Organised in A-Z format by disorder, each entry gives easy access to the key clinical features of a disorder. An introductory chapter guides the reader in how to review chest X-ray's accurately.

A-Z of Chest Radiology is an invaluable quick pocket reference for the busy clinician as well as an aide memoir for revision in higher exams in both medicine and radiology.
