This book aims to help the reader who is confused by the multiplicity of diseases with similar symptoms in different patients. Consequently, the chapters are noticeably sign-oriented rather than disease-oriented, each dealing with one of the four cardinal modalities
of HRCT presentation;, namely, the reticular, nodular, alveolar and cystic patterns. Each chapter is introduced by a list of diseases, immediately followed by a detailed description, thoroughly illustrated. Each isThe chapters are thoroughly illustrated with high-quality, enlarged images, which, like counterpoint, provide the rhythm to the written text.
When dealing with the diseases within each pattern, only the pertinent of themones are taken into account. This is a feature unique to this book, which sees the same disease being introduced even two or three times.
Often, clinical presentation, history and HRCT are sufficient for making a diagnosis and defining disease management; in other cases, further investigation is required to obtain a more confident diagnosis, or to stage grade the activity of the disease more precisely. Consequently, the contribution of other techniques involved in diagnostic refinement are highlighted (bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchoscopic or thoracovideoscopic biopsy, open chest surgery).Review:
The book is well organized with color coded sections, excellent summary charts and quality coned down HRCT images illustrating the salient radiographic findings.... I found it easy to find pertinent information rapidly. I like the way the book is organized. As a radiologist, I really enjoyed the clinical and pathologic aspects included in a concise fashion. The layout and organization is quite unique compared to other texts on this subject. The authors have succeeded in making a user-friendly, thorough, and well structured guide for the evaluation of patients with diffuse lung disease. I would highly recommend this to physicians from the resident level to the specialist, including radiologists, pulmonologists, internists, and pathologists. (Michael Farah, Doody's Review)
"...The size and layout of the book means that it is relatively portable and easy to read. For those radiologists who do not have the time to read the book from cover to cover, there a numerous simplified tables, incorporating disease patterns and suggested diagnoses. These act as a good quick reference guide. Overall, this is a well-written book, which serves both the interested and inexperienced reporter of HRCT. Not only does it act as a useful introduction to diffuse lung disease, but it would be an immensely valuable addition to any CT reporting bench. In addition, the book is entirely relevant to interested thoracic physicians and pathologists." (A. Devaraj, Clin radiol, December 2006)
