Now in its second edition, Radiology: The Oral Boards Primer is a proven resource for the successful radiologist. Thoughtfully designed and updated, this book dramatically improves the reader's ability to organize and tackle a vast number of cases in a short amount of time. Chapters are organized by radiologic specialty, with approximately 30-35 cases presented in each representing the pertinent and key differential diagnoses likely to appear during the examination. This fast-paced book keeps the reader moving forward with quick mnemonics and an extremely high ratio of figures to text. The concise case presentations can be rapidly examined, interpreted, and memorized in a single sitting. With a clearly defined algorithmic approach, this book will give readers the assuredness and confidence that comes from being superbly prepared.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Scott B Rader, D.O.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a very concise review of many of the most common differential diagnoses in diagnostic radiology with associated images and mnemonics. The chapters are divided into sections similar to the oral board format. A brief section covers a recommended approach to the oral board examination.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide information that is typical of that found on the oral board examination for diagnostic radiology. This is definitely a worthwhile book as the combination of imaging with a focused differential diagnosis allows for rapid evaluation and interpretation of each case. The mnemonic can be used as a memory aid.
Audience: The authors intend this book for diagnostic radiology residents preparing for the oral board examination. Radiology residents and practicing radiologists could also use it for a quick case or differential diagnosis review. Dr. Beall is the chief of radiology services at Oklahoma University Medical Center.
Features: The primer provides many cases typical of those that will appear on the diagnostic radiology oral board examination. The chapters are divided by topic, similar to the format of the oral board exam, with the exception of head and neck radiology which is handled separate from neuroradiology. Each chapter covers many common findings that require a differential diagnosis rather than a specific single diagnosis. The individual cases have at least one associated image and a differential diagnosis for the case, and most cases have a mnemonic memory aid for the differential diagnosis. The book is designed so that the cases can be covered rapidly, similar to the board exam. Several of the images were too small to clearly identify the intended findings, particularly in the chest section. A single larger image would be more useful than multiple small images. I was disappointed at the lack of an index.
Assessment: This will be useful for preparation for the diagnostic radiology oral board examination. The information is concise and the cases can be covered quickly. A larger single image per case would be recommended for future editions.
