Beschreibungen

Diagnostic imaging is an essential component in the evaluation of the patient with known or suspected respiratory tract disease.  While chest radiography continues to serve as the primary tool for imaging the chest, advances in computed tomography (CT) have led to a variety of applications such as high-resolution CT (HRCT), advanced 3-D airway imaging, and image-guided procedures.The aim of this book is to deliver a clinically-oriented approach to pulmonary imaging.  Each chapter of the book will provide 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 will supplement the text.The target readers include practicing internists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and primary care practitioners. Other readers will include respiratory care therapists and medical students.  The proposed cohort of authors represents experts in the field of thoracic radiology.  These authors have experience in thoracic radiology and medical writing, each will deliver a high-quality chapter meeting the aims and scope of this book while addressing the target audience. Aside from the first three chapters, which are introductory materials, each author will be invited to select a clinician with whom they work closely to serve as a co-author in order to provide a chapter that maintains the clinical orientation of this book.
The volume delivers a clinically-oriented approach to pulmonary imaging. Each chapter provides an organized approach to the different facets of imaging of specific clinical scenarios, focusing on the strengths and weaknesses of available imaging tests.

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.  With a focused approach to specific clinical problems, Clinically Oriented Pulmonary Imaging is an essential new text that both novice and experienced readers will find to be useful.
