The serious work in diagnosing the illness of a patient with pulmonary disease starts, nine times out of ten, with an analysis of the differential diagnoses suggested by his chest roentgenogram. Now we have a guide to pulmonary diagnosis by Lillington and Jamplis that conforms to this pattern.
It is divided into three parts. Part one reviews diagnostic techniques such as lung biopsy, roentgenographic methods, and physical examination. Part two identifies 22 major roentgenographic patterns, and part three discusses the differential diagnosis of each of these.
