Contents A glossary of HRCT terms -- Coding CT-classification in occupational and environmental respiratory disease (OERD) -- Technical aspects and imaging parameters in HRCT -- Radiation exposure and risk assessment in HRCT -- Application of the international classification of HRCT for the occupational lung diseases -- ILO International classifications of radiographs of pneumoconioses : past, present and future -- Pleural diseases -- Parenchymal changes of CT imaging -- Radiological and pathological correlation of autopsied cases of pneumoconioses
Summary "Many international experts collaborated in creating this work, a principal coding system, and in developing reference films and imaging parameters for the International Classification of HRCT for Occupational and Environmental Respiratory Diseases. The book is a guide to the recognition of dust diseases of the lung, using radiological imaging techniques, with special emphasis on high-resolution computed tomography (CT). The classification is a powerful, essential tool for recording patient data on CT in a globally standardized semiquantitative way. The system is also applicable to surveillance and screening for occupational and environmental respiratory diseases. With the accompanying CD-ROM containing all the reference films, readers can easily interpret clinical data. The book is a resource not only for radiologists but for all who work in occupational medicine and public health."--Jacket
