About this book


This book covers all topics related to the imaging of organ transplantation. An introductory section addresses such issues as organ procurement, patient selection, immune responses, and ethical and economic considerations. The main part of the book then offers in-depth coverage of heart, renal, liver, lung, bone marrow and pancreatic and intestinal transplantation. Each of these topics is discussed firstly in a clinical chapter and then in a radiological chapter. The clinical chapters detail the epidemiology, clinical background, and surgical procedures, as well as any clinically relevant issues of which the radiologist should be aware. The radiological chapters describe and depict the imaging manifestations of specific organ transplantations, document the normal radiological appearance of transplanted organs and consider both early and late complications. This is a unique, superbly illustrated volume that will be of great assistance to all who work in this field.

From the reviews:

"This book provides an overview of patient selection and imaging evaluation in the pre-, early post-, and delayed post-transplant recipient. … Residents and staff clinicians and radiologists interested or involved in the care of transplant patients would benefit from mastering the information in this book. The editor and authors certainly demonstrate their expertise in the evaluation, management, and imaging of pre- and post-transplant patients. … Overall, this is an excellent resource for any physician delivering care to the pre/post transplant patient." (Dan A. Devun Jr., Doody’s Review Service, January, 2008)

"Imaging in Transplantation is one in a series of textbooks on medical radiology and diagnostic imaging. ... The chapters are well researched and supported by a good number of references. ... I highly recommend this book to surgeons, radiologists, internists, and other subspecialists in internal medicine who are active in the field. ... it will also improve or reinforce the knowledge of senior physicians and radiologist and would make a good addition to their personal libraries." (Usha A. Joseph, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 49 (9), September, 2008)

"The primary purpose of this textbook is to provide the nonspecialized radiologist with an easily accessible comprehensive manual that covers essential and relevant diagnostic topics in the imaging of transplantation. … provide a multidisciplinary approach to diagnostic imaging in the field of transplantation medicine. … The book is well structured, and both a nonspecialized radiologist and a resident or fellow who were searching for information would enjoy the readily comprehensive descriptions. … Practicing radiologists will enjoy this well structured and nicely illustrated textbook." (Peter Reimer, Radiology, Vol. 252 (1), July, 2009)
