It is often said that interpretation of the chest radiograph is a dying art, and so it may be. Nonetheless, there are good reasons to keep alive the skills that allow accurate radiographic diagnosis. As the authors point out in their introduction, the chest radiograph is one of the most frequently ordered diagnostic tests, and this is likely to remain the case for the foreseeable future. Although the chest radiograph is ubiquitous, audits repeatedly reveal that the quality and accuracy of radiographic diagnosis is highly variable. The consequence of faulty interpretation can be unnecessary further investigations or, worse, failure to recognise important disease. This book goes a long way in helping both the novice and the more accomplished readers to hone their skills at reading chest radiographs.
The wealth of high quality teaching material in this carefully curated collection of 100 chest radiographs is impressive, and the authors have rightly concentrated on common, but clinically important, conditions. Another strength of this book is the repetition of a suggested scheme (given on the following page of each case) to ensure that the reader’s evaluation of the chest radiograph is truly comprehensive – after some time this approach becomes second nature, and a good habit.
Any skill worth acquiring requires time and practice. Working through this series of chest radiographs will increase your confidence and skill at chest radiograph interpretation (n.b. confidence and skill are not synonymous) and there is considerable fun to be had along the way.
