About this book

This book provides an authoritative resource on the art of CT in the diagnosis and monitoring of pulmonary disease.  Exploiting recent technological advances in MDCT and 3-D rendering, CT of the Airways contains over 350 high impact figures illustrating relevant findings of necessity to the radiologist.  The full spectrum of pulmonary diseases of the large and small airways is covered, including stenoses, neoplasms, bronchiectasis, asthma, infectious diseases, and smoking-related illnesses.  Additional chapters address the clinical applications of CT in children.  Throughout, the various modalities of CT scanning are discussed in the context of specific disease states, providing key insights to optimize imaging technique and proficiency.

A vital reference for the radiologist, this book will also be of great utility to pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, pulmonary pathologists, and others involved in the care of patients with airway disease.  The collaborative effort of expert authors from around the globe, CT of the Airways distinguishes itself with its practical approach to state-of-the-art imaging modalities and forward thinking evaluation of emerging techniques.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a review of the technical, anatomic, and physiologic considerations involved in assessment of the airways by CT. … the book is written for practitioners. In my opinion, radiologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and allergists will find it particularly useful. … No other book in the field provides such a clear, succinct, and authoritative review of this topic. … The editors and authors are to be congratulated on their accomplishment: a new book bound to become a classic in the field of thoracic imaging." (Lisa Diethelm, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2008)

"CT of the Airways, edited by Phillip M. Boiselle and David A. Lynch, fills a vital need. … It is a valuable resource for professionals involved in the care of patients with airway diseases. … is thorough, thoughtful, and an important book for CT imaging professionals and is highly recommended for radiologists and pulmonologists. Additionally, other professionals involved in the care of patients with airway diseases will likely find this book of interest as the use of CT imaging increases." (Thomas F. Heston, JAMA, August, 2008)

“CT of the Airways is a comprehensive, well-organized, cutting-edge imaging textbook and … fourth text in the Contemporary Medical Imaging series. … intended audience is radiologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and pulmonary pathologists. … fills a particular need in the imaging literature by providing a subspecialty-level review of both the large and small airways in the adult and pediatric populations. … nearly 350 images, 94 of which are in color, and just over 400 pages, it is reasonably priced. … highly recommend CT of the Airways.” (Robert D. Stoffey, Radiology, Vol. 254 (2), February, 2010)

This book provides a valuable resource for radiologists, pulmonologists, and thoracic surgeons. It offers, to date, the most substantial opus concerning CT imaging of the airways, and belongs on the shelves of each radiology and pulmonology department. – Helmut Ringl, Medical University Vienna/European Journal of Radiology
