Diagnostic Imaging: Chest (Second Edition) is the much-anticipated update to the bestselling first edition by Dr. Melissa Rosado-de-Christenson and her large team of chest radiology experts. This new edition features an expanded section on infections, including discussion of various infections not included in the first edition. It also adds two new subsections to the chest imaging section. The first of these is an illustrated terminology section, which includes medical illustrations of important visual identifiers such as “honeycombing.” The second new subsection describes various radiographic and CT signs, such as the “finger-in-glove” sign. Also fresh in this edition is a new section devoted entirely to atelectasis, which features expanded discussion of this important topic. In all, this 980-page new edition features over 150 new chapters along with the time-saving bulleted text and stunning radiographic and medical illustrations that are hallmarks of the award-winning publications from Amirsys.
