When a patient presents to the emergency department, in the GP practice, or in the outpatient clinic with a range of clinical signs, the chest x-ray is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools available to the attending physician.

Accurate interpretation and understanding of the chest x-ray is therefore a crucial skill that all medical students and junior doctors must acquire to formulate quickly an appropriate management plan. Making Sense of the Chest X-ray is here to help.

The second edition of this well-received pocket guide remains the perfect introduction to the subject. Written from a problem-oriented approach, the author shares his extensive experience of teaching this subject, with "real life" scenarios interspersed throughout the text. Making Sense of the Chest X-ray offers:

• Advice on when to seek additional/expert opinion
• Suggestions on how to deal with particularly difficult areas
• An emphasis on the link between radiographic appearance and clinical finding
