imaging and pathology of pancreatic neoplasms a pictorial atlas

imaging and pathology of pancreatic neoplasms a pictorial atlasby mirko d’onofrio and paola capelli

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 chapters. a comprehensive overview is provided of typical and atypical presentations and diverse aspects of common and uncommon pancreatic neoplasms, including ductal adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine neoplasms, intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, cystic neoplasms, metastases and lymphoma.

imaging of ulcerative colitis 2

by massimo tonolini (editor)

during the past decade, the medical and surgical treatment of ulcerative colitis has undergone dramatic advances, including the widespread use of immunomodulators, biological drugs, and restorative procolectomy. in order to correctly balance the risks and benefits of medical therapies and surgical procedures, there is a need for improved diagnosis of colonic disease, acute complications, extraintestinal manifestations, and early and delayed postoperative complications. cross-sectional imaging techniques are therefore playing an increasing role in the assessment of ulcerative colitis and provide an essential complement to clinical data and endoscopy. this practical,illustrated volume on the role of cross-sectional imaging is aimed at radiologists, gastroenterologists, and surgeons who are engaged or interested in the diagnosis and care of patients with inflammatory bowel disease, particularly ulcerative colitis. after an overview of diagnostic imaging techniques, state-of-the-art assessment of colorectal inflammatory disease with ct colonography using water enema is discussed, followed by description of the plain radiographic and ct findings in patients with acute exacerbations and surgical complications. subsequent chapters review the diagnostic findings and role of cross-sectional imaging in the assessment of sclerosing cholangitis (with emphasis on mr cholangiopancreatography), vascular complications (particularly portal and mesenteric thrombosis), associated neoplasms, such as colorectal cancer and abdominal desmoids, and perianal inflammatory disease. normal postoperative appearances and early and delayed complications in patients treated with procolectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis are also comprehensively reviewed.
