No matter what area of medicine they intend to practice, medical students really need to have a fundamental understanding of radiography. Patients in hospitals are increasingly being subjected to imaging procedures of many kinds, ranging from simple film to CT and MRI scans. As new technologies and methods become available and the field of radiology expands in scope, the curriculums of medical schools are beginning to reflect the rising significance of radiology. This ebook, titled Radiology for Undergraduate Finals and Foundation Years: Key Topics and Question Types (PDF), offers a combination of case-based instruction, structured questions, and self-assessment procedures that are pertinent to the ever-changing current curriculum. It includes essential topics such as the understanding of when to investigate a patient, which modality provides the best answer to a certain clinical query, and how to correctly read chest and abdominal x-rays. In addition to students in their final year of medical school, postgraduate junior doctors in their first and second years of residency, as well as those in their earlier clinical years who are interested in expanding their radiological expertise, will find this ebook useful. In addition to this, it offers a fundamental radiology review that is helpful for early MRCS and MRCP examinations.
It is a fantastic privilege that I have been invited to write a foreword for such a remarkable and unique piece of writing. This book covers a wide variety of themes that are quite applicable in today's world, which is a reflection of the writers' no-nonsense approach to writing the book. The illustrations are of a high quality, and the accompanying text is not only instructive but also gets right to the point.' — Excerpt from the Foreword written by Professor Adrian K. Dixon
