Pain Medicine Board Review is a comprehensive guide for preparing for the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) certification or recertification in Pain Medicine, and for residents preparing for in-training examinations in Pain Medicine. The text is organized into 28 chapters covering topics such as Anatomy, Physiology of Pain, Pharmacology, Diagnosis of Pain, and various pain syndromes. Each section includes questions, answers, and detailed explanations with highlighted key points, and concise further reading lists. Questions follow the ABMS style, and the explications of answers carefully address all points in the ABMS content outline for Pain Medicine. A section on imaging includes high quality magnetic resonance images, ultrasound images, fluoroscopic images and other images that will enable the examination candidate to answer questions that determine knowledge of pathological states as compared to normal and complications of treatments.
