Imaging is key to the screening and diagnosis of many respiratory conditions. It is also an area of significant debate, particularly with regard to questions surrounding safety and overuse. This book covers two main areas: imaging methodology and safety; and imaging use in specific respiratory conditions. It will be of interest to pulmonologists in all areas of respiratory medicine.
