Gastrointestinal Radiology: A Pattern Approach

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2003 - Medical - 1193 pages
Unique among all medical texts on the subject, this volume provides a direct, stepwise approach to the differential diagnosis of abnormal findings on gastrointestinal radiographs. This singular book promptly gives physicians in training and in practice the information they need to reach the best clinical diagnosis.

Each of the book's 80 chapters shows a specific radiographic pattern...lists every disease entity it could possibly be...and helps the reader confirm, refine, or reject differential diagnoses. Using a "pattern approach," individual chapters focus on specific radiologic abnormal appearances rather than disease entities and outline the typical signs, symptoms, and predisposing factors for the abnormality. This edition features hundreds of new images and a new section on MRI of the liver.
