Chapman & Nakielny's Aids to Radiological Differential Diagnosis, 6th Edition
Expert Consult - Online and Print
"This is a useful, pocket-sized book that is quick to reference and well-priced" RAD Magazine, Sept 14
Chapman and Nakielny’s Aids to Radiological Differential Diagnosis has become a classic resource for trainees and practitioners worldwide, to hone their knowledge of radiological differential diagnosis for the most commonly encountered conditions throughout the body. It is an invaluable quick-reference companion in everyday practice, as well as an essential study tool when preparing for the FRCR or similar examinations.
This new edition is thoroughly revised and updated in line with latest clinical practice, knowledge and guidelines. The first section presents lists of differential diagnoses, supplemented by notes on useful facts and discriminating factors. These assist with the systematic assessment of radiographs and images from other modalities. The second section offers detailed summaries of the characteristic radiological appearance of a wide range of clinical conditions.
New to this edition is complementary access to the complete, fully searchable eBook, making it even more practical to use than ever before, anytime, anywhere!Table of Contents

"The sixth edition of this well-known book sticks to its now familiar format and has been kept to size.
There are two separate parts to the book. The first and larger section is organised system by system with radiological signs and their differential diagnoses provided in lists and is very clearly and logically laid out. A second section gives imaging findings for common conditions; this is useful but not exhaustive.
The bite size topics have the right amount of detail to keep at one’s fingertips and reproduce in the examination or clinical meetings. Useful references have been updated. The book is still regarded by UK trainees as an essential companion for FRCR Part 2B tutorials and prepar-ation, primarily because of its surgical sieve approach listing differential diagnosis in order of commonness.
Although very much thought of an examination primer this will be useful for reporting radiographers and radiologist alike. This is a useful, pocket-sized book that is quick to reference and well-priced."

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.
