Descriptions Pulmonary and cardiac imaging

This unique volume integrates clinical and research areas in pulmonary and cardiac medicine with current imaging modalities from conventional radiography, radionuclide imaging, computed tomography, ultrasonography, and angiography to magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography – facilitating early disease detection and appropriate therapy.
Giving in-depth treatment of topics such as bronchogenic carcinoma, thoracic trauma, lung transplantation, pulmonary hemorrhage, emphysema, imaging-guided transthoracic needle biopsy, and pulmonary embolism, Pulmonary and Cardiac Imaging explains the difficulty of precise radiological diagnosis in the immunocompromised patient due to complications by multiorganism infections…covers focal and central airway lesions, bronchiectasis, and physiological imaging…discusses the radiological assessment for thoracic surgery-related conditions…highlights the use of digital projectional images…includes new noninvasive means of cardiac imaging…provides imaging algorithms for thoracic aortic aneurysm, dissection, traumatic rupture, and aortic stenosis…and more.
