Product Description

From the Back Cover

Rapid acquisition and interpretation of radiographs, portable ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT) are now the mainstay of initial successful management of sick and traumatized patients presenting to Accident and Emergency Departments.

 The ABC of Emergency Radiology is a simple and logical step–by–step guide on how to interpret radiographs, US and CT. It incorporates all the latest technological advances, including replacing plain radiographs with digital radiographs, changes in imaging protocols and the role of portable US and multidetector CT.

 With over 400 illustrations and annotated radiographs, this thoroughly revised third edition provides more images, new illustrations, and new chapters on emergency US and CT that reflect current practice. Each chapter starts with radiological anatomy, standard and then additional views, a systematic approach to interpretation (ABC approach) and followed by a review of common abnormalities.

 The ABC of Emergency Radiology is an invaluable resource for accident and emergency staff, trainee radiologists, medical students, nurses, radiographers and all medical personnel involved in the immediate care of trauma patients.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have just finished a degree in diagnostic radiography and I received this book towards the end of my second year. After a quick flick through I was unsure the book would be of any use to me but this quickly changed as soon as the final year started and we studied a module in red dotting. From this point on the book got quite a lot of usage and was handy to take into placement to read through whenever I had a bit of spare time. It was invaluable in preparing for my CT head clinical assessment and I would recommend this book to other students in their final year of a diagnostic radiography degree.

It contains quite a lot of information and I found it helpful for refreshing my memory of the basics etc as well as picking up some quite important things. Although there is a fair amount of text and it may look overwhelming at first glance, once you start reading it is quite easy to follow and take in without the need to grab other books etc to look up related things (if that makes any sense). I didn't use it for anything else but it was a godsend for that module and my assessment.

The ABC series in general, are designed to take care and establish a set of requisite resources for GPs, registrars, junior doctors, doctors in training and all those in primary care as well a cross section of medical support staff. For the purposes of this book, this resource is aimed at Clinicians that work in and around the area of the Emergency Room, and those medical staffs involved in the direct care of trauma patients.

1. This 3rd edition is fully revised and updated

2. Highly illustrated - with 400 diagrams and interpreted radiographs, this delivers more images, and new illustrations

3. Designed as easy-to-use resource, interpretation for radiographers indeed anyone who needs quick acquisition and interpretation of radiographs.

This book then is a great introduction to radiology in its relation to initial impact and assessment in ER, this book is highly recommended.

Having worked in A/ E and still at times called to help out, I find it refs hong to have illustrated handy guide especially out of hours when radiologists are not available to comment and decisions need to be made on the spot. This comes with very well designed outlay with good illustrations and excellent explanations , diagnostics and differentials, I have really found them useful during busy A/e shift and handy to at time sues to explain to junior staff as well. Would recommend anyone who is at front line of trauma medicine

I received this title as a medical student in order to review it for the publisher. My first impressions of this title were that I wasn't exactly sure what the title was aiming to cover given it's name which can seem a bit misleading.

It is my opinion that this title is more a textbook of radiology covering most of the major presentations/systems that you could expect to encounter within the hospital. It is useful if you are a student and wish to familiarise yourself with pathological images caused by traumas and strokes for example. The disadvantage of this tile are that I feel they could have included an online addition that tested you on your knowledge of the topics covered in the title by doing MCQ/EMQ questions based upon the images within the text, thus not necessitating further images but allowing the student/doctor in some measure to assess their knowledge.

In conclusion if you are able to get this title out of your hospital/university library then I would strongly encourage you to do so as this I would hope should be useful for you!

This seems like an excellent book for learning and revision. Beautiful presentation, full colour with plenty of whitespace, so it's not at all cluttered. It is written in an easy to learn format, with good juxtaposition of radiographs and illustrations.
Well, those are my impressions flicking through it. I’m a lay person.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is quite a slim volume (175 pages) of roughly A4. It sprints though all of emergency radiology. It doesn't always seem clear to me where the book is aimed. As a chest physician I've gone straight to this chapter which starts with brief descriptions of the techniques of chest radiology and of CT scanning. It seems an odd place to put these. I'd have thought if you felt it necessary to explain the technique of CT this was best place in a generic chapter; thoracic CT doesn't work differently from CT of other bits and pieces. After a paragraph or two on normal anatomy, there is a sprint through comments on how to read plain films and CT using ABC guides as prompts, before a few comments on specific conditions. All of the text is brief, with a good deal presented as bullet points without additional explanation. A student will need another book to refer to, but a post graduate will find a fair bit of this blindingly obvious and I'm simply not sure who this is targeted at and supposed to help. The most likely use I guess might be as a revision aid. Lacking along the way is a diagram of normal structures at different levels on CT which I would have thought would be a useful item to be able to reference.
The text then is limited. That needn't matter in a textbook of radiology over much; radiology is of course about images and if reproduction of these is good the text matters less. There are a large number of images, and print quality is reasonable. However the images are small; of the order of a sixth of an A4 page which is really a little under that which is really useful for teaching purposes. In addition they aren't all well selected.
