    HRCT is an important tool for individual patient management and recent literature has documented that chest HRCT findings are significantly associated with outcomes such as pulmonary function and mortality. Keywords: computed tomography, lung, pleura, . In more recent years, airway diseases including occupational asthma have become the leading cause of work-related lung disorders in the industrialized world. While imaging is rarely necessary in occupational asthma, several entities associated with bronchiolitis obliterans will be by: 6.

      Despite federally mandated safety standards, the incidence of occupational or work environment related lung disease is on the rise. There is a widely used system for classification of chest radiographic abnormalities in pneumoconiosis introduced by the International Labour Office (ILO).[] Though the introduction of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) has revolutionized the Cited by: 2.

    The book outlines a diagnostic approach to both imaging and clinical aspects of chest diseases. Each chapter is followed by a summary. The book is a brief outline, from the author's experience, of an overall approach to specific chest radiologic abnormalities. The International Classification of HRCT for Occupational and Environmental Respiratory Diseases [34] was developed in an attempt to correlate chest x-ray and CT findings of occupational lung.

This well-illustrated book, written by internationally acclaimed experts, provides an up-to-date and comprehensive approach to modern imaging of environmental and occupational diseases of the chest.

Discussing the imaging of environmental and occupational diseases of the chest, this illustrated book focuses on the imaging results achieved in a variety of specific disorders. There is particular emphasis on thin-section computed tomography since this technique facilitates the detection of early subclinical abnormalities.

Magnetic resonance imaging. Imaging techniques Chest radiography. Chest radiography (X-ray) is an essential part of the diagnostic (and monitoring) examination, and is the first step in the radiological evaluation of patients with suspected respiratory diseases.

Modern digital radiography offers a high image quality and the potential for reduction of the radiation dose. Imaging of the pediatric chest has changed significantly over the past 20 years, predominantly owing to the introduction of new technology.

With these advances, knowledge of pediatric chest diseases has expanded considerably. This book presents the state of the art in the diagnosis of pediatric chest disorders, highlighting the role played by advanced technology.

These disorders include pneumoconiosis, asbestos-related pleural and parenchymal disease, chemical pneumonitis, occupational infection, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and organic dust toxic syndrome.

Most of these disorders produce diffuse lung disease. Although many of the disorders can be detected at chest radiography, high-resolution com.
