Case review: brain imaging
Part of the popular new Case Review series, this volume focuses on brain imaging from a multimodality perspective and is perfectly customized to meet the self-testing needs of those preparing for exams or to serve as a way for general radiologists to sharpen their skills in this subspecialty area. Two hundred unknown brain cases with 400 images are succinctly presented in random order with questions, answers, commentary, references, and cross-references to the relevant REQUISITES volume. Differential diagnoses and pertinent radiological findings will be emphasized, but relevant clinical points also will be covered. Cases will be divided by difficulty level, with a division between more common cases and the more unusual and challenging cases.
* Features an at-a-glance review of brain cases that prepares residents, fellows, and practicing radiologists studying for exams or wishing to spruce up this subspecialty area. * Mimics official exam formats which allows for self-testing, subsequent learning, preparation and confidence-building to succeed in exam settings and practice settings. * Organizes cases randomly and divides them into three overall categories, so the reader has the opportunity to test him/herself at different degrees of difficulty. * Provides an outstanding review of the entire subspecialty of neuroradiology when combined with the recently published Head and Neck volume and the soon to be published volume on the Spine. * Complements and references the Neuroradiology: THE REQUISITES volume to provide the most comprehensive review for the exams. THE REQUISITES covers the essentials of the subspecialty and the CASE REVIEW allows you to test yourself on those essentials. * Includes approximately 420 state-of-the-art images which complement the text and provide a clear picture of what exam takers can expect. * Affordable, manageable, practical 8 1/2 x 11 size with space for note-taking in the text. * Features a consistent format with the same features: case presented as unknown with four questions, followed by answers to questions, detailed commentary, latest references in the literature, cross-reference to THE REQUISITES volume, and space for note-taking.
