Diseases of the Upper Gastrointestinal Tract

  • Marc S. Levine

Abstract

The esophagus and stomach are susceptible to a wide spectrum of abnormalities, including inflammatory diseases, ulcers, benign and malignant tumors, and other pathologic conditions. Whereas cross-sectional imaging has become increasingly important in modern radiology practice, barium studies (particularly double-contrast barium studies) continue to have a major role in the evaluation of patients with suspected upper gastrointestinal (GI) disease.
