Case Study: Imaging, Differential Diagnosis, and Discussion Presented by the Duke Radiology Department It has been recognized for a long time as one of the standards in board review, and it is a well-known adjunct to the popular and well-attended board review course that is presented by the distinguished Department of Radiology at Duke University. The 2nd edition can be downloaded as a PDF file. The updated second edition of this case-based review ebook is an essential resource for success for radiology fellows, residents, and practicing radiologists who are preparing for certification tests (the present ABR Part II oral; the upcoming ABR Core and Certifying; MOC and CAQ). Close to three hundred patient cases are presented in a format that is consistent with the way in which residents are instructed to work through patient cases. Each case includes a clinical history, bulleted points, and pertinent photos detailing the differential diagnosis. The book is organized according to the regions of the body and includes chapters on nuclear medicine and interventional radiology. The actual diagnosis, along with significant clinical and radiologic details concerning the diagnosis, as well as indicated readings, come next after this section. A brand new chapter on cardiac imaging has been added to this updated edition as well.
