New York/Stuttgart – Thoracic Imaging, published by Thieme, is the latest book in the RadCases series for students who are prepping for rounds, rotations and exams. RadCases is a student-geared book series and searchable online database of cases that covers every subspecialty in radiology.
Thoracic Imaging will comprehensively prepare readers for chest radiology, including x-ray, CT, MRI and other modalities -- a significant amount of the workload they will experience in contemporary radiology departments.
"Proper observation, analysis and interpretation of these exams requires thorough understanding of the pathophysiology and imaging manifestations of a broad range of disease processes," says author Dr. Carlos S. Restrepo, PhD, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. "In this review of 100 printed and 150 electronic cases, the essential imaging details of a myriad of conditions, both common and uncommon, are presented."
High-quality radiographs demonstrate significant thoracic abnormalities with unparalleled clarity so that students can assess and diagnose with speed and accuracy. In a user-friendly layout that is ideal for self-study, each RadCases title features the "top three" differentials per case to help students hone their diagnostic skills, as well as examples of critical cases that must be diagnosed immediately.
"We hope this concise review of imaging findings, differential diagnoses, essential facts, and pearls prepares [students] not only for the board examination, but most importantly, for a lifelong career in radiology," says Dr. Restrepo.
