The Chest X-Ray / Edition 2

Hardcover (Print)

Overview

The conventional chest x-ray remains the first line in the diagnostic imaging of thoracic disease. In the new edition of this classic, you will get the essential help you need to make preliminary diagnoses of a vast range of pulmonary, cardiovascular, and other thoracic conditions. The differentialdiagnostic information is provided in extensive tables, organized by classes of findings, and illustrated by hundreds of brilliant radiographs and, where helpful, schematic diagrams.

Professionals value the systematic structure of the information in the Burgener series, which aids in making diagnoses confidently and cost-effectively.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The authors have very successfully produced a concise, focused, and well-organized book. The authors have been most successful at compressing a great deal of fundamental chest radiology into a small space. This approach allows a condensed presentation very useful to residents preparing for board examinations or anyone seeking to refresh his or her knowledge.—Clinical Imaging
