Computed Tomography of the Lung Second Edition 2018
Computed tomography is considered to be the best imaging modality for the assessment of the lung parenchyma. For this reason, a large section of the Computed Tomography of the Lung Second Edition 2018 pdf book is dedicated to the description of typical and less typical cases. Analysing these examples will help the reader to exercise pattern recognition and to understand why diseases present as they do.High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) can provide very high morphological detail of the ordinary and abnormal lung parenchyma and has been widely accepted as the imaging gold standard for the lung parenchyma. Many reports have confirmed the high diagnostic value of this technique, especially in the study of widespread diffuse or generalized lung disease.
Furthermore, an author has decided to reduce the number of authors to ensure that the specific concept and approach of this Computed Tomography of the Lung Second Edition 2018 book are well respected throughout the whole volume.The author has used the pattern approach because it is well established and is considered an excellent method to accomplish the primary goal of the book.
In this Computed Tomography of the Lung Second Edition 2018, author have maintained the basic structure of the book which is the pattern approach to lung disease. The author has added new insights that help to explain the CT features responsible for these patterns. Authors have also replaced a large number of illustrations by more recent and more illustrative ones. Author hope the reader will enjoy this work and will find it helpful when exploring the perhaps tricky but fascinating CT features of lung diseases and diseases with a pulmonary component.
Giving the readers a clear understanding of why abnormalities appear as they do is indeed one of the primary goals of this book since this skill will enable them to choose an appropriate differential diagnosis or even suggest
a definitive diagnosis once the CT findings have been correlated with the clinical situation.
