CT scans have become the cornerstone of interstitial lung disease (ILD) management. Understanding how to interpret these images in the context of the current guidelines and state-of-the-art knowledge is critical for both radiologists and pulmonologists for optimal management of ILD patients
Computed Tomography of Interstitial Lung Diseases is a real-life, practical approach to the evaluation of ILDs using CT scans. It is the first single-author book in India on this subject, aimed at radiologists and pulmonologists who need that one single book addressing all aspects of CT scans in ILDs.
The book with its easy-to-read writing, 175 plus pictures and a structured pattern-based approach is the one book that all radiologists and physicians dealing with patients with ILDs should have on their table.
