Diagnostic Imaging for Thoracic Surgery 2019 1st Edition
This book offers a comprehensive overview of thoracic pathologies of surgical interest involving the lung, mediastinum, esophagus, and chest wall with the aim of providing both radiologists and thoracic surgeons with a reference of high value in everyday clinical practice. Oncologic and non-oncologic conditions are reviewed from both the radiological and the surgical point of view, each one being documented with the aid of high-quality radiologic images from several modalities (including X-ray, fluoroscopy, CT, MR, and PET), illustrations/artwork, and high-definition images from the surgical table. The postoperative anatomy and complications associated with thoracic surgery procedures are also described in detail, with the provision of imaging examples that highlight aspects of importance in differentiating between normal and abnormal findings. Written by experts in the field, Diagnostic Imaging for Thoracic Surgery is exceptional in combining precise descriptions of surgical procedures
with key teaching points in imaging interpretation.

“This is an up-to-date, complete reference on multimodality imaging of the nonvascular thorax. The information is presented in a logical and efficient format. The authors are successful in creating a practical book that is useful for all disciplines involved in the diagnosis and management of thoracic disease. … This is useful for residents, fellows, and practitioners. The book targets medical and surgical practitioners, but, as a radiology resident, I have found it very useful.” (Robert Harrold, Doody’s Book Reviews, January 04, 2019)
