cover - st bridget x-ray centre radiological cases

This text presents some of the notable cases examined in this centre in the last 6 years, since the acquisition of digital radiography and image archiving system. Some of the cases have been selected for their uniqueness, others for their frequency but each highlights the power of observation and logical analysis using basic radiological tools for the most part.

Each case is presented with the description of the available images on presentation in our facility as requested by the referring physician followed by differential diagnoses consideration and further imaging and management direction advice as would be the case in a normal clinical setting when evaluating a clinical problem. The continuing relevance of basic radiologic tools including plain films, contrast examinations and fluoroscopy is demonstrated and which remains of utmost importance in this part of the world with rising poverty and technological as well as infrastructural challenges. Furthermore each case serves as a focus for stimulating the reader to deeper and wider academic inquiry.

A didactic section on musculoskeletal tumours and tumour-like conditions using the multi-modality approach has been added by one of the authors practicing in the United States of America.

The website – https://www.stbridgetsradiology.com serves as a portal for the continuous upload of notable cases examined at the centre as they present on a regular basis.
