Expert Consult - Online and Print

Neuroradiology: Key Differential Diagnoses and Clinical Questions equips you to make efficient, accurate diagnoses and prepare for imaging exams with hundreds of high-quality, unknown cases in neuroradiology. Drs. Juan Small and Pamela Schaefer draw upon Massachusetts General Hospital’s vast case collection to help you master the skills you need for interpreting imaging of the head, neck, brain, and spine.

Reviews

  • "This book is primarily a case book of unknowns, many of which are listed together in an attempt to make the reader formulate a differential diagnosis. It does not mirror the typical text-based differential diagnoses text books, but rather provides a collection of imaging cases with similar features, and then provides a differential diagnosis for those findings...Overall, the selection of cases is good and by addressing a wide spectrum of neuroradiology including paediatrics, spinal imaging and head and neck imaging, it does cover most of the commonest conditions that would be seen...It is well written book, which is nicely laid out and the image quality is high in all sections."
