Contemporary medical imaging


Primarily aimed at radiologists and pulmonologists, this textbook addresses computed tomography (CT) medical imaging of the large and small airways of humans. Editors Boiselle (Harvard Medical School) and Lynch (National Jewish Medical and Research Center) first present introductory chapters devoted to airway physiology, anatomy, and pathology, as well as anatomical and functional CT imaging methods. Four chapters are then presented on large airways disorders in adults, including airway stenoses, neoplasms, malacia, and bronchiectasis. The next five chapters discuss small airways disorders in adults, including asthma, infectious and noninfectious small airways disorders, obliterative bronchiolitis, and smoking-related airway diseases. Finally, two chapters are presented on pediatric large and small airways disorders.
