The present volume in the series of WHO manuals in diagnostic imaging, the Radiographic Anatomy and Interpretation of the Chest provides an exhaustive description of radiographic normal anatomy as well as the most common pathologic changes seen in the chest, focusing specifically on pulmonary and cardiac problems.

The text aims to provide an aid to the interpretation of the chest radiograph (CXR). It is not a comprehensive account of all possible chest diseases but a descriptive text to help identify the way in which chest pathology is manifest and diagnosed on CXR. The initial chapters deal with interpretive skills and pattern recognition and the later chapters demonstrate specific pathologies.

Backed by high-quality reproduction of radiographs, this manual will prove essential reading to general practitioners, medical specialists, radiographers, and radiologists in any medical settings, although focusing specifically on needs in small and mid-size hospitals.
