Clinico Radiological Series: Imaging of Chest Infections

by Randeep Guleria, Ashu Seith Bhalla, Manisha Jana, Priyanka Naranje, GC Khilnani

This book describes the role of imaging in diagnosis as well as image guided interventions at chest infections with reference to latest guidelines. In clinical practice, chest infections are amongst the commonest cause of significant morbidity and at times, mortality. The varied spectrum of such infections range from general population being affected by community acquired pneumonia, to immunocompromised individuals secondary to HIV, solid organ or hematopoietic transplantations being affected by uncommon, opportunistic organisms. This book consists of 6 sections that include general, imaging according to causative organism, imaging according to clinical scenarios, complications of pneumonia, pattern-wise approach to thoracic infections, and reporting formats, which are further divided into 29 chapters. The book tries to cover salient imaging differences between infections and their common non-infectious mimics. The variety of illustrative cases and proposed structured reporting formats for various scenarios are also provided at the end of the book. This book is aimed at practicing radiologists, physicians and pulmonologists managing the patients with chest infections.
