Radiological Emergencies

Contains Ads

Radiology plays an integral role in various medical specialities, with Accident and Emergency (A&E) being no exception.The nature of A&E medicine is such that a clinician encounters a potentially huge variety of pathologies in any one shift. Consequently, the various radiological investigations requested in the A&E setting often form the cornerstone of accurate patient management.

Many established textbooks are available in Medicine, Surgery and Paediatrics for example,which detail the management of various disease processes.Similarly there are textbooks of radiology that detail the radiology of the same.However, it is not uncommon for a clinician to require both the management and radiology immediately to hand when confronted by a sick patient.This is where we hope this app comes in.

The app is divided into conveniently recognised body sections; head and face, cervical spine, thorax, abdomen, upper limb and lower limb.Within each section we have covered a ‘core’ set of diagnoses that regularly present themselves to A&E and, where possible, have subdivided each diagnosis according to characteristic, clinical features, radiological features and management.The supplied radiographs have been chosen both for their high quality and as excellent examples of the conditions being described.

We have intentionally avoided being over-expansive with the text in this app, as it is intended to be a concise overview to emergency radiology and is meant to help expedite a patient’s passage through the A&E setting. It is with this in mind that we feel this work is not only suited to both undergraduate students and doctors at all stages of their training, but also to A&E nurse practitioners and to other ancillary medical staff involved in emergency medicine.

The information provided in this app is well filtered and revised to accommodate the need to make it as easy to the users as possible, after all you wouldn't want to ditch your textbook only to pick up another in the name of a simple text.

We hope you find the app useful and worth your time, send us your feedback and suggestion on how to improve our app.

Lastly, please take a moment to rate this app if at all you find it beneficial.
