By David P. Naidich, W. Richard Webb, Philippe A. Grenier MD, Warren B. Gefter MD, Timothy J. Harkin MD

Written by way of well-known specialists on thoracic imaging, this quantity is the 1st to check all modalities—both noninvasive and invasive—for visualizing the airlines. Emphasis is put on correlating CT photos with bronchoscopy, to help in reading CT findings and in appearing interventional bronchoscopic procedures.

After a evaluate of airway imaging strategies and anatomy, the e-book provides correlating CT and bronchoscopic photographs for a variety of pathologic entities. specified chapters study the trachea and crucial bronchi, the prognosis of bronchiectasis, and using CT in diagnosing small airway disorder. A bankruptcy on sensible imaging of the airlines can be included.
