Whereas during the past decade endoscopy has become established as the leading means of diagnosis and management of diseases affecting the esophagus, starnach and large bowel, radiology has retained its pre-eminence for the clinical study and evaluation of the small bowel. This book provides unique coverage of all current radiological techniques used to study the small bowel, including not only barium studies and angiography but also cross-sectional methods such as uhrasound and computer tomography as well as nuclear medicine. Ernerging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging are given close consideration, and interventional procedures are dealt with fully. Following an introduction on anatomy, physiology, and pathology pertinent to radiol­ ogy, the book describes in great detail common and less common congenital and development anomalies, trauma, infectious and infl.ammatory conditions, and tumors. The radiological accounts are illustrated by unique color photographs of pathological specimens. It is important for all professionals involved in the management of patients with small-bowel disease tobe critically informed about the specific advantages as well as the limitations of the various modern imaging techniques now employed for the in vivo morphological evaluation of the small bowel. This comprehensive book provides a timely update of our knowledge in this field and is a welcome addition to our series "Medical Radiology;' which aims to provide exhaustive coverage of modern diagnostic radiology. It will be of great interest for general and abdominal radiologists, gastroen­ terologists, and abdominal surgeons.

The approach of this book is helpful for both trainees and those already in radiology practice, particularly for those in the field of abdominal imaging." (M. Nino-Murcia, Abdominal Imaging, Vol. 29 (1), 2004)"This single-volume textbook comprehensively details imaging of the small intestine in a manner that is appropriately suited both for general radiologists and for those who practice gastrointestinal radiology in an academic setting. . The organizational structure of the text is unique and refreshing. . This text is well organized, easy to reference, and easy to read. . Radiologic Imaging of the Small Intestine is an excellent text that flows well, has a unique and refreshing structure, and provides a thorough review." (Laura R. Carucci, Radiology, March, 2004)"This book is focused on the topic of diagnostic imaging of the small intestine which surely represents a relevant issue in the daily radiological activity. . The clinical and diagnostic value guaranteed by the editor and his excellent choice of experienced co-authors encourages the purchase of this book which may well become an updated standard of reference that we should have at hand . ." (C. Bartolozzi, European Radiology, Vol. 13 (3), 2003)"This text has 39 contributors . . All the chapters have impressive lists of references, 'up to the minute' in many instances. . the index of this volume is excellent, making it quick to access the required information . . Radiological Imaging of the Small Intestine deserves a place not only on library shelves but also among the reference books of surgical and medical gastroenterologists and radiologists." (Ray Glyn Thomas, South African Journal of Surgery, Vol. 41 (2), 2003)"Professor Gourtsoyiannis is to be congratulated on being able to collect contributions from the best known authorities on radiology of the gastrointestinal tract. . The publisher, Springer, is also to be congratulated on its speed of publishing the books in this diagnostic imaging series. . This book delivers a comprehensive and well-illustrated account of imaging of small bowel disease." (Dr. A H Chapman, RAD Magazine, January, 2003)"Nicholas Gourtsoyiannis is a leading authority in radiology of the small intestine. A book edited by him is undoubtedly an event of great interest to all radiologists who work with gastrointestinal diagnoses. . it provides clear disposition, numerous illustrations of excellent quality and useful reference lists. . The present book is warmly recommended to all radiologists . ." (Sven Nilsson, Acta Radiologica, Vol. 44 (2), 2003)
