Pathology of early / superficial gastrointestinal cancer.- Diagnosis of superficial esophageal neoplasia: Endoscopic diagnosis & classification.- Diagnosis of early gastric cancer: Endoscopic diagnosis & classification.- Diagnosis of early colorectal carcinoma: Endoscopic diagnosis & classification.- Diagnosis of Barretts esophagitis and early adenocarcinoma.- Novel endoscopic technology for diagnosing and staging early GI cancers.- Case Atlas and illustrations.
Endoscopy in Early Gastrointestinal Cancers, Volume 1: Diagnosis provides detailed information of the technique of novel endoscopic diagnostic tools including magnifying endoscopy, narrow band imaging system (NBI), autofluorescence endoscopy (AFI), endocytoscopy, FICE and confocal endomicroscopy.
Carcinoma of the gastrointestinal tract remained a major health issue worldwide, which is, however notoriously difficult to treat. One of the major reasons for such a poor result is that these cancers are diagnosed at advanced stage. There is a recent increase in the number of gastrointestinal cancers diagnosed at early stage. This is attributed to an increasing recognition of these early stage cancers through a recent development in the technology of endoscopy. This book on the endoscopic diagnosis of early GI neoplasia, containing lots of illustrations, artwork and numerous short video clips, serves as a bridge between the recent development in endoscopy and the knowledge of gastroenterologist, endoscopist and surgeons.
