Chest Radiology Companion
Designed for easy reference, this thoroughly illustrated, portable handbook is a practical guide to performing and interpreting imaging studies of the adult chest. The first section reviews the fundamentals of plain film radiography and high-resolution CT and presents chest CT protocols. The second section presents succinct, bulleted "key facts" about all commonly encountered pathologic entities, along with representative images and explanatory captions. The authors focus primarily on differential diagnoses and offer a combination of approaches to image interpretation--they use a basic pattern approach, an anatomic site of disease approach, or a disease process approach depending on what's best suited to a particular case. A list of suggested readings is provided for each topic.
