- Comprehensive overview of the imaging and pathology appearances of pancreatic neoplasms
- Numerous images of typical and atypical presentations
- Coverage of both common and uncommon tumors will enable radiologists, gastroenterologists and surgeons to better understand and approach pancreatic tumors
Although interest in pancreatic pathology is very high in the radiological and gastroenterological communities, it is still the case that less is known about pathology of the pancreas than about liver pathology, for example. Diagnosis depends on the structure of the pancreatic lesion, which can be directly visualized on US, CT or MR images. This atlas, which encompasses both the imaging and the pathology of pancreatic neoplasms, will therefore be invaluable in enabling radiologists and sonographers to understand the underlying pathology and in allowing pancreatic pathologists to understand the imaging translation.
The emphasis in the atlas is very much on the pathological and imaging appearances, with most of the text concentrated at the beginning of the book. A comprehensive overview is provided of typical and atypical presentations and diverse aspects of common and uncommon pancreatic tumors, including ductal adenocarcinoma, intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, metastases and lymphoma. The atlas will greatly assist radiologists, gastroenterologists and surgeons in better comprehending and therefore better approaching the pancreatic pathology and will also be of much interest for pathologists.
