This is the first Thoracic Radiology Textbook available on the Internet. The
hypertext provides immediate access to a complete review of all aspects of pulmonary and
cardiac radiology, to include recent developments, in a format that can be downloaded for
personal use. This manual has proven to be a valuable resource to physicians in training
as they prepare for their written and oral examinations. It also provides a broad and
easily accessible resource for staff physicians. The manual was written and formatted for
Internet distribution by Scott C. Williams, M.D. The information in the manual is updated
on a regular basis and therefore, unlike a text book which will become outdated, this
resource remains current. This is a major step forward in the distribution of medical
information and we believe that this hypertext will help set the standard for all medical
information resources in the future. We invite you to review this exciting resource.
This text has been compiled from many sources. It is intended to be a study and review

but there are likely several that are not specifically mentioned. All abstracts reproduced
in the text are taken from Pub Med (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed)

schedules, and adverse reactions listed in this text were as accurate as possible at the
time of publication. It is possible that typographical errors exist, or that currently
accepted medical practice may change. The reader is urged to review the package
information data of the manufacturers of the radiopharmaceuticals and medications
mentioned. Neither the authors, their respective institutions, nor any other individual or
