A comprehensive atlas covering the breadth and depth of chest imaging

Acclaim for the first edition:
"The quality of the images, easy readability, and practical approach to diagnosis make this book a particularly good value. Every radiology training program should have this book in its library as a resource for residents and fellows." - Jeffrey S. Klein, MD, Fletcher Allen Healthcare, RAD, Burlington, Vermont

Written by renowned experts in chest imaging, Chest Imaging Case Atlas, Second Edition, enables radiology residents, fellows, and practitioners to hone their diagnostic skills by teaching them how to interpret a large number of radiologic cases. This atlas contains 193 cases on conditions ranging from adenoid cystic carcinoma to Wegener granulomatosis. Each case is supported by a discussion of the disease, its underlying pathology, typical and unusual imaging findings, management, and prognosis, providing a comprehensive overview of each disorder.

Special features of the second edition:

  • Over 1,500 high-quality images demonstrating normal anatomy, anatomic variations, and a wide spectrum of pathologic findings
  • More multiplanar, CT angiographic (CTA), MRI, and 3D imaging is incorporated into the text, helping readers stay current with this rapidly changing technology
  • 40 new cases and updated images of cases from the previous edition
  • A new post-thoracotomy chest section addresses normal postoperative findings and complications associated with common thoracic interventional procedures
  • The neoplastic diseases section includes the new TNM staging system for lung cancer
  • The adult cardiovascular disease section now contains a discussion on univentricular and biventricular or end-stage heart failure, including various ventricular assist devices and the Total Artificial Heart, their imaging features, and complications associated with their use
  • The diffuse lung disease section has been expanded to include an approach to HRCT interpretation
  • Case discussions are based on up-to-date reviews of current literature as well as classic landmark articles
  • Pearls are provided after most case discussions describing specific features that may strongly support a specific diagnosis, enabling readers to sharpen their clinical diagnostic skills
This book is an invaluable illustrated reference that all physicians in radiology-and chest imaging in particular, including pulmonary medicine physicians and thoracic surgeons-should have on their bookshelf.
