Preface to the Fourth Edition
50 YEA RS and going strong. I t was 1965 when Felson, Weinstein, and S pi first publishedPrinciples of Chest Roentgenology. S , ultrasound, andince then, CT, MRI nuclear medicine have come along, yet this modest book continues to be a best seller. Why? Simple.The basic concepts are presented in a straightforward manner and logical sequence, one chapter building on the next. Relevant.text emphasizes basic radiographic anatomy and signs of disease The seen in everyday practice. The chest x-ray is an important component in virtually every discipline in medicine. Interactive.ne cannot passively read this textbook. A ctive participation is O engaging and entertaining, and the material is more likely to be remembered. N ow, with the electronic edition, interactivity is better than ever. Repetitive, repetitive, repetitive. I mportant concepts are presented and represented from various points of view, reinforcing previously acquired knowledge. Manageable. The open style and carefully selected material says to every harried reader, “This book is doable.” Fun.The science is easy! The humor is difficult! Much of the joy of the original text is the quips and one-liners throughout the book.Principles in Chest Roentgenology proves that learning does not have to be tedious. I t strikes a balance between serious purpose and humor. Many remember the jokes long after the details of left lower lobe anatomy have faded (probably not a terrible tragedy).
What Do Students Want to See in the Fourth Edition? Electronic Edition:his is the idealElectronic media has become the choice for many. T medium for a programed text as it provides many opportunities for interactive learning. I t also supports higher quality images than print, and images can be presented in a cine (motion picture) mode. More Advanced Imaging:this book is about learning to read chest x-rays,A lthough additional CT, MR, ultrasound, and PET images are included. I nterstitial Lung D isease:This topic drives everyone crazy. “I nterstitial D isease: A Picture Book” is a brief pictured representation of the various pa>erns on the x-ray, on the CT, and using images from everyday life. Glossary: Radiology, like every medical specialty, has its own peculiar language. D efinitions of the most frequent terms are found throughout the text. Two glossaries are provided (x-rays and CTs) in the digital edition. Thanks:am most grateful to the many students and residents for their positive I
