The new edition of the book Normal and Abnormal Swallowing, Second Edition, presents an updated practical approach to the role of imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of the patient with dysphagia. Centered around the "gold standard" imaging modality, i.e. videofluorography, the text also includes chapters on other modalities such as ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. The broad scope of the text makes it the definitive reference work for professionals already involved with patients with dysphagia as well as newcomers interested in learning more about the imaging approaches to these patients. This is a "must read" for professionals in specialities such as radiology, gastroenterology, otolaryngology, rehabilitation medicine and speech language pathology.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"The author writes that her purpose is to present physicians and allied health professionals with anatomy and physiology of the swallowing apparatus. This is urgently needed. . it is not possible to claim that accurate information is unavailable. Read this book! . The book has a handy format. It contains many well-reproduced illustrations of normal and abnormal findings in patients ... . This book is a must for everybody who is ... a radiologist visionary enough to focus on the diagnosis and treatment of dysphagia." (Olle Ekberg, Acta Radiologica, Vol. 44 (4), 2003)"This is the second edition of 'Normal and abnormal swallowing' edited by Bronwyn Jones ... . The chapters on adaptation, compensation and decompensation, pharyngoesophageal inter-relationships and ageing are extremely helpful in everyday practice ... . The concepts and information within these chapters are really one of the strengths of the book . . one of the clearest and most detailed accounts of video-fluoroscopic analysis of swallowing in health and disease and, as such, is a valuable ... read for anyone participating in this field." (Prof. C I Bartram, RAD Magazine, Vol. 29 (336), 2003)
