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.
"Recommended to radiologists in training, especially those taking the FRCR examination, as well as physicians in thoracic medicine, or those taking the MRCP."
—The British Journal of Hospital Medicine
"The cases chosen vary from the commonplace to the very esoteric in a normal DGH caseload and the answers to the questions and subsequent clinical discussions are comprehensive, up-to-date and informative."
—Dr. C. M. Turnbull, Western General Hospital in RAD Magazine
