Overview

New edition of a text on the problem of differentiating among the various diagnostic possibilities suggested by radiographic findings in gastrointestinal imaging, with an emphasis on looking for patterns. For each finding, information is presented on the possible underlying disorder, together with several b&w illustrations. Eisenberg (U. of California and Highland Hospital) presents 80 chapters that discuss the esophagus, diaphragm, stomach, duodenum, small bowel, ileocecal valve and cecum, colon, biliary system, miscellaneous issues, and ultrasound, CT and MR of the gallbladder, liver, and spleen. New material deals with the impact of newer modalities such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, and MRI of the liver. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
