Abstract
This is the ideal resource for all those requiring an authoritative and up-to-date review of imaging appearances of diseases of the lung, pleura and mediastinum. Chest radiography and CT are integrated with other imaging techniques, including MRI and PET, where appropriate. The clinical and pathologic features of different diseases are provided in varying degrees of detail with more in depth coverage given to rarer and less well understood conditions. A single volume, comprehensive reference text on chest radiology. Provides in a single resource all of the information a generalist in diagnostic radiology needs to know. Concisely and clearly written by a team of 4 internationally recognized authors. Avoids the inconsistency, repetition, and unevenness of coverage that is inherent in multi-contributed books. Multimodality coverage integrated throughout every chapter. All of the applicable imaging modalities are covered in a clinically relevant, diagnostically helpful way. Approximately 3,000 high quality, good-sized images. Provides a complete visual guide that the practitioner can refer to for help in interpretation and diagnosis. Covers both common and uncommon disorders. Provides the user with a single comprehensive resource, no need to consult alternative resources. Access the full text online and download images via Expert Consult Access the latest version of the Fleischner Society's glossary of terms for thoracic imaging. Outlines, summary boxes, key points used throughout. Makes content more accessible by highlighting essential information

Abstract
Since the previous edition of Pediatric Chest Imaging was published in 2007, there have been significant advances in our understanding of chest diseases and continued development of new imaging technology and techniques. The third edition of this highly respected reference publication has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect this progress. Due attention is paid to the increased role of hybrid imaging, and entirely new chapters cover topics such as interventional radiology, lung MRI, functional MRI, diffuse/interstitial lung disease, and cystic fibrosis. As in previous editions, the focus is on technical aspects of modern imaging modalities, their indications in pediatric chest disease, and the diagnostic information that they supply. The full range of imaging techniques and all important disorders are thoroughly covered. The editors are confident that this latest edition of Pediatric Chest Imaging will be an essential asset for pediatricians, neonatologists, cardiologists, radiologists, and pediatric radiologists everywhere. The combined expert knowledge and experience contained within its pages should contribute in further improving patient care and outcomes.
