Description

Interpreting X-ray images correctly is essential for diagnostic radiographers, as well as a widely used skill for emergency department doctors, nurse practitioners, and many other healthcare professions. This new title provides a systematic, methodical approach to musculoskeletal image interpretation and its role in the evaluation and treatment of injury.

A companion to the eighth edition of Bones and Joints, this book covers the basic principles for interpreting images and then follows a simple regional approach to common radiographic projections. It goes on to consider common and important fracture patterns and other injuries related to that region, as well as the differences between normal and abnormal images.

Image Interpretation is an ideal learning guide for undergraduates, those transitioning to graduate roles or clinical practice, and other healthcare professionals wanting to supplement their training.

  • 1- Principles of Image Interpretation

    Theory of image viewing (e.g. forming and interpreting patterns); principles of image interpretation when viewing radiographic images (e.g. satisfaction of search, systematic approaches/patterns); types and formats of image interpretation (e.g. preliminary clinical evaluation/comment, clinical reporting); structuring a comment

    2- Normal appearances of bones and joints

    Normal appearances of bones and joint; normal variants (including differentiating between normal variant and fracture).

    3- Fractures and Joint Trauma

    Biomechanics of trauma; patterns of injury; fracture types and healing; treatment

    Chapters 4-9 will all follow a similar format by addressing each bone/joint in turn by considering:

      • Systematic review of each bone/joint: how to assess, normal appearances/ measurements
      • Common normal variants
      • Patterns of injury
      • Common injuries; radiographic appearances supported by other modalities where appropriate

    Humerus, forearm, hand; elbow and wrist joints

    5- Shoulder girdle and thorax

    Clavicle, scapula, sternum, and ribs; shoulder, acromioclavicular, and sternoclavicular joints

    6- Lower limb

    Femur, tibia and fibula, foot; knee, ankle and foot joints

    7- Pelvic girdle

    Hip bones; hip joint

    8- Spine

    Cervical, thoracic, lumbar vertebrae; sacro-iliac joints

    9- Facial bones and mandible

    10- Practical applications of image interpretation

    CPD and audit of image interpretation practices. Role of artificial intelligence.
