this robust study guide is ideal for american board of radiology (abr) exam preparation, mirroring the syllabus in the new noninterpretive skills (nis) module for the core, certifying, and maintenance of certification exams. skilled radiologists with nis expertise provide boardtype questions and high-yield pearls on why the keys to a successful radiology practice involve more than “just reading ’em right.”
the abr safeguards the public through careful licensing of radiologists who demonstrate the highest commitment to competence, professionalism, and safety. the nis module was created in response to the fact that radiologists tend to be primarily diagnosis-oriented, but also need to master other important skills to attain and maintain excellence as practitioners.
- included are a wide range of high-yield questions with detailed answers.
- patient safety, radiation safety, effective patient communication, error prevention, quality improvement, contrast reaction management, mri contraindications, and more, are all discussed.
- the business of radiology: professionalism, best practices, key performance measures, malpractice, ethics, critical thinking, and more, are explained.
- six sigma and lean-highly regarded improvement methodologies-are discussed in cogent,easily relatable language.
- abundant memory aids in the form of mnemonics and tips are interfused throughout the text.
the reader-friendly text and tips format, coupled with the well-written q & a format, enable proficient learning of a large depth and breadth of material. radiology residents who utilize this rigorous abr exam prep will gain the confidence to attain top scores on the nis portion of the boards. this book is also an essential resource for established radiologists preparing for the moc exam.
the authors are a multidisciplinary team of expert radiologists and engineers, and the book will be of value to all with an interest in the quantitative imaging of biomarkers in personalized medicine.show more

stochastic modeling for medical image analysis provides a brief introduction to medical imaging, stochastic modeling, and model-guided image analysis.
today, image-guided computer-assisted diagnostics (cad) faces two basic challenging problems. the first is the computationally feasible and accurate modeling of images from different modalities to obtain clinically useful information. the second is the accurate and fast inferring of meaningful and clinically valid cad decisions and/or predictions on the basis of model-guided image analysis.
to help address this, this book details original stochastic appearance and shape models with computationally feasible and efficient learning techniques for improving the performance of object detection, segmentation, alignment, and analysis in a number of important cad applications.
the book demonstrates accurate descriptions of visual appearances and shapes of the goal objects and their background to help solve a number of important and challenging cad problems. the models focus on the first-order marginals of pixel/voxel-wise signals and second- or higher-order markov-gibbs random fields of these signals and/or labels of regions supporting the goal objects in the lattice.
this valuable resource presents the latest state of the art in stochastic modeling for medical image analysis while incorporating fully tested experimental results throughout.
