Because of the availability of powerful computational techniques, new modality
techniques such as Computer-Aided Tomography (CAT), Magnetic Resonance
Imaging (MRI) and others, and because of the new techniques of imaging processing
(machine vision), the lives of many patients will be saved, and the quality of
all our lives improved. This marriage of powerful computer technology and medical
imaging has spawned a new and growing generation of young dynamic doctors
who hold PhDs in physics and/or computer science, along with their MDs.
Clinical Skills was the inspiration of Profesor Robert Turner. Roger
Blackwood was his senior registrar in Oxford when, together, they
planned and wrote the first edition. Roger Blackwood took his clinical
skills into cardiology and has remained an inspirational teacher to many
medical students and MRCP candidates. Sadly, Robert Turner died

Emergencies in medicine are difficult on two fronts: they may challenge both the
health of the patient and the skills of the doctor in charge. If the latter, the former
may deteriorate rapidly. Thus, the definition of an emergency indeed depends on
who is facing it. As we mature along our clinical pathways of education, training, and
experience, the risk of going through a personal professional emergency is continuously
reduced. Nevertheless, throughout our medical career, accurate self-assessment
and subsequent control of our actions remain our most important qualities.
