Ref: SG1 Accident & Emergency Radiology : A Survival Guide - Raby, Berman, Morley & de Lacey
The 3rd edition of “ Accident & Emergency Radiology : A Survival Guide “ replaced the 2nd edition in the summer of 2014.
This book will be provided as part of the registration fee for the A&E Survival Courses for Doctors and ENPs. This allows participants to concentrate on the teaching rather than being distracted by taking notes.
The 3rd Edition represents a meticulous revision of both the text and the illustrations. Some of the alterations: the chapters' layout has been made particularly reader friendly; abnormalities are subdivided into those that are common and, separately, into those that are infrequent but essential to detect because of their clinical importance; key anatomical landmarks and descriptions are defined and explained by using innovative drawings and artworks created by Philip Wilson, a renowned medical artist.
Nevertheless, the authors have once again stuck to their principle objective: ie to assist all those who assess Emergency Department radiographs and ask the question . . . " these images look normal to me - but how can I be sure that I am not overlooking a subtle but clinically important abnormality? "
The 2nd edition won FIRST PRIZE in the Radiology section at the 2005 BMA Medical Book Competition. Comments from the BMA Judges included:
"The quality of the radiographs and the accompanying diagrams is outstanding . . . the distillation of key radiographic features of important conditions is brilliant . . . if it were made compulsory for all new SHOs to own and read this book it would probably do more to reduce the burden of medical negligence than any other clinical governance measure!"
Translations. The following versions have been available: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Greek, Polish, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified).
In the summer of 2014 the English version will be replaced by the - updated and improved - 3rd Edition.

A fit-in-your-pocket book. This compact Survival Guide won FIRST PRIZE in the Radiology section at the 2009 BMA Medical Book Competition. Comments from the BMA Judges included :
"This portable, economical reference helps you to build a strong foundation in chest x-ray interpretation. Many books dumb down their content and oversimplify concepts. This book successfully shows that a topic can be made accessible without being oversimplified - and, in fact, that explanation of the nuances can often make the topic " easier ". High quality drawings and digital chest x-rays . . . handy checklists and key references deliver all the assistance you need to enhance your interpretation skills. Well done to the authors."
