Some years ago, when I started my endoscopy practice, I was fortunate enough to have the back up of some experienced colleagues and a well-equipped institutional library having a few elegant books on the subject. But not all young doctors who wish to get initiated and practice endoscopy are as fortunate. ‘Can you suggest me some good atlas on endoscopy?’ is the usual request from most of them. I must confess that, despite my several years of practice, I have not been able to gather the courage to possess a personal copy of even a single atlas. Almost all the available atlases are, by Western authors, expensive and largely inaccessible. In the absence of proper guidance, either from a senior colleague or from an atlas, the young endoscopist largely depends on his ‘clinical sense’ to interpret the endoscopic findings. Needless to say, this results in serious errors and blunders. It is appalling to find esophageal varices being misdiagnosed as tumors or an advanced gastric carcinoma as erosive gastritis and so on. Hence, a great need was felt to compile one such atlas that is within the reach of the young endoscopists, without of course compromising the contents and quality.
