Limb X-Ray Interpretation by Dorthe Larsen
Limb X-Ray Interpretation provides a comprehensive guide to limb X-ray trauma diagnosis. The content is separated into two distinct parts; part I addresses the technical and professional issues in trauma radiography, from the initial request for an examination to the final image, including the normal and abnormal appearance of bone on radiographs and the classifications of fractures. Part II is subdivided into distinct anatomical regions by chapter describing a systematic approach to the interpretation of X-ray images. Each chapter follows a similar format with core anatomy linked to the normal radiographic anatomy, using over 570 X-ray images and line drawings. The common and less common fractures, together with specific radiological signs of abnormalities, mechanism of injury and subsequent treatments are presented. This book is of great value to Emergency Nurse Practitioners, Accident and Emergency staff, radiographers, junior doctors, medical students, and physiotherapists.
