A New Edition of an Atlas Covering the Breadth and Depth of Chest Imaging

New York, NY, May 09, 2012 --(PR.com)-- “Chest Imaging Case Atlas, Second Edition,” recently published by Thieme, enables radiology residents, fellows, and practitioners to hone their diagnostic skills by teaching them how to interpret a large number of radiologic cases. This atlas contains over 190 cases on conditions ranging from Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma to Wegener Granulomatosis. Each case is supported by a discussion of the disease, its underlying pathology, typical and unusual imaging findings, management, and prognosis, providing a comprehensive overview of each disorder.

“The readers of this book, novice and experienced radiologist alike, as well as non-radiologists interested in a practical, clinically relevant approach and format, will enjoy learning through this image-rich format that replicates how we practice radiology every day: through the comparison to databanks of images either accumulated in memory over time or available in an instant through the Internet, contrasting different diagnoses in the clinical context of each patient, and synthesizing the information to provide a clinically relevant interpretation and radiology report.” – From the Foreword by Ella A. Kazerooni, MD, MS

This book is an invaluable illustrated reference for all physicians interested in chest imaging, including pulmonary medicine physicians and thoracic surgeons.
