For the new English edition, this highly popular book has been thoroughly revised and updated to include the enormous progress seen recently in the field of ultrasonography. After an extensive technical introduction the book covers the sonoanatomy and ultrasonic symptomatology of the diseases of the digestive system and the abdominal vessels. New chapters deal with portal hypertension, the intestine, including appendicitis, endoscopic ultrasonography of carcinomas and abdominal abnormalities arising from AIDS. In such a fast-moving medical 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.
