About this book


Oral radiology board examinations are notoriously difficult and stressful, requiring a sound working knowledge of all the standard exams and disease pathology encountered in radiology practice. Radiology: The Oral Boards Primer concisely and comprehensively organizes the essential information needed to pass the board exams in diagnostic radiology in an easy to review and easy to memorize format. Drawing on pertinent and key differential diagnoses, the authors have assembled and organized the diagnoses most likely to appear on the exam and illustrated them with essential images to reinforce the findings associated with each differential. Additionally, with each finding set a mnemonic is provided to augment recall of any missing components of the differential that would be considered important. Because of their concise presentation, many cases can be examined, interpreted, completed, and memorized very rapidly in a single sitting. Since the majority of cases contain prototypical representations of pathology, the book also serves as an excellent reference during residency training, as well as a source for many years after the reader has taken and passed the oral board examination.
Thoughtfully designed for test success, Radiology: The Oral Boards Primer will greatly assist in the preparation for the American Board of Radiology examination and inspire the assuredness and confidence that comes from being superbly prepared.

"...provides a rapid review of many imaging patterns.  It would be most useful for third and fourth year residents; however, all residents would benefit from the case-based format." -Radiology
