Divided into 3 sections. The first section provides a description of the technology, the patient journey, how the x-ray image is created, and the elements needed for interpretation. The second section analyses how normal anatomical structures ap-pear on an x-ray and how pathology modifies that appearance. The third section concentrates on the interpretive process and spe-cific problems related to chest imaging. Throughout the book, the authors incorporate evidence-based tech-niques to enhance learning and skill development. The use best prac-tices in designing graphics for learning when creating the instruction-al images. The sections of the book are deliberately segmented and sequenced to facilitate transfer of concepts and skills. Each chapter has a structured introduction as an advanced cognitive organizer to help situate the material, as well as a case-based example to activate prior knowledge, provide authentic context, and reinforce the materi-al. To improve application of the knowledge in the clinical setting, the book is filled with valuable checklists and job aides that provide per-formance support tools
