As in all specialties, learning in radiology is a life long process but for radiologists in training there is a vast amount of information to assimilate. In this book the authors have compiled 191 cases to help the reader with the practical aspects of image recognition and differential diagnosis. The selection of cases is broad enough to provide an introduction for some readers, with more testing cases for those in the later stages of training. Each self-test case is presented with an image, or set of images, together with the pertinent clinical details. The solution and explanation is presented over the page along with differential diagnoses that logically derive from the images and history. The correct diagnosis is followed by discussion of the underlying problem, strategy points and main imaging findings. The book contains 500 images including X-rays, ultrasound, CT, MRI, interventional techniques and nuclear medicine. It is of value to radiologists in training and other health professionals wishing to improve their radiological skills, and is the first book for the FRCR Part 2B exam.

Teaching Files are one of the hallmarks of radiology education, providing the kind of personal consultation with experts normally found only in the setting of a teaching hospital. This teaching file contains 164 cases, covering all areas of head and neck imaging. A consistent format is used to present each case. Chapters are organized by anatomical region. Included are cases on the temporal bone, skull base, eye and orbit, sinuses and nasal cavity, neck, trachea, salivary glands, hypopharynx and cervical esophagus, oropharynx and larynx. The book can be used both as an independent study and review tool for board-exam preparation and as a companion to Dr. Mancuso's majesterial, two-volume text, "Head and Neck Radiology" (2010), chapters from which are referenced following each case for further reading. The cases follow a standard format popular with residents and fellows: clinical presentation, questions, findings, differential diagnosis, diagnosis, discussion, questions for further thought, reporting responsibilities, and a section on what the treating physician needs to know. Cases conclude with answers to the questions. This format emphasizes critical thinking within a clinical context, to build medical decision-making skills. A password-protected companion website, free to purchasers of the book, includes all of the cases for online review.
