Abstract

Covering the essential elements of pulmonary imaging in a concise and digestible format, this resource 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, with an emphasis on chest radiography (CXR) and computed tomography (CT) to mirror routine clinical practice.
