Ultrasound Diagnosis of Digestive Diseases

Front Cover
This book, now available in its third English edition, reflects twenty years of valuable experience in ultrasonography. It appears at a time when the development of abdominal ultrasound has never been so rapid, despite the emergence of alternative modalities such as CT and MRI. The first part of the book features an anatomical and technical introduction, including the basic principles of equipment and the study of artifacts. The second part then studies step-by-step the techniques of examination, sonoanatomy, the ultrasonic features of pathologic processes, the way to differential diagnosis, interventional sonology and finally, multiprocedural strategies. The limitations as well as the advantages of ultrasound are discussed. In such a fast-moving field, this detailed, extensively illustrated book will help both the experienced clinician and those in training to consolidate their knowledge of ultrasound in daily practice.
