Aids to Radiological Differential Diagnosis, 5th Edition
Stephen Davies, MA, MB, BChir, MRCP, FRCR
This popular resource assists readers in honing their knowledge of radiological differential diagnosis for the most commonly encountered conditions in all areas of the body. The first section presents lists of differential diagnoses, supplemented by notes on useful facts and discriminating factors. The second section offers detailed descriptions on the characteristic radiological appearance of more than eighty individual diseases. The result is a convenient study tool for exam preparation, as well as a helpful quick reference for clinical practice.
Contents revised and reduced to reflect current radiological practice.
Existing lists modernised to reflect modern imaging practice, particularly where technological advances have been made (eg multislice CT and PET CT).
Revised to take account of new imaging guidelines (eg Royal College of Radiologists: Making Best Use of the Radiology department; SIGN; NICE).
Journal references updated.
Increased number of diagrams.
Lists of differential diagnoses.
Notes on radiological apperances.
Ideal for preparation for radiological examinations.
Aids to Radiological Differential Diagnosis does exactly what it claims. The new edition is thoroughly revised and updated and now contains an extensive paediatric chapter. In particular, it will form an extremely popular companion to the film viewing section of the FRCR Part IIB examination in the UK. It is a book that I intend to keep close at hand.
