Certainly a most ac urate and popular modality in diagnosis of lung diseases. Some condition are very clearly differenceate between various condition. World is progressing very fast but only dependency on machines is not fully acceptable because our mind created these machines so the history clinical and physical examination can't be ruled out in making diagnosis.
