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.

Key Features
    • User-friendly format: readers will be able to use the text to seamlessly explore the concepts between normal anatomy and abnormal radiographic appearances
    • Systematic approach provided for each common radiographic projection
    • Online case studies for readers to test and apply their clinical knowledge
    • Key important learning points (‘Insights’)
    • Annotated radiographic images and examples to support learning
Author Information

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




4- Upper limb

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.
