A-Z of Chest Radiology provides a comprehensive, concise, easily accessible radiological guide to the imaging of acute and chronic chest conditions. Organised in A-Z format by disorder, each entry gives easy access to the key clinical features of a disorder. An introductory chapter guides the reader in how to review chest X-ray's accurately. This is followed by a detailed discussion of over 60 chest disorders, listing characteristics, clinical features, radiological features and management. Each disorder is highly illustrated to aid diagnosis; the management advice is concise and practical. A-Z of Chest Radiology is an invaluable quick pocket reference for the busy clinician as well as an aide memoir for revision in higher exams in both medicine and radiology.
