High-Resolution CT of the Lung 5th Edition

High Resoultion CT of the lung is the market leading reference for HRCT of the lung. Its easy-to-use format includes illustrated "quick-reference guide" to help readers navigate the text along with diagnostic algorithms and numerous tables to identify key findings, abbreviations used, and other essential information. The book guides the reader through the details of the numerous HRCT findings and their differential diagnosis and reviews characteristics of the common lung diseases. Discussion includes normal anatomy, HRCT findings, multiple examples of disease entities, radiologic-pathologic correlations, and rare diseases and their differential diagnosis.

During the past 25 years, high-resolution CT (HRCT) has become established as an indispensable tool in the evaluation of patients with diffuse lung disease. HRCT is now commonly used in clinical practice to detect and characterize a variety of lung abnormalities. In the approximately 5 years since our fourth edition was published, considerable progress has taken place in the understanding of diffuse lung diseases and the recognition of new entities and their nature, causes, and characteristics. Without doubt, HRCT has played a fundamental role in contributing to this progress and has become essential to the diagnosis of a number of diffuse diseases.
This fifth edition continues what the three of us, independently, in conjunction, and with each other’s encouragement and support, began some 30 years ago. The photograph of the three of us below was taken by a local resident at the 1989 Diagnostic Course in Davos, on a walk we took on the promenade above the Sweitzerhof on the day of our arrival, when as junior faculty, we were more than a little anxious about teaching along with such important and impressive chest radiologists as Fraser, Felson, Greenspan, Milne, Flowers, Heitzman, and many others.
At this meeting, we each spoke about the use of HRCT, which, at the time, was a little-known technique that was regarded with skepticism by many radiologists. We learned from each other as we spoke, compared slides in the speaker-ready room, and gained confidence from our shared opinions. At this meeting, we began thinking about a collaboration that would combine our experience and thoughts about this new modality and its potential uses. Our first edition of this book was published in late 1991, with a grand total of 159 pages. It was a quarter of an inch thick, and, to our knowledge, referenced every known paper on HRCT. From our perspective, it was the most important thing we had ever done.
That is how things start. Maybe that is the best way things should start. It was certainly fun and rewarding for each of us. And we three have stuck together over the years, out of our combined respect, admiration, friendship, and good humor. Each one of us believes that we learned more from our collaboration than we taught.
In this edition, we have incorporated an update and review of numerous recent advances in the classification and understanding of diffuse lung diseases and their HRCT features. Recent technical modifications in obtaining HRCT have also been reviewed, most notably the use of helical HRCT and dose-reduction techniques. We hope the reader will find these changes and updates helpful. As is ourwont, we have reorganized our discussions into new sections and chapters, which we feel best presents the most important topics in HRCT diagnosis for reference and learning.
A new section has been added at the end of the book to provide a general review of HRCT, including an illustrated glossary of HRCT terms and a chapter providing a compilation of the common and typical appearances of the most common diffuse lung diseases encountered in clinical practice. These sections are intended to provide an illustrated index to the detailed descriptions of diseases found elsewhere in the book.
It is with a great deal of pride that we complete our fifth edition of this book, which has occupied so much of our thoughts, efforts, and time over the years. This task is accomplished in the hope that this book will encourage future generations of thoracic imagers to develop mutually productive relationships with friends and colleagues, in order to explore important questions in our understanding of the role of imaging in the assessment of thoracic disease.
To this end, we acknowledge the contributions of three esteemed colleagues, our former fellows, who have authored parts of this book. Their efforts have greatly inspired our own enthusiasm for the considerable task of bringing this edition to fruition
