This is the ideal resource for all those requiring an authoritative and up-to-date review of imaging appearances of diseases of the lung, pleura and mediastinum. Chest radiography and CT are integrated with other imaging techniques, including MRI and PET, where appropriate. The clinical and pathologic features of different diseases are provided in varying degrees of detail with more in depth coverage given to rarer and less well understood conditions.


“Never has a “point source” on focused imaging managed to be so thoroughly concise and complete. Marvelous” Radiology

“Few single-volume textbooks on thoracic imaging can compare with this book” Am J. Roentgenology

“This is simply an excellent book” Respiratory Medicine

5 stars “ Brilliant book on chest imaging” reviewer Dr Rana Tauqir, Pakistan.

Assessment: This new edition is very useful for any radiologist, resident, or fellow who wishes to improve upon his or her understanding and interpretation of diseases of the chest. It goes beyond the basic information found in general radiology texts such as Thoracic Radiology: The Requisites, by McLoud (Mosby, 1998), providing more information on rarer chest infections and inflammatory or interstitial diseases to provide a truly comprehensive resource for any imager. Doody’s Journal

Best Chest Pathology Book on the Market., March 10, 2006
Excellent Images of pathologies. Expensive but worth the money.
