The thoroughly revised Fourth Edition of this widely acclaimed volume explains how to use the newest high-resolution CT technology to detect and diagnose lung abnormalities. Still the only complete text on the topic, this compact, affordable reference is written by the foremost experts and provides cutting-edge technical and clinical information. It includes state-of-the-art HRCT scans of interstitial lung diseases and differential diagnosis tables summarizing the most helpful diagnostic features of interstitial and airspace diseases.

This edition includes full-color illustrations of histologic findings in lung disease, correlated with HRCT manifestations. Also included are updated HRCT images obtained on multidetector CT scanners with many coronal and sagittal reformations. Two new chapters on the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias detail the differential diagnosis, pathophysiology, histology, clinical manifestations, and HRCT features of these entities.

A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text plus an image bank containing all illustrations from the text.
