Title: Imaging, edited by R. Graham Barr, David G. Parr and Jens Vogel-Claussen
The European Respiratory Society (ERS) has published “Imaging” as part of its ERS Monograph book series. The book’s editors, R. Graham Barr, David G. Parr and Jens Vogel-Claussen, have compiled a book that comprehensively coversthis key area of screening and diagnosis, which is often an area of debate with regard to safety and overuse.
The book considers imaging from two different angles: methodology and safety; and the use of imaging in the respiratory field. Leading international authors provide chapters on: safety issues in CT and MRI, the risks of thoracic CT, MRI methods, radionuclide imaging, chest radiography, COPD, cystic fibrosis, asthma, lung cancer, pulmonary hypertension, and much more.
