Description

The book takes doctors through the steps of identifying and interpreting the abnormalities that show up on a chest x-ray film. Chest X-Ray Made Easy begins by stressing on simple things such as checking the name and date on the X-Ray record. It explains how to check the technical quality of the film and how to do a preliminary scan of the whole film to note down first impressions of any possible abnormalities. Doing this first scan and noting down impressions, say the authors, will help the doctors check on the possibility of more than one single problem. It will prevent them from getting obsessed over one abnormality and ignoring others. The book also asks the doctor to note down a basic description of the abnormality. For instance, remembering what drew the clinician’s attention to it in the first place. Maybe it was too large, or it was too black or white in the film or it was in the wrong place. The authors also go into the process of localising the lesion. They describe how to determine where exactly it is located, whether in the chest wall or in the mediastinum or in the lung. Chapter 2 shows how to pinpoint the location of the lesion inside the heart or the lung. The eighth chapter explains how to do this within the mediastinum and the next chapter describes the process for localising the lesion in the ribs. The authors also stress the importance of the radiologist’s report on the film. The third chapter examines CT scans and how to interpret these composite images. Chest X-Ray Made Easy takes up different signs of abnormality. It shows how to go deeper into them and track down the specific abnormality that these might indicate. It explains the concepts of the white and the black lung fields, the abnormal heart shadow and the abnormal hilum. It shows how to study and interpret the widened mediastinum, abnormal ribs, or soft tissues. The book also discusses how to track down possible hidden abnormalities.
