This new, one-of-a-kind atlas presents the theory and application of the procedures used to evaluate the respiratory system using easy-to-understand diagrams and illustrations. Excellent for self-study or teaching, it relies heavily on high-resolution images of normal and abnormal lungs, handy outline cards, and diagrams rather than weighty text to convey principles and techniques.

  • Each chapter written by an international expert in the field
  • Highly visual format makes it a superb tool for self-instruction or review
  • Chapters include techniques to analyse the gross and fine structure of the respiratory system and classical methods used to study morphology, as well as state-of-the-art methods that couple modern cell and molecular biology with optical techniques
  • Clear, comprehensive coverage of lung anatomy and pathology (including special techniques); bronchoscopy and related topics; radiography, imaging, and nuclear medicine; and pulmonary function testing
