Principles and Interpretation of Chest X-rays

Front Cover
Expertise in chest radiology is a must for all clinicians however little attention is paid to the teaching of this subject. It is difficult to understand chest radiology as one has to make an inference from a two-dimensional image of a three-dimensional structure. This book fulfils a long-felt need of postgraduate students, internists and pulmonary medicine specialists and provides valuable insight into the spectrum of diseases in tropical countries. Both normal and abnormal x-rays are discussed as well as diseases of the airways, lung parenchyma including pulmonary interstitium, mediastinum, pleura and the chest. A brief quiz at the beginning and end of each section helps stimulate the reader and confirm understanding of the principles.
