Overview

Part of the definitive REQUISITES series, this volumes offers all the essentials necessary to pass exams in GI radiology and practice in general radiology. Practicing radiologists will use it as a handy, practical, daily reference tool in this subspecialty area. Covers esophagus, gastroesophageal junction, stomach, duodenum, small bowel, pancreas, liver, spleen, biliary system, gallbladder, colon, and rectum using a problem-based approach. Multimodality in orientation, this new edition will contain more text and illustrations, as well as the following new material: more CT images, more MR images, more nuclear medicine images, larger endoscopic ultrasound sections in both the esophagus and the colorectal chapter, an entire chapter on plain film of the abdomen, a new section on radiological evaluation of dysphagia in the esophagus chapter, and expanded coverage of trauma and abdominal disorders related to AIDS.

* Includes organ-specific chapters, providing structured reading and comprehension of entire GI tract. * Features Examination Techniques sections in seven organ-specific chapters to provide a close look at the richness and diversity of state-of-the-art GI imaging. * Provides a pattern-oriented format to describe patterns of abnormality and correlate them with differential diagnoses, placing principles in a clinical context, and compelling the reader to encounter diseases of the GI tract as a radiologist would in daily practice. * Features a simple narrative style organized by a sophisticated, sensible network of headings for enjoyable and effective learning. * Reveals topics to be covered in chapter-opening outlines for quick location of material. * Includes more than 80boxes and tables which highlight differential diagnoses, specific radiologic presentations of disease, causes, associated conditions, and indications for procedures, which emphasize key facts and concepts to help the reader identify and absorb important information. * Features almost 600 diagrams and optimal-quality, multimodality images to enhance text and explain important concepts. * Offers Suggested Readings lists of pertinent literature to guide the reader to further research and reading as necessary.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Richard M. Gore, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is a brief, introductory survey of the most common disorders affecting the alimentary tract and solid abdominal viscera. The major imaging techniques such as barium studies, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiography are discussed as they relate to the demonstration of abdominal pathology.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the core material, "the requisites" of gastrointestinal radiology and abdominal imaging in a succinct and user-friendly way.
Audience: This book most successfully targets the beginning radiology resident. Senior residents and practicing radiologists may find it useful as a brief review of the subject.
Features: The book is divided into seven chapters: esophagus and gastroesophageal junction, stomach and duodenum, small bowel, pancreas, liver and spleen, biliary system and gallbladder, colon and rectum. Each chapter begins with a brief overview of examination techniques, their indications, and their relative values. The authors then discuss major radiologic patterns such as cystic pancreatic masses, solitary colonic filling defects, and esophageal narrowing. This problem-oriented approach is a major strength of th e book: the reader encounters gastrointestinal diseases the way they are found in clinical practice. The appropriate test is performed yielding radiographic findings, the differential diagnoses of which are narrowed by clinical context.
Assessment: The authors are to be congratulated for distilling the requisites of an enormous and complex field into a readable, practical, and affordable book. Beginning radiology residents would do well to begin their study of gastrointestinal radiology with this book.
