This popular resource assists readers in honing their knowledge of radiological differential diagnosis for the most commonly encountered conditions in all areas of the body. The first section presents lists of differential diagnoses, supplemented by notes on useful facts and discriminating factors. The second section offers detailed descriptions on the characteristic radiological appearance of more than eighty individual diseases. The result is a convenient study tool for exam preparation, as well as a helpful quick reference for clinical practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...useful not only as a pedagogical book, but also in daily practice...great interest for trainees and qualified clinical radiologists." B Grignon, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Issue 3, May 2003
"...text will remain indicative reading for student radiographers and will continue to be used by them throughout their continuous professional development." P Hogg, Radiography, January 2004
"...immensely popular handbook has been revised and updated to reflect the changes in radiological imaging that have taken place in the past 8 years...this book is most assuredly a best seller and will undoubtedly become a well-thumbed friend to many a trainee radiologist." D.N. Redford, Dept of Radiology, Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh, British Journal of Surgery, February 2004
From the Publisher

Aids to Radiological Differential Diagnosis does exactly what it claims. The new edition is thoroughly revised and updated and now contains an extensive paediatric chapter. In particular, it will form an extremely popular companion to the film viewing section of the FRCR Part IIB examination in the UK. It is a book that I intend to keep close at hand.

Joanne Driver, RAD Magazine, December 2009

From The Critics
Reviewer: Anne M. Kennedy, MB, ChB (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This is a pocket reference book in two parts. The first part lists differential diagnoses. The second part lists radiological features of the conditions most frequently noted in the first part.
Purpose: The book was written as a source of the lists of differential diagnoses required of candidates sitting for postgraduate exams. The authors have succeeded admirably, although the book cannot get much larger or it will no longer fit in a coat pocket.
Audience: The target audience is junior radiologists preparing for the FRCR. It is also an excellent reference for review prior to ABR and is a useful source for practicing radiologists wishing to review salient features of rarer diseases or check differential diagnoses.
Features: Excellent line diagrams illustrate certain areas, but the book is sold as a list source. The authors specify no radiographs included.
Assessment: The original target audience was British, hence the use of liquor volume instead of amniotic fluid volume, classical spellings (oedema, etc.), and a detailed description of liver segmental anatomy used by European hepatobiliary surgeons. I used the first edition of this book in preparation for FRCR and found it invaluable. Each new edition is better but bigger. The book is seriously at risk of outgrowing the pocket. It is well suited to individual purchase, allowing the lists to be personalized, but a copy in the departmental film library would be an excellent resource during review sessions. My only concern was the erroneous statement that an embryo should be seen in the gestational sac of 9 mm. The discriminatory value is 18 mm.
