Top medic publishes book on chest x-rays

A new book written for frontline healthcare professionals has been published by Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital emergency medicine consultant Dr Paul Jenkins.

Dr Jenkins's book, titled Making Sense of the Chest X-Ray, is published by Hodder Arnold, and has been written for doctors and other health professionals involved in the assessment, diagnosis and management of patients.

Dr Jenkins has a wealth of experience in respiratory and emergency medicine and is a part of the team that established the country's first Medical Assessment Unit at the old N&N more than ten years ago.

Paul, who is also president of the Society for Acute Medicine, said; ” I hope that the book will be useful to many health care groups. It is intended to be a practical guide and combines a clinical and radiographic approach to the management of patients. The messages should be as pertinent to the undergraduates in our new medical school as they are for qualified staff. Waterstone's at UEA have a supply. As yet though I haven't heard regarding short-listing for the Whitbread or Booker Prizes!”
