Thoracic Imaging Self-Assessment Colour Review
Thoracic Imaging Self-Assessment Colour Review pdf
The chest radiograph is a ubiquitous first-line investigation in many acutely ill patients and accurate interpretation is often difficult. Radiographic findings may lead to the use of more sophisticated imaging techniques such as high resolution computed tomography (HRCT), helical or spiral CT and positive emission tomography (PET).
The 100 illustrated self-assessment cases presented randomly here – reflecting life in practice – range from the more simple and common to the complicated and esoteric.
The book will appeal to professionals in practice and training, from hospital-based doctors preparing for specialist examinations to established physicians and surgeons, specialist nurses and medical students.
From the Back Cover
This illustrated color review contains 100 randomly organized cases in a question and answer format, perfect for clinicians to use to hone their skills in thoracic imaging and diagnosis.
It covers a wide range of problems from basic radiographic cases such as tuberculosis, pulmonary masses and mediastinal masses, to more challenging cases of cystic fibrosis, asbestos, sarcoidosis and alveolar cell carcinoma. Questions, supplemented by photographs, diagrams, and x-rays, appear on the rightside pages, and answers follow on the next, leftside page, complete with differential diagnosis, complications, and management.
This is an ideal review for clinicians both in practice and in training, from hospital-based doctors preparing for higher qualifications to established physicians seeking to continue their professional development.
