Outlines, summary boxes, key points used throughout.Makes content more accessible by highlighting essential information.
Brand new color images to illustrate Functional imaging techniques.Many of the new imaging techniques can provide functional as well as anatomic information.
Introduction of a second color throughout in summary boxes in order to better highlight key information. There’s a wealth of key information in the summary boxes―will be highlighted more from the narrative text and will therefore be easier to access.
Practical tips on identifying anatomic variants and artefacts in order to avoid diagnostic pitfalls.Many misdiagnoses are the result of basic errors in correlating the anatomic changes seen with imaging to their underlying pathologic processes.
Latest techniques in CT, MRI and PET as they relate to thoracic diseases.
The pace of development in imaging modalities and new applications/refined techniques in existing modalities continues to drive radiology forward as a specialty.
Emphasis on cost-effective image/modality selection.Addresses the hugely important issue of cost-containment by emphasizing which imaging modality is helpful and which is not in any given clinical diagnosis.COPD and Diffuse Lung Disease, Small Airway disease chapters extensively up-dated.Access the full text online and download images via Expert ConsultAccess the latest version of the Fleischner Society's glossary of terms for thoracic imaging
This book has been written to provide radiologists, physicians, and thoracic surgeons with a onevolume account of chest imaging, primarily in the adult patient. An attempt has been made to present an integrated review of the appearances encountered in diseases of the lung, pleura and mediastinum using the various imaging techniques available in a modern imaging department.From the preface to the first edition (1990)
We have again tried to meet the objectives set by our predecessors all of whom have retired since the first edition was published twenty years ago. Alex Bankier has kindly agreed to join us in our endeavors to bring this new edition up-to-date.As with previous editions, the clinical and pathologic features of different diseases are provided in varying degrees of detail with more in-depth coverage given to rarer and less well understood conditions.
There are new sections on emerging diseases, such as the surfactant deficiency disorders, but we are aware that current understanding of some of these conditions is incomplete and that inevitably their nomenclature and classification will change over the coming years.References have been refreshed but the temptation to discard references simply because they are old has been resisted. Classic descriptions, notably elucidations of fundamental radiographic signs, have been retained. Apart from paying tribute to the legacy of earlier writers, many of these meticulous studies have not been bettered.
In line with current publishing aesthetics there are splashes of color that we hope will enliven the largely black and white contents. As an aide memoire, and to promote some degree of standardization in the descriptive language used in chest radiology, the latest version of the Fleischner Society’s glossary of terms for thoracic imaging is reproduced in its entirety.
We hope that this new edition will be a useful resource and will provide more or less complete answers for anyone involved with thoracic imaging
