Thoracic Imaging: Self-Assessment Colour Review (Illustrated Clinical Cases)

The chest radiograph is a ubiquitous first-line investigation in many acutely ill patients and accurate interpretation is often difficult. Radiographic findings may lead to the use of more sophisticated imaging techniques such as high resolution computed tomography (HRCT), helical or spiral CT and positive emission tomography (PET).
The 100 illustrated self-assessment cases presented randomly here – reflecting life in practice – range from the more simple and common to the complicated and esoteric.
The book will appeal to professionals in practice and training, from hospital-based doctors preparing for specialist examinations to established physicians and surgeons, specialist nurses and medical students.
