The chest radiograph is a ubiquitous, first-line investigation and accurate interpretation is often difficult. Radiographic findings may lead to the use of more sophisticated imaging techniques, such as multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and positive emission tomography.
Containing 100 challenging clinical cases and illustrated with superb, high quality images, Thoracic Imaging, Second Edition explores a wide range of lung conditions. Coverage ranges from basic radiographic cases such as tuberculosis, pulmonary and mediastinal masses to the more challenging diseases, including cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, sarcoidosis and interstitial lung disease.
It remains an invaluable text for radiologists and imaging professionals in practice and in training, from hospital-based doctors preparing for higher examinations to established physicians in their continuing professional development.
…a fine example of how relevant information can be concisely put into a book slightly larger than the size of your palm. With text by internationally recognised experts, it is not suprising that the book is very well written, containing a wealth and depth of knowledge… This book will be invaluable to not just rainee radiologists but also the non-thoracic specialist looking for a quick refresher or a pocket guide.
