Overview

The thoroughly revised, updated Fourth Edition of this classic reference provides authoritative, current guidelines on chest imaging using state-of-the-art technologies, including multidetector CT, MRI, PET, and integrated CT-PET scanning. This edition features a brand-new chapter on cardiac imaging. Extensive descriptions of the use of PET have been added to the chapters on lung cancer, focal lung disease, and the pleura, chest wall, and diaphragm. Also included are recent PIOPED II findings on the role of CT angiography and CT venography in detecting pulmonary embolism. Complementing the text are 2,300 CT, MR, and PET scans made on the latest-generation scanners.

"The authors examine the use of CT & MRI in evaluating thoracic disease & assess their comparative clinical utility, particularly in the investigation of cardiovascular disease & thoracic neoplasia."
