About this book


Imaging of Gastrointestinal Tract Tumors describes current imaging practice for the most commonly encountered benign and malignant digestive tract tumors and gives a review of the literature for less frequent tumors. General features (anatomic data, frequency, clinical and biologic signs, treatment) are discussed for all pathologies prior to description of imaging techniques, which include barium studies, ultrasonography and angiography, and above all CT. MRI appears particularly indicated for esophageal carcinoma and pelvic recurrences of colorectal cancers. The book is divided into three main section - benign tumors, malignant tumors, and tumors with an indeterminate prognosis - reflecting the value of different imaging strategies as a function of a tumor's natural history. The thorough analysis of literature for both frequent and less common tumors allows global evaluation of the diagnostic possibilities of imaging techniques, making Imaging of Gastrointestinal Tract Tumors a reference work for all specialists concerned with digestive tract pathologies.
