This book focuses on diagnostic radiology: chest and cardiovascular imaging. The plain chest radiograph remains the initial imaging modality for various chest diseases and its interpretation continues to be a great challenge. Importance of chest radiograph in the diagnosis of various diseases has been dealt with in depth in all the chapters. Technique of CT and its recent advances in the evaluation of chest diseases and potential of MRI for evaluation of thoracic lesions are covered in separate chapters. Trauma is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. The incidence and severity have sharply increased during the past few decades, primarily because of the increased use of high speed travel. The role of the radiologist in the management of abdominal trauma has expanded considerably in the recent years. Earlier urography, scintigraphy and angiography played an important role in trauma care. The modalities of CT and interventional radiology have improved the assessment of an injured patient and facilitated non-operative therapy for some injuries. The comprehensive discussion on the indications and importance of various imaging techniques in the practice of emergency and chest radiology, a systematic approach for imaging a patient with trauma affecting different organ system are covered in this book.
