Guide to Diagnostic Tests, Seventh Edition by Diana Nicoll; Chuanyi Mark Lu; Stephen J. McPhee
This book is a quick reference guide to the selection and interpretation of commonly used diagnostic tests, including laboratory procedures in the clinical setting, common laboratory tests (chemistry, hematology, coagulation, immunology, microbiology, drug monitoring, pharmacogenetic, and molecular and genetic testing), diagnostic imaging tests (plain radiography, CT, MRI, and ultrasonography), electrocardiography, echocardiography, and the use of tests in differential diagnosis, helpful diagnostic algorithms, and nomograms and reference material.

Cardiovascular System & Physiology
Arrhythmia Essentials by Brian Olshansky; Mina K. Chung; Steven M. Pogwizd; Nora Goldschlager
This book is easily portable and is of great value for the busy clinician called upon to treat these patients, as well as students and nurses interested in learning more about this rapidly expanding area in medicine. It should also prove of great value to seasoned clinicians eager to gain an authoritative review of the management and treatment of patients with cardiac rhythm disorders.

Cardiovascular Physiology, Ninth Edition by David E. Mohrman; Lois Jane Heller
In this our final edition as primary authors of this text, we have continued our penchant of focusing on the big picture of how and why the cardiovascular system operates as it does. Our firm belief is that to evaluate the importance and consequences of specific details it is essential to appreciate where they fit in the big picture. The core idea is for students not to get lost in the forest for the trees.

Gastrointestinal Imaging: the Requisites by Giles W. Boland
This book attempts to discuss not only the range of modalities and the spectrum of imaging findings in gastrointestinal disease, but also the most appropriate imaging for a given clinical context. Furthermore, all available imaging modalities are discussed, not just the most modern.

Top 3 Differentials in Gastrointestinal Imaging by Rocky C. Saenz
The book is organized into five abdominal imaging sections covering hepatobiliary, pancreas and spleen, gastrointestinal (GI) tract, mesentery and vascular, and abdominal wall. Each case is formatted as a two-page unit. The left page features clinical images, succinctly captioned 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.

Respiratory System & Physiology
West's Respiratory Physiology by John B. West; Andrew M. Luks
The present edition has been updated in many areas including blood-tissue gas exchange, mechanics, control of ventilation, and the respiratory system under stress. In addition to the answers to the multiple choice questions, Appendix B contains discussions of the answers to the questions associated with the end-of-chapter clinical vignettes. There are several animations expanding sections of the text.

Basic Musculoskeletal Imaging, Second Edition by Jamshid Tehranzadeh
This book originally was intended for medical students and residents in radiology, orthopedic surgery, and physical therapy and rehabilitation; however, many practicing radiologists, residents, and fellows in different specialties found it to be a quick, resourceful, and handy book to refresh and update their knowledge in essentials of musculoskeletal imaging.

Basic Radiology, Second Edition by Michael Y. M. Chen; Thomas L. Pope; David J. Ott
The primary goal of this book was to create a concise text on current radiologic imaging for medical students and residents not specializing in radiology. After the first two introductory chapters, subsequent chapters employ an organ-system approach. Imaging techniques pertinent to the organ system, including their appropriate indications and use, are presented. Question-oriented exercises highlight the most commonly encountered diseases for each organ system.

Introduction to Diagnostic Radiology by Khaled Elsayes; Sandra Oldham
This book is written, with medical students in mind, as an alternative to the traditionally large (and hard to learn) reference textbooks. The authors believe that trainees should learn the essentials before delving into the subjects in depth. This up-to-date book contains practical and concise descriptions and high-quality illustrations. State-of-the-art techniques and the most common types of clinical cases encountered in daily practice are discussed.

Fluid, Electrolyte, & Acid-Base Physiology
Lichtman's Atlas of Hematology by ichtman MA, Shafer MS, Felgar RE, Wang N
The intent of this work is to provide online access to images that are characteristic of a wide array of hematological disorders and other disorders that affect the blood, enhancing written descriptions found in Williams Hematology and other relevant medical books published on-line by McGraw-Hill. This Atlas permits an extensive presentation of blood, marrow, lymph node, spleen, and other organ pathology that would be too costly to be included in the print version of the text.

Clinical Neuroanatomy, Twentyninth Edition by Stephen G. Waxman
This new 29th edition provides an accessible, easy-to-remember synopsis of neuroanatomy and its functional and clinical implications. A Box summarizes the most essential take-away lessons from each chapter. Since many of us learn and remember better when material is presented visually, this book is liberally illustrated not only with clinical material such as brain scans and pathological specimens but also with hundreds of diagrams and tables that are designed to be clear and memorable.

Essential Neuroscience by Allan Siegel; Hreday N. Sapru
To present the material in an integrated fashion, Clinical Considerations are included as are discussions of the physiological aspects. At the end of each chapter, a Chapter Summary Table is provided that highlights the most important facts and concepts of the chapter and allows for review of the material in a simple, efficient manner. A Clinical Case is also presented, which is followed by a Chapter Test consisting of questions that can also be used effectively for United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) preparation.

Neuroanatomy Text and Atlas, Fifth Edition by John D. Martin; John D. Martin
An important goal of Neuroanatomy: Text and Atlas is to prepare the reader for interpreting the new wealth of human brain images—structural, functional, and connectivity—by developing an understanding of the anatomical localization of brain functions. To provide a workable focus, this book is largely restricted to the central nervous system. It takes a traditional approach to gaining neuroanatomical competence: Because the basic imaging picture is a two-dimensional slice through the brain (e.g., CT or MRI scan), the locations of structures and consideration of their functions are examined on two-dimensional myelin-stained sections through the human central nervous system.
