Synopsis of Diseases of the Chest

di Fraser - Colman - Muller - Pare  • 2005  • dettagli prodotto


Here’ s today’ s most important clinical knowledge on the diagnosis of chest diseases, condensed into a single, succinct, practical source. Derived from Fraser and Paré’ s encyclopedic Diagnosis of Diseases of the Chest, this state - of - the - art New Edition focuses on the diseases and disorders clinicians see in everyday practice. 1,400 beautifully reproduced images, including 100 in full color, demonstrate the clinical appearance of a full range of conditions. Radiology described the previous edition as “ a high - caliber text ” and declared that “ image quality is superb throughout ” Contents1. THE NORMAL CHEST The Airways and Pulmonary Ventilation The Pulmonary Vascular System The Bronchial Circulation Pulmonary Defense and Other Nonrespiratory Functions Development and Growth of the Lung Innervation of the Lung The Pleura The Lymphatic System The Thoracic Inlet The Mediastinum Control of Breathing The Respiratory Muscles The Chest Wall The Normal Lung: Radiography The Normal Lung: Computed Tomography 2.
