About this book

 For a long time, imaging of the chest was based on the use of either radiography, demonstrating lung morphology, or scintigraphy, looking at lung function. However, as a result of recent developments in CT and MRI technology it is now possible to perform dedicated investigations of different aspects of lung function, such as ventilation, perfusion, gas exchange, and respiratory mechanics. This volume, written by acknowledged experts in the field, provides a well-illustrated and comprehensive review of these novel approaches to functional imaging of the chest. It will be of great assistance to all who are establishing such strategies in the research or clinical arenas for the diagnostic work-up and follow-up of patients with lung diseases.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"With the recent developments in MRI and helical-CT, the opportunities for functional studies have blossomed and this is the topic of this quite excellent book which reviews the field of functional chest imaging. … This is a book for all who are interested in chest imaging and is warmly recommended. … As expected in any book published by Springer, the quality of illustrations is excellent." (Dr A Thomas, RAD Magazine, May, 2005)

"The editor of the volume provides a unique book on the visualization of lung morphology and structure and on functional imaging of the lung. … Each chapter has excellent imaging material and up-to-date references. … this book provides a comprehensive overview of all new approaches to functional imaging of the chest. It will be of great help for clinicians, pneumologists, and radiologists who deal with patients with lung diseases." (T. J. Vogl, European Radiology, 2006)
