"This book is a useful tool, especially for the first or second-year radiology resident, the fourth year resident looking for a comprehensive yet concise overview of thoracic imaging, and the practicing physician interested in a handy reference or a quick review. Several unique chapters separate this book from most general thoracic books, most notably the cardiovascular, pediatric, postoperative thorax, and upper abdominal chapters. This book provides a concise review of all of thoracic imaging and complements the more comprehensive texts. 4 Stars!"--Doody's Review Service (Doody's 2001-04-01)
