Clinical Imaging of the Small Intestine offers a complete review of small bowel radiology and its applications. With contributions from leading international authorities, the book provides the reader with the pertinent aspects of gastrointestinal radiology, specifically the problems of technique and interpretation that confront radiologists.
The second edition was revised to include: - CT and MRI of the small bowel; - Sonography of the small bowel; - Assessing the activity of Crohn's disease with MRI; - Vascular disorders and small bowel obstructions; - Immune deficiency diseases; - Differential diagnosis based on both pathologic and radiologic findings; - New Figures and expanded index.
The comprehensive scope of coverage makes this book a highly specialized but nonetheless state-of-the-art reference for those practitioners who have an interest in learning more about intestinal imaging, including radiologists, gastroenterologists and surgeons.
