Description

Praise for this book: "Innovative...the descriptions are accurate and concise - exactly what the examiner wants to hear...it would be difficult to find a better high-yield, high-quality textbook covering every subsection of the radiology oral board examination."--JAMAy Extremely useful...This review book is not only rewarding but also a resource radiologists can continue to refer to throughout their careers."--Academic Radiology "Provides an excellent selection of cases for sharpening diagnostic radiology considerations...useful for board preparation and review."--Doody's Review Top 3 Differentials in Radiology: A Case Review is a practical case-based reference that will enable radiologists and radiology residents to hone their skills in developing differential diagnoses for common imaging findings. Presented as unknowns, the cases are arranged into twelve main sections based on radiology subspecialties. The book presents each case as a two-page unit. The left page features clinical images and a brief description of the clinical presentation. The right page provides the key imaging finding, "Top 3" differential diagnoses, additional differential diagnoses, the final diagnosis, and imaging pearls. The final section of the book contains selected cases from all radiology subspecialties with distinctive imaging findings that should lead definitively to a single diagnosis. Features: 325 cases presented as unknowns to facilitate exam preparation Valuable high-yield review of all disease entities on the list of differential diagnoses for each case More than 700 high-quality images, including 74 in full color, depicting key radiographic findings Imaging pearls at the end of each case that highlight key teaching pointsWith its emphasis on gaining a solid foundation in differential diagnoses for the full range of key imaging findings encountered in clinical practice, this book is ideal for individuals preparing for the initial American Board of Radiology examination as well as more experienced radiologists preparing for recertification examinations.show more
