Description

Comprehensively covers the rich spectrum of radiologic digestive disease interventions

Greater understanding of gastrointestinal disease has resulted in an evolving array of minimally invasive and noninvasive techniques. Significant advances have maximized patient comfort, improved clinical outcomes, and minimized morbidity. Interventional radiologists are integral to the management of patients with a wide range of digestive disorders, often providing a critical or sole therapeutic option. The field has evolved from a procedure-based radiology subspecialty to a patient-based, clinical specialty working in concert with internists, gastroenterologists, oncologists, and surgeons.

Digestive Disease Interventions edited by Baljendra Kapoor and Jonathan Lorenz fills an unmet need for a comprehensive resource covering interventional approaches. Throughout 30 succinct yet comprehensive chapters, top experts detail image-guided gastrointestinal interventions. A full spectrum of pathologies are encompassed — from benign refractory ascites and biliary strictures, to hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, pancreatic cancer, and more.
