Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An excellent production and would appear to be definitive text … A great asset to the advanced endoscopist and endoscopic interventionist." (BMA Medical Book Competition - Programme and Award Winners, September 2008)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Luis R. Pena, MD, FACG, AGAF (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This is a well written review of the new technological advances in gastrointestinal endoscopy including high definition and narrowband imaging (NBI). The book is clearly organized and based on up-to-date information with several high quality illustrations to make it an excellent source for reference.
Purpose: The book provides a detailed review of two new endoscopic technologies by a group of experts from Japan, Europe, and the U.S. well known in the gastrointestinal endoscopy literature. They explain all the technical aspects of these new technologies, the potential applications in clinical practice, and the current literature. The authors have done a great job of addressing an important area that lacks adequate reviews.
Audience: Gastroenterologists and surgeons with interest in gastrointestinal endoscopy are the main audience. The editor is an internationally recognized authority in the field.
Features: The three parts of the book include the basics of NBI, potential applications of NBI and supportive literature, and an atlas of images. The parts are subdivided into sections organized by organ system. Among the best features of this book are the color plates of images in high resolution and NBI along with correlating histopathology to illustrate normal and abnormal findings throughout the GI tract. The companion DVD with 55 video clips illustrating diagnostic and therapeutic procedures is an invaluable resource for learning.
Assessment: This well written book by experts provides a detailed explanation of new technologies that will revolutionize the way gastrointestinal endoscopy is done. It provides a large amount of pictures and videos that illustrate the advantages and limitations of these technologies. This would be a useful consultation source in a field that has limited reviews of this type. Every physician performing gastrointestinal endoscopy should read this book.
