This book offers a comprehensive overview of all major pathologic conditions involving the lung and mediastinum and the related diagnostic procedures. Oncologic and non-oncologic conditions are reviewed and described in detail, featuring, besides normal anatomy, also high quality images from several modalities (including X-ray, CT, MR and PET), as well as b/w and color illustrations and line drawings. Complications associated with surgical and oncological treatments are also presented in detail with extensive imaging examples.
The book provides a thorough coverage of the topic of thoracic imaging, yet considering a concise and synthetic approach essential to optimal learning. The book will be a useful reference guide for the everyday clinical practice of young radiologists, residents and medical students.
