Case study collection diagnostic dilemmas hones physicians' skills
Date:8/21/2013

Chevy Chase, MDPhysicians can practice strategies for identifying rare conditions or unusual presentations with Diagnostic Dilemmas: Images in Endocrinology, the new release from The Endocrine Society's recently established publishing imprint, Endocrine Press.

Diagnostic Dilemmas highlights 30 real-life case studies designed to sharpen physicians' abilities to diagnose thyroid, bone and other endocrine disorders. The second edition of one of The Endocrine Society's most popular titles, Diagnostic Dilemmas was updated and reformatted so each case can be read as a standalone chapter.

"The book presents a series of puzzles physicians can use to test their knowledge and ability to reach a diagnosis," said Leonard Wartofsky, MD, editor of Diagnostic Dilemmas. "Physicians can return to the exercises again and again to retest the diagnostic approach and incorporate lessons learned."

To aid physicians in evaluating the case studies, Diagnostic Dilemmas features full-color images from The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism's "Images in Endocrinology" series.

The new edition includes expanded discussions, updated reference citations and current status reports on the patient outcomes from recent visits.

"These challenging case studies help physicians refine their diagnostic skills," Wartofsky said. "This expertise is critical in ensuring physicians are prepared for any eventuality when the next patient walks in the door."
