"This seventh edition continues the book's quality tradition and remains a staple for radiology residents.. Of greatest value in this edition, as with prior editions, is the pattern approach to imaging of the lung parenchyma. This topic is typically not well taught in residency programs and is nicely supplemented by the information in this book."? Reviewed by Tara Catanzano, MD (Baystate Medical Center)
