Presented as unknowns, the cases are arranged into twelve main sections based on radiology subspecialties. The book presents each case as a two-page unit. The left page features clinical images and a brief description of the clinical presentation. The right page provides the key imaging finding, Top 3 differential diagnoses, additional differential diagnoses, the final diagnosis, and imaging pearls. The final section of the book contains selected cases from all radiology subspecialties with distinctive imaging findings that should lead definitively to a single diagnosis. Features:
  • 325 cases presented as unknowns to facilitate exam preparation
  • Valuable high-yield review of all disease entities on the list of differential diagnoses for each case
  • More than 700 high-quality images, including 74 in full color, depicting key radiographic findings
  • Imaging pearls at the end of each case that highlight key teaching points
  • With its emphasis on gaining a solid foundation in differential diagnoses for the full range of key imaging findings encountered in clinical practice, this book is ideal for individuals preparing for the initial American Board of Radiology examination as well as more experienced radiologists preparing for recertification examinations.

    Praise for the first edition:

    "Innovative...it would be difficult to find a better high-yield, high-quality textbook covering every subsection of the radiology...board examination." - JAMA

    "Extremely useful for practicing radiologists and radiology residents looking to...acquire the most pertinent knowledge in preparation for board exams, recertification, and general practice...This high-yield way of learning allows the rapid development of...differential diagnoses...for the full range of entities commonly encountered in practice and board exam settings." - Academic Radiology

    "One of the major strengths of this book is...it focuses on short succinct differentials and avoids the laundry-list differentials...The book...is a great value for those looking to develop short clear differentials for the imaging findings..." - Radiology

    This fully revised second edition of Top 3 Differentials in Radiology provides a comprehensive core exam review of frequently encountered imaging gamuts in all major radiological subspecialties. Author William O'Brien utilizes the widely acclaimed format of his first edition, with 330 new and updated radiology cases organized into 12 core subspecialty sections. The last section, "Roentgen Classics," includes cases from each of the previous core sections, with imaging findings characteristic of a single diagnosis.

    This book reflects content included in the current radiology board examinations with accurate and concise descriptions of key differentials, which are integral to acing the boards. Each case is formatted as a two-page unit. The left page features clinical images, succinctly captioned radiographic findings, and pertinent clinical history. The right page includes the key imaging gamut, differential diagnoses rank-ordered by the Top 3, additional diagnostic considerations, and clinical pearls.

    Key Features
