Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"[This title] is a comprehensive, well-written book about the small bowel. The book has been completely revised and expanded since its first edition in 1989 to reflect the significant advancements made in small-bowel imaging over the last decade. This second edition is organized into 23 chapters. The first section consists of three chapters that review the basic anatomy, pathophysiology, and immunology of the small intestine. These chapters are easy to read and include numerous graphs and line drawings that clarify complex topics such as absorptive physiology. The next 10 chapters are dedicated to imaging techniques. The role of cross-sectional imaging¿is thoroughly covered with individual chapters dedicated to sonography, CT and MR imaging. ¿chapters also cover the roles of scintigraphy, angiography, and enteroscopy n small-bowel imaging. ¿.[This title] is easy to read, is well organized, and provides a thorough discussion of small-bowel anatomy, pathology, and imaging findings. It is an excellent resource for radiologists who want to learn more about the current status of small-bowel imaging" -- American Journal of Roentgenology, September 2002"Clinical Imaging of the Small Intestine is a comprehensive, well-written book about the small bowel.
