We are privileged to practice radiology and abdominal imaging in an era that includes classic radiologic techniques—such as radiography, fluoroscopy, and nuclear medicine—as well as modern state-of the-art high-resolution ultrasound, multidetector computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography computed tomography,
and the advanced postprocessing techniques that can be applied to these imaging data. The combination of these diagnostic radiologic and imaging modalities makes it possible to provide the most accurate and comprehensive diagnostic information to patients and their physicians in a manner that allows for the optimal treatment and management of gastrointestinal diseases. However, for those learning and practicing radiology and abdominal imaging, the amount of information they must acquire about these diseases can be overwhelming. Furthermore, it has been difficult to find a relatively short single-volume reference that concisely encapsulates the most important clinical and pathologic information on gastrointestinal diseases as well as all of the radiologic and imaging modalities used to study them.
Therefore the goal of our textbook is to provide a comprehensive but easy-to-read resource that highlights the most important clinical, pathologic, radiologic, and imaging manifestations of gastrointestinal diseases. It is primarily designed to be used during training on radiology rotations where gastrointestinal diseases are imaged and to place diagnostic considerations into clinical context. Because all radiologic and imaging modalities are discussed with each disease, this textbook can be used during fluoroscopy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound rotations; for exam preparation; and as a reference by practicing radiologists.
As part of the Rotations in Radiology series, Gastrointestinal Imaging provides a comprehensive review of gastrointestinal diseases through its organization by organ and disease. The book is organized into sections that cover all of the hollow and solid gastrointestinal organs, the peritoneal cavity and abdominal wall; finally, there is a multisystem section that covers diseases affecting multiple organs and organ systems. Each major section contains a chapter on normal anatomy, imaging techniques, and principles of interpretation for each specified organ. For each disease, a concise definition and summary of the clinical, pathologic, and imaging manifestations is provided, followed by a bulleted differential diagnosis that highlights the differences between diseases, a summary of key points, and a brief review of current management. The chapters are heavily illustrated with images that show the most important radiologic and imaging features. Anatomic illustrations highlight the key anatomical features that are important for understanding imaging concepts and disease classification.
All chapters are authored by internationally known radiologists who have published authoritative works in their fields of expertise. We greatly thank them for taking the time to contribute to this book. It is essential that they pass their knowledge and expertise on to those using this textbook who are in residency training, studying for exams, or simply referencing material for clinical practice. In short, this text provides the most current imaging concepts and theory for the wide range of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
