Radiographic Interpretation

Here you can find a complete list of all the pages with radiographic description of entities seen on radiographs with examples.  Some entities will have more examples than others due to the frequency with which they are seen in a clinical setting.  This site is a work in progress and will continue to grow with more entities and radiographic examples as I acquire them.  Enjoy!
