Imaging of the Chest - A Teaching File, Hardbound
Author(s): Patricia J. Mergo, MD
Written by faculty members and residents, this volume of the popular LWW Teaching File Series is an excellent aid for radiology residents preparing for oral board exams. It presents 150 well-illustrated cases, drawn from teaching files in major medical centers, that cover all common chest diseases and current imaging modalities. Cases are presented as unknowns in a consistent format--images and a brief clinical history are followed by relevant findings, differential diagnosis, final diagnosis, and a discussion. This format enables readers to hone their diagnostic reasoning skills and answer exam questions with confidence. Cases are grouped according to pattern of radiographic appearance.
