The aim of this book is to use radiology to convey a clear understanding of the pathophysiology of hepatobiliary disorders and how this can aid diagnosis.
New radiological techniques, such as real-time ultrasonography, 3-D CT and MRI, have revolutionized hepatobiliary diagnosis and practice, and this book helps readers optimize patient care with the use of these methods. The book covers the full range of hepatobiliary diseases in a systematic fashion. While the focus is on imaging and the information that can be gleaned from it, epidemiology, aetiology, pathology, clinical features, treatment and prognosis are also discussed, allowing the reader to consider each disease in context.
The author, Professor Okuda, is one of the world's best known hepatologists and his knowledge is combined with that of leading radiologists to produce a book that balances expertise in both hepatology and radiology.
Hepatobiliary Diseases is aimed primarily at hepatogastroenterologists, and trainees in gastroenterology and hepatology. However, it will also be useful for trainee radiologists who want to correlate their understanding of radiology with disease processes.
