Clinically Oriented Pulmonary Imaging delivers a clinically-oriented approach to imaging the lungs. Each chapter provides an organized approach to the different facets of imaging of specific clinical scenarios, focusing on strengths and weaknesses of available imaging tests. High quality examples of typical imaging findings of specific conditions supplement the text. Target readers include practicing internists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and primary care practitioners. Other readers include respiratory care therapists and medical students. Chapters are written by experts in the field of thoracic radiology and focus on specific clinical problems such as pulmonary thromboembolic disease, hemoptysis, or lung cancer, and they discuss the utility of imaging in addition to illustrating the imaging findings commonly encountered.
