Diagnostic Radiology: Gastrointestinal and Hepatobiliary Imaging

by Niranjan Khandelwal, Veena Chowdhury, Arun Kumar Gupta, Deep Narayan Srivastava

The book comprises of twenty-six chapters covering the radiological and imaging aspects of Hepatobiliary and Gastrointestinal systems in detail. In spite of advancements in various imaging techniques, conventional radiology still remains the mainstay as the initial imaging modality for many abdominal disorders and its interpretation continues to be a great challenge. The importance of plain radiography and barium studies has been described in depth. Techniques of US, CT and the potential role of MRI in evaluation of these disorders have also been explicitly elaborated upon. There are separate sections dedicated to imaging of the liver, biliary tract and pancreas. Clinicopathological aspects with radiological correlation have been discussed in the section on liver with special reference to focal and diffuse, benign and malignant lesions. Biliopathy and pancreatic disorders have been covered at length, with two separate chapters dealing with interventions. Portal hypertension has been discussed in great detail with authors explaining the role of various radiological modalities including US, colour Doppler, angiography and newer imaging techniques. The status of conventional techniques and advances in imaging have been described in an attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of all regions of the GI tract involved by infective, benign, and malignant lesions with special reference to the evaluation of the patients with GI bleed. Encouraged by the response to the previous editions and to keep up with the pace of advances in imaging we decided to update the second edition, delete some and add few new chapters to make the third edition a very comprehensive, updated reference book for postgraduates, practicing radiologists, gastroenterologists and GI surgeons.
