I read the book for enjoyment and pleasure, as well as enlightenment. It was a delightful learning experience.--Thomas Lee Bucky, MDThis book teaches radiology in a way that mimics a lively setting on the wards. To have fun in learning the theoretical basis of imaging and the interpretation of radiographs and other modalities, in the context of clinical examination and findings, this is the book for you.The basics of imaging are described using analogies from daily life to make them as understandable and memorable as possible. The material of radiology is described using actual cases; the most common differential diagnoses are presented. A great amount of image material supports the learning process.A storyline runs through the book: four students in their final year of medical school are involved in active discussion of the cases, so that the reader also feels a part of the diagnostic process.

Radiology is a routine diagnostic procedure in all fields of clinical veterinary practice, and exotic medicine is no exception. Besides an increasing interest and concurrent demand for a higher level of care of these species, very little is reported in the scientific literature about normal radiographic patterns, and radiographic abnormalities are generally limited to case reports. Clinical Radiology of Exotic Companion Mammals is designed to fill this gap. It provides a practical resource for veterinarians wishing to add these special species to their clinical practice, and a ready reference for those already including those species among their caseload. Clearly labeled normal images will aid anyone interested in comparative radiographic anatomy, and the techniques section will help overcome difficulties related to the smaller size of many exotic companion mammals. Features of the book include: wide range of exotic mammal species beyond ferrets, rabbits, and rodents, including species such as marsupials, hedgehogs and potbellied pigs a review of the basic principles of radiology, equipment, radiologic techniques and patient positioning helpful for optimizing exotic companion mammal radiography an extensive review of both normal and pathologic radiographic patterns. Some of the latter are accompanied by clinical or surgical images to aid the practitioner in familiarization with a wide range of both common and uncommon lesions.

There are very few radiology multiple choice question books on the market that reflect the current trends and developments in the field of imaging. Hence, the emphasis of this book is on cross-sectional CT and MR imaging. It highlights the current understanding and concepts in the state-of-the-art imaging of a wide range of diseases in the body. The multiple choice questions are organised according to body systems and imaging modalities. There are twelve sections in the book, testing the reader in a broad range of imaging knowledge. The questions are accompanied by expanded answers, which provide the reader with a summary of the key facts relating to a particular topic. This is especially useful in assisting the reader in consolidating his or her understanding of the subject. The questions are devised in a format similar to those encountered in the Part 2A examination of the Royal College of Radiologists (UK) and the Part 2 examinations of the Joint Australian and New Zealand College of Radiology. Candidates taking the American Radiology Board examinations will also find the book informative.

Multiple choice questions are the most common method of assessing knowledge in radiology. These books have more than 6000 questions, covering all the essential topics in Clinical Radiology. The books have been divided into separate topics - Chest and Cardiovascular, Musculoskeletal, Gastrointestinal and Hepatobiliary, Genitourinary, Obs and Gynae, Paediatric, Neuro-Radiology, Head and Neck, which will enable revising the subjects on a topic basis, with due emphasis on anatomy, techniques and pathology. The questions have been designed on the format used by the Royal College of Radiologists UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand. There is a single question with five stems, which require a true or false response. The answers and detailed explanations are provided at the end of each chapter. These books will be a valuable resource for review and practice prior to the Fellowship exams. Bibliographies have been provided for further reading.
