Imaging tests are integral to the management of patients with suspected lung disease.
Staggering advances in radiological technology have been associated with an ever-increasing complexity, and so keeping up with terminology, understanding the significance of basic radiological signs, and appreciating the prognostic impact of findings on imaging tests, is not an easy undertaking for the physician.
Until now, there has been a lack of practical, pocket-sized, butauthoritative texts dealing principally with the imaging features of pulmonary disease.
Covering the essential elements of pulmonary imaging in a concise and digestible format, Thoracic Imaging deals with both the key principles of thoracic imaging, including a separate section on the common radiological terms used to describe pulmonary pathology, and the principal pathological compartments that are affected in specific disease processes.
It is packed with over 600 high quality illustrations to highlight the important radiological features in the different diseases, withan emphasis on chest radiography (CXR) and computed tomography (CT) to mirror routine clinical practice.
