Chest X-Rays for Medical Students: CXRs Made Easy 2nd Edition


Chest X-rays for Medical Students offers a fresh analytical approach to identifying chest abnormalities, helping medical students, junior doctors, and nurses understand the underlying physics and basic anatomical and pathological details of X-ray images of the chest.

  • Aligns with the latest Royal College of Radiologists’ Undergraduate Radiology Curriculum
