Chest Imaging Cases

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, USA, Jan 31, 2012 - Medical - 367 pages
Chest Imaging Cases thoroughly encompasses the field of thoracic radiology through 137 cases covering common and challenging radiologic and clinical issues. The cases are divided into categories important for board examinations and clinical practice: diagnoses that should be made on radiography, trachea, esophagus, chest wall, thoracic outlet, congenital lesions, mediastinal lesions, pleura, diaphragm, pulmonary masses, diffuse lung disease, pulmonary vascular disease, thoracic trauma, and post-surgical complications. Using a problem and solution format, each case features high-quality images, practical differential diagnoses, approaches to daily practice, management pearls and suggested readings. Concise discussions keep cases brief and informative, allowing for efficient learning and interpretation. Chest Imaging Cases is the essential resource for honing diagnostic skills in thoracic radiology for students, physicians-in-training and practitioners.
