This lavishly illustrated book is your comprehensive, hands-on guide to evaluating chest images. It is ideal for reading cover-to-cover, or as a reference of radiological presentations for common thoracic disorders. With this book, you will learn to interpret chest images and recognize the imaging findings, generate an appropriate differential diagnosis, and understand the underlying disease process.

The atlas begins with a review of normal thoracic radiography, CT, and MR anatomy, and goes on to present cases on a wide range of congenital, traumatic, and acquired thoracic conditions. Each case is supported by a discussion of etiology, pathology, imaging findings, treatment, and prognosis in a concise, bullet format to give you a complete clinical overview of each disorder. More than 1,050 high-quality images demonstrate normal and pathologic findings, and complementary scans demonstrate additional imaging manifestations of disease entities.

Residents, fellows, and general radiologists called upon to interpret chest images will find this easy-to-use book invaluable as a learning tool and reference. It is also a must for thoracic radiologists, pulmonary physicians, and thoracic surgeons who must read chest images --especially of challenging cases.
