Now fully revised and up-to-date, Expert DDx: Chest, second edition, quickly guides you to the most likely differential diagnoses based on key imaging findings and clinical information. Expert radiologists Melissa L. Rosado-de-Christenson, Brett W. Carter, and John P. Lichtenberger III present more than 120 cases across a broad cardiothoracic spectrum, classified by general imaging features, modality-specific findings, and clinically-based indications. Readers will find authoritative, superbly illustrated guidance for defining and reporting useful, actionable differential diagnoses that lead to definitive findings for the entire gamut of chest disorders.


Key Features
  • Presents several clear, sharp, succinctly annotated images for each diagnosis (more than 1,800 annotated images in all); a list of diagnostic possibilities sorted as common, less common, and rare but significant; and brief, bulleted text offering helpful diagnostic clues
  • Shows both typical and variant manifestations of each possible diagnosis
  • Includes new cases, expanded differential considerations, new terminology, and updated imaging throughout
  • Features all relevant imaging modalities, including chest radiography, the latest generation of multi-planar advanced cross-sectional CT and MR imaging, and molecular imaging with FDG PET/CT
  • Covers new and evolving areas such as lung cancer screening and the localization and classification of mediastinal lesions, and contains expanded content on the heart and pericardium
  • Enhanced eBook version included with purchase, which allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices
