Imaging tests are integral to the management of patients with suspected lung disease. Staggering advances in radiological technology have been associated with an ever-increasing complexity, and so keeping up with terminology, understanding the significance of basic radiological signs, and appreciating the prognostic impact of findings on imaging tests, is not an easy undertaking for the physician. Until now, there has been a lack of practical, pocket-sized, but authoritative texts dealing principally with the imaging features of pulmonary disease. Covering the essential elements of pulmonary imaging in a concise and digestible format, Thoracic Imaging deals with both the key principles of thoracic imaging, including a separate section on the common radiological terms used to describe pulmonary pathology, and the principal pathological compartments that are affected in specific disease processes. It is packed with over 600 high quality illustrations to highlight the important radiological features in the different diseases, with an emphasis on chest radiography (CXR) and computed tomography (CT) to mirror routine clinical practice.

The chest X-ray (CXR) or chest radiograph remains the most commonly ordered imaging study in medicine, yet paradoxically is often the most complex to learn, recall, and master effective and accurate interpretation. The chest radiograph includes all thoracic anatomy and provides a high yield, given the low cost and single source. This guide presents a structured lexicon for use by readers to reproducibly describe radiographic abnormalities of the chest detected on plain film CXRs. The lexicon is designed to provide readers with clinically significant differentiation of abnormalities detected. The content is structured to relate specific combinations of distinct radiographic findings to classes/groupings of pathological etiologies of those findings. Recognizing the individual findings and identifying their combination or lack of combination with other individual findings allows readers to create effective differential diagnoses that can then be further evaluated using other imaging procedures and/or non-radiographic clinical information. This book includes hundreds of images, including radiographs, CTs, graphics, and analogous models to help teach otherwise complex processes and radiographic principles.
