    Anyone have any thoughts on a small handbook to help out with classifying fractures? Rads resident prepping for call and would like a small reference.

    I think this is more what you're looking for.

    Tolerances
    http://www.amazon.com/Tolerances-Scott-Nelson-Montri-Wongworawat/dp/1594100098

    It's a super succinct description of most of the commonly used classification systems and acceptable tolerances in orthopaedics. It is of note however that there are not many images, if that is what you are looking for as a radiology resident. Handbook of fractures is also good, but is more like an abbreviated textbook.
