Together with an extensive illustrative collection of radiographs, conventional and computed tomograms, isotope studies, MRs, ets. on CD-ROM (Cross-platform for Mac and Windows version 3.1 or later)
This book is a wealth of information on Radiological images. It is a "must have" for the student and practicing physician and radiologist. Nowhere else have we seen such a collection of images. At the Rad Journal, we will use it as a reference guide for many years to come. Fred Wright has performed a much needed service to the radiological community.
"Fred Wright has complied a treasure of radiological images ranging from the most practical to the esoteric. The fine illustrations are readily found using the index and search systems supplied. The work will serve well as a reference for trainees and as a companion to the practicing radiologist." -Dr. W.R. Eyler, former Chairman, Radiology Department, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit and Editor Emeritus of the journal, Radiology.
Noting an abnormality is the first important step in radiological diagnosis. To interpret radiological images accurately, a thorough knowledge of how disease processes cause abnormal radiological appearances, relevant anatomy, lung functions and alterations produced by physiological and pathological processes is essential.

This book includes:
an introduction to reading chest radiographs, basic anatomy and physiology
a comprehensive review of the various disease processes affecting the chest plus related abnormalities
discussion of imaging techniques- radiography, fluoroscopy, tomography (inclusing CT and MR) and ultrasound as well as biopsy and bronchography
