Editorial Reviews

This new edition of a text on high-resolution CT HRCT of the lung incorporates significant recent advances in the reclassification and understanding of lung disorders, including the interstitial pneumonias. It also adds discussions of a number of conditions such as lymphoproliferative and eosinophilic lung diseases, chapters on airways and pulmonary vascular diseases, reviews of technical advances in obtaining HRCT most specifically, the use of multidetector HRCT, and a number of diagnostic algorithms based on the particular abnormalities observed on HRCT scans. Radiologists W. Richard Webb U. of California, San Francisco, Newtor L. M<:u>ller U. of British Columbia and David P. Naidich New York U. Medical Center/Bellevue Hospital present 11 chapters that discuss technical aspects of HRTC; normal lung anatomy; HRCT findings; diseases characterized primarily by linear and reticular opacities, nodular or reticulonodular opacities, parenchymal opacification, and cysts and emphysema; airways, pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary vascular diseases; clinical utility of HRCT; and an illustrated glossary of HRCT terms. The book contains many b&w images. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David A. Lynch, MD (University of Colorado School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive and authoritative delineation of the high resolution CT (HRCT) features of lung diseases and includes a useful quick-reference guide, an illustrated glossary, and multiple algorithms for differential diagnosis of CT patterns. Discussion of some of the less common lung diseases is expanded in this edition, which updates the previous edition of five years ago.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe and illustrate the range of HRCT abnormalities that may be found in common and uncommon lung diseases. In addition to reviewing advances in our understanding of diffuse lung diseases, the authors have added chapters on airway disease and pulmonary vascular disease, algorithms on differential diagnosis, and a quick reference guide to show the common appearances of the most common diseases. The new edition is needed because of the substantial advance in experience with HRCT of lung disease since the previous edition. Since its first edition this book has been the standard reference for HRCT of the lungs. This third edition continues this tradition and clearly meets the authors' goals. The quality of the illustrations and descriptions is uniformly excellent.
Audience: The book is aimed at the practitioner of chest CT. It will be useful for both experienced chest radiologists and those who encounter only one or two HRCT cases a week. It should be on the shelf of every radiology department. The authors are internationally recognized authorities on HRCT of the lung.
Features: The book includes discussions of the technical aspects of HRCT, normal anatomy, and then classifies diseases by their predominant HRCT appearances (lines, nodules, parenchymal opacification, cysts/emphysema, airways disease, pulmonary vascular disease). Subsequent discussion encompasses the clinical utility of HRCT. Unique user-friendly features include an illustrated glossary of HRCT and a quick reference "cheat sheet" with bulleted list of the major features of important lung diseases. The coverage is remarkably uniform and comprehensive, probably because the authors have worked together in this field for a long time. One shortcoming is that there is very little discussion or illustration of the clinical, physiologic, and pathologic correlates of lung diseases.
Assessment: This book remains the standard reference in the field of HRCT. No other book covers the topic with the same degree of focus. The excellent CT atlas by Stern and Swensen, High-Resolution CT of the Chest: Comprehensive Atlas, 2nd edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2001) does not include the detailed descriptions and bibliographic documentation available here. More general texts of thoracic imaging usually assign little space to the topic of HRCT.
