Diagnostic Radiology: Gastrointestinal and Hepatobiliary Imaging

by Niranjan Khandelwal, Arun Kumar Gupta, Deep Narayan Srivastava, Anju Garg, Raju Sharma

The aim of this book is to focus on the diagnostic radiology: gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary imaging. There has been a tremendous change in the approach to the diagnosis of abdominal diseases in the last decade, making the imaging of gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary system as one of the most interesting and challenging specialties to the radiologists. The book comprises 31 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, color Doppler, angiography and newer imaging techniques. This book—both instructive and informative—for the improved use of imaging resources, which will help to serve the common goal of good health care and management of patients everywhere.
