“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.
More than 700 high quality images, including advanced imaging techniques
Rank ordered differentials organized into the Top 3 and additional diagnostic considerations
A high-yield review of important imaging and clinical manifestations for all entities on the list of differentials
Imaging pearls at the end of each case provide a quick review of key points
This outstanding resource provides radiologists and trainees with a solid foundation of core radiology topics and a wide spectrum of key imaging findings encountered in clinical practice. It is a must-have for radiology residents preparing for board examinations. Veteran radiologists looking for a comprehensive review of critical topics in radiology will also find this book invaluable.

Medical imaging technologies can help diagnose and monitor patients’ diseases, but they do not capture the lived experience of illness. In this volume, Devan Stahl shares her story of being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis with the aid of magnetic resonance images (MRIs). Although clinically useful, Stahl did not want these images to be the primary way she or anyone else understood her disease or what it is like to live with MS. With the help of her printmaker sister, Darian Goldin Stahl, they were able to reframe these images into works of art. The result is an altogether different image of the ill body. Now, the Stahls open up their project to four additional scholars to help shed light on the meaning of illness and the impact medical imaging can have on our cultural imagination. Using their insights from the medical humanities, literature, visual culture, philosophy, and theology, the scholars in this volume advance the discourse of the ill body, adding interpretations and insights from their disciplinary fields. “”In this fascinating and quite unique book, Devan Stahl and some of those who love her offer a deep, rich, and at points quite moving insight into what it means to live into enduring forms of illness. The interdisciplinary approach is powerful in the way that it allows us to see Devan’s illness experiences from a variety of perspectives. . . .I commend this book and I pray that it both informs and changes people’s views on what it means to live humanly in the company of enduring illness.”” –John Swinton, Professor, School of Divinity, King’s College University of Aberdeen “”In Imaging and Imagining Illness, Devan Stahl breaks new ground in the now well-populated field of illness writing. Combining personal memoir, artwork, rigorous analyses from bioethics and medical humanities, and philosophical reflection, it offers fresh interdisciplinary insights into the experience of illness and disability in a technologized medical world. More than anything else I have read, Stahl’s book shows the reader how the person in illness interweaves multiple perspectives to give meaning to their experience.”” –Jackie Leach Scully, Executive Director, Policy Ethics and Life Sciences Research Centre “”This transcendentally lyrical work is about relationships: between a woman and her body; between her-self and evolving life with an unpredictable illness; between a printmaker–her sister–and her materials; and between two sisters in narrative and graphic counterpoint. . . . Other voices–a literary scholar, a theologian, and a physician-philosopher–enhance the complexity and texture of the artistic pas-de-deux at the center of the book. Above all it reminds us of the potential, in Devan Stahl’s words, that ‘resistant acts of creation’ have for humanity and emancipation.”” –Arno K. Kumagai, Professor and Vice Chair for Education, Women’s College Hospital, University of Toronto “”Blending the verbal and the visual, the personal and the scholarly, this unique volume takes us on a wondrous journey from patient to print and icon that will make readers look at medical images with an entirely fresh eye. The result is proof that illness narrative is an invitation to share vulnerability with others and of the transformative power of imaginative and collaborative perspectives on the ill body. It deserves to be widely read.”” –Stella Bolaki, Author of Illness as Many Narratives: Arts, Medicine and Culture Devan Stahl is Assistant Professor of Clinical Ethics in the Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences at Michigan State University.

This book offers an up-to-date overview of childbirth-related pelvic floor dysfunction covering prevention, diagnosis, and management. It encompasses all relevant conditions, with particular focus on genital prolapse, urinary incontinence, and fecal incontinence. Risk factors for pelvic floor damage related to childbirth are identified, and a 3D simulation of delivery is presented. The role of various diagnostic tools, including pelvic floor ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging and anal sphincter electromyography, is clearly described. The importance of physiotherapy in preventing future alterations is explained, and the indications for surgery, which is reserved for more severe situations, are discussed. The book highlights the need for a multidisciplinary approach involving obstetricians, gynecologists, urologists, midwives, radiologists, physiotherapists, muscle laboratory engineers, and computer technicians.
