Revised to reflect the current cardiothoracic radiology curriculum for diagnostic radiology residency, this concise text provides the essential knowledge needed to interpret chest radiographs and CT scans. This edition includes nearly 800 new images obtained with state-of-the-art technology and a new chapter on cardiac imaging.
A new patterns of lung disease section provides a one-stop guide to recognizing and understanding findings seen on thin-section CT. This edition also includes the new classification of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, current techniques for evaluating solitary pulmonary nodules, an algorithm for managing incidental nodules seen on chest CT, the new World Health Organization classification of lung tumors, and numerous new cases in the self-assessment chapter.
