Top 3 Differentials in Radiology 2nd edition 2018
It is a distinct pleasure to present the second edition of Top 3 Differentials in Radiology: A Case Review. This Top 3 Differentials in Radiology 2nd edition 2018 book is primarily intended for radiology residents and staff physicians who are preparing for board examinations or looking for a refresher in differentials for common and important imaging gamuts. This second edition has new illustrative cases and updated content throughout while retaining its high-yield format.
The Top 3 Differentials in Radiology 2nd edition 2018 book is organized into 12 core sections based on specific radiology subspecialties. Each section contains a series of common and important imaging gamuts. On the first page of each case, readers are presented with images from a patient whose diagnosis is as yet unknown, along with a clinical history and detailed image legend. The illustrative cases are meant to highlight a key finding or gamut, which is the basis for the case discussion. The second page identifies the key finding, from which a list of differentials is broken down into the “Top 3” and additional differential diagnoses.
The discussion section of each case provides a brief review of important imaging and clinical manifestations for all entities on the list of differentials, and imaging pearls are provided at the end of each case to allow for a quick review of key points. The final diagnosis is provided for each case; however, it is by no means the focus of this Top 3 Differentials in Radiology 2nd edition 2018 book. In fact, many illustrative cases have a final diagnosis which would not be considered in the “Top 3” for the particular gamut.understanding of a reasonable list of gamut-based differentials, rather than obtaining the “correct” answer.
The final section, titled “Roentgen Classics,” contains cases from each of the previous core subspecialty sections that have imaging findings characteristic of a single diagnosis; thus, no differential is presented. A detailed discussion of the final diagnosis follows.
