More than 1,000 full-color illustrations, tables, and "practical points" boxes help you arrive at a diagnosis accurately and efficiently.

- Up-to-date information on the genetics of lung cancer, with a focus on current guidelines for genetic testing and what likely lies ahead.
- Superb coverage of imaging in interstitial lung disease, including explanations of radiologic findings that correlate with pathologic diagnosis.
