Teaching atlas of abdominal imaging

      This book offers a comprehensive case-by-case review of common and uncommon pathologies involving the different systems in the abdominal cavity and facing the radiologist in his/her daily practice. The book is subdivided into several sections: section I presents the pathologies involving the liver, and section II those involving the gallbladder and the bile ducts. Section III deals with lesions of the pancreas and section IV with lesions involving the spleen. In section V, the pathologies involving the urinary tract are reviewed, and in section VI, those involving the adrenals. An in-depth review of lesions involving the gastrointestinal tract, peritoneal cavity, and retroperitoneum is in section VII. The abnormalities of the bladder, the female genital pelvis, and the male genital pelvis are presented in the sections VII and IX. In the special section (section X) are five very useful appendices each one presenting 64-slice protocols for routine abdomen and pelvic CT scan; for dual-phase liver CT scan; for evaluation of hematuria; for pancreatic CT scan; and for evaluation of adrenal mass.
