospital in the area. This book is an extension of this philosophy: that junior doctors and fresh graduates know how to express complex ideas in order for it to be easily understood from a students perspective. That junior doctors can teach, and write in a complimentary way to senior doctors: one that is friendly and fun, easy to read and relevant to both exams, and the day to day to life of junior doctors. Following the success of The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs and the feedback from the students being taught, The Unofficial Guide to Radiology was developed. This book extensively expands on the radiology chapter in The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs, providing a comprehensive learning resource for X-ray interpretation for medical students, junior and hospital doctors and nurse practitioners.
