    The ability to interpret and synthesise medical data is essential for doctors, yet it is a skill which can be difficult to master. Data Interpretation Made Easy focuses on developing this skill by presenting an array of case-based themes considering interpretation of blood results, X-rays, ECGs and CT images in medicine with discussion of evidence-based practice. The concise, list-based text aids easy comprehension and images provide the much needed link from raw data to evidence-based care and management. This highly practical book is essential reading for undergraduate medical students preparing for examinations. It is also ideal for junior doctors needing a succinct guide to data interpretation for everyday use. 'Dr Neel Sharma's latest venture on data interpretation has dozens of credible clinical scenarios covering many key areas of clinical medicine. And you will certainly feel challenged, as he leaves it up to you to diagnose and devise the treatment plan.' From the Foreword by Tiago Villanueva
