Images from the wards; diagnosis and treatment.

Ed. by James S. Studdiford et al.

Elsevier Saunders


305 pages




In this visual reference and review for diagnosis and treatment, more than 500 images, selected from a teaching database at Jefferson Medical College, represent conditions seen during clinical rotations and encountered on certification exams. Color images on every page are accompanied by a synopsis of mechanism, differential diagnosis, diagnostic workup, and treatment, with material organized by anatomical sites of disease. There are also chapters on genetic disorders and physical findings of systemic diseases, plus appendices of ultrasound images and images from gastrointestinal endoscopy. Self-assessment and Board-style multiple choice questions based on the clinical vignettes, with explained answers, will help readers prepare for USMLE Steps 2 and 3. The book can be used by in-training and practicing physicians. Studdiford teaches in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at Jefferson Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University.
