Item description for Understanding X-Rays: A Synopsis of Radiology by Fred Van Gelderen...
Understanding X-Rays: A Synopsis of Radiology is very different from other texts. This easy-to-read handbook begins with the basics on how to "understand" X-rays and then goes on to discuss the details. It is a practical reference guide, easy to carry to ward rounds and tutorials, and despite its small size, contains a wealth of information. Radiologists are often consulted regarding normal variants that mimic disease, and these are discussed in detail. Exhaustive lists of differential diagnoses are featured. The X-ray quizzes are informative yet challenging. This synopsis will be invaluable forday-to-day hospital work and in preparing for qualifying examinations.

Expected more Aug 20, 2007
The book is not very visual except for the quiz at the end of five chapters. More radiograph figures adjacent to descriptions are needed. It doesn't help that the cost of the book was dropped by $17 after I bought it. Also there's no Index.
