Each chapter is also accompanied by photographs, diagrams, tables, and algorithms to precisely and easily display complex information.

Written by leading authorities from around the globe, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures in Gastroenterology: An Illustrated Guide, Second Edition is a valuable resource for gastroenterologists, primary care physicians, and gastroenterology fellows in training who treat and manage patients with gastrointestinal disorders.
