Duke Radiology Case Review: Imaging, Differential Diagnosis, and Discussion

This comprehensive and thoroughly illustrated radiology boards review was prepared by the prestigious Duke University Department of Radiology. The book follows a case study format that challenges the reader to reach a diagnosis by presenting images, findings, and differential diagnosis before revealing the actual diagnosis.Three hundred cases are presented that cover every area of radiology, including chest imaging, breast imaging, neuroradiology, musculoskeletal imaging, vascular imaging, gastrointestinal imaging, genitourinary imaging, pediatric radiology, nuclear radiology, and ultrasound. Each case begins with a patient history, several images, and descriptions of the imaging findings, and then proceeds to a differential diagnosis and the actual diagnosis. The diagnosis is followed by a Key Facts section, divided into Clinical Facts and Radiologic Facts, that features bulleted common-sense pointers regarding pathologic and radiologic manifestations of the disease. Each case ends with a list of references.
