Understanding Pulmonary Pathology: Applying Pathological Findings in Therapeutic Decision Making provides a much needed reference tool for pathologists, practicing pulmonologists, and pulmonologist researchers. The unique approach to pulmonary pathology combines the multi-perspective views of the author who was trained formally as both a pulmonologist and as a pathologist.

The book addresses what is often lost in translation when conveying the experience of pulmonary pathology in practicing pulmonary medicine. This important tool conveys detailed information concerning the anatomic basis of disease to those oriented towards thinking about diseases physiologically, providing the opportunity for optimal diagnosis, treatment of patients, and advancement of research.
