"This book presents a concise and easily understandable approach to
the use of high-resolution lung CT (HRCT) in the diagnosis and
differential diagnosis of diffuse lung disease."
"It provides a practical and useful set of observations, insights, principles, and differential diagnoses so that readers can thoughtfully use these techniques in their practice, meeting these worthwhile objectives."
"While not intended to be a comprehensive atlas, this book provides substantial information in a concise but readable and understandable format. It provides a wealth of information and is an excellent reference for those interpreting these studies, particularly for those wishing to become proficient in this area."
