This book meets the need for a resource that covers the core knowledge required to pass the SCE exam, which includes the broad field of respiratory medicine. This book is also highly applicable to core medical trainees sitting their MRCP examinations. The format is ideal for effective exam revision with individual chapters covering the key points of each condition in sufficient (but not excessive) detail. Examples of imaging (CXR, CT, PET-CT) are utilised to illustrate cases and descriptions of modern respiratory intervention such as the EBUS/EUS-guided sampling and medical thoracoscopy is included in this essential exam resource.
