This book is an informed, educational and abundantly illustrated guide to the imaging knowledge that medical students in the clinical years of their undergraduate studies will be required to get to know, understand and recall in order to negotiate successfully their finals exams. Via the popular and instructive case-based format, readers are guided through 100 cases chosen specifically to reflect what the authors consider is necessary knowledge for finals, and imaging modalities that students can reasonably expect to encounter with a resulting emphasis on plain film with some CT and MR.
