Mayo Clinic Challenging Images for Pulmonary Board Review is a collection of over 150 entities selected from over 1,500 examples of very unusual intrathoracic conditions, spanning more than 45 years of service by a highly respected clinician.

This will be indispensable resource for every pulmonologist, thoracic surgeon, and radiologist.
