9780323026178: Chest Radiology -- Plain Film Patterns and Differential Diagnoses

This comprehensive, yet concise tool provides a direct approach to differential diagnosis for the 23 most common radiologic patterns of chest disease. CT and HRCT are used to confirm the pattern, show anatomic distribution of the disease, and make a specific diagnosis. Each pattern is introduced with radiographs followed by a series of questions, tables of differential diagnosis, and discussions of the most likely diseases to present with such a pattern. Discussions emphasize the importance of clinical correlation to narrow down the differential diagnosis.

OUTSTANDING FEATURES:

  • Emphasizes plain film patterns, with CT, MR, and other important modalities included where appropriate.

  • Begins each chapter with a quiz or illustrated case and provides the answers at the end of the chapter.

  • Summarizes key points at the end of each chapter.

  • Presents the pitfalls of plain film radiography, and indications for CT, HRCT, biopsy, and other procedures.


NEW FEATURES:

  • Updates and expands coverage on lung cancer, tuberculosis, and AIDS.

  • Revises discussions of perception/analysis of plain film observations.

About the Author:

James C. Reed, MD, Diagnostic Radiology, Univ. of Kentucky School of Medicine, Professor and Chairman

Review:

"Medical students and residents will find that this book is most helpful. I also believe that this is a good reference to aid practicing radiologists in refining their evaluation of the chest radiograph. The last sentence of the preface to the new edition reads, 'Chest radiology is a discipline that requires the mind of a detective and the ability to find answers to the unknown by careful review of the shadows.' Reed's book will certainly help make one a better detective."--Radiology, Jan. 2005
