Saunders; 4th edition
The fourth edition of Felson’s Principles of Chest Roentgenology: A Programmed Text, written by Goodman, continues to be the essential foundational text for chest radiology despite its user-friendly format (available in PDF). The process of analyzing and reading radiologic images is made much simpler by the inclusion of the most recent imaging techniques and vocabulary, as well as by its distinctively programmed learning method, which is provided in a highly interactive PDF format. Review questions in the form of multiple-choice questions accompany high-quality photographs, illustrations, and diagrams to help students better understand important ideas. You can hone your skills and boost your confidence by using the additional online images and self-tests that are available.
- Check out this book on your preferred electronic reading device!
- Using the well-known “programmed learning” method, which emphasizes both speedy learning and easy reference, you can rapidly acquire the fundamentals of radiology that you need to be familiar with, such as the underlying science, picture interpretation, and vocabulary.
- Examine standard radiographs alongside MR and CT pictures in order to get a better understanding of the differences between the modalities.
- View full clinical images that include all of the image types that will be on the boards, such as digital quality radiographs and the debut of PET imaging, as well as more advanced imaging than ever before, including CT and MRI scans.
- You may put your knowledge to the test and get a feel for what it’s like to take the exam by using information that has been revised to coincide with the new multiple-choice format of the Board exam. This will make preparation and review much simpler.
- Take use of the richer interactive options provided in the form of an electronic book (PDF).
“This volume is not simply for those who aspire to be thoracic imagers; rather, it is an absolute requirement for everyone who views himself as a competent general radiologist.” — Dr. John Reid, Borders General Hospital, for RAD Magazine; month and year unknown; December 2015
“Overall, this is a fantastic method to get started in the field of thoracic radiology, as well as a particularly efficient and pleasurable approach to learn how to read chest X-rays. The learning method that is based on quizzes compels you to think for yourself and makes it impossible to read without having to digest the information that is being presented to you. – Acta Radiologica (2015; Vol. 56(12) NP5)
