Endoscopy is a technically challenging procedure. Until recently it was regarded as a routine procedure that could be performed by general gastroenterologists until outcome and follow-up analyses revealed unacceptably high levels of complications. The opinion-leaders in endoscopy have brought about a shift in attitude. The emphasis is now very much on a 'back to basics' approach with retraining recommended for all levels of doctors performing endoscopy - and several techniques restricted to only the very experienced.

This series is aimed at the endoscopist with some experience who wishes to achieve competency in the more advanced techniques.

The book includes information and guidelines for all aspects of practice management relating to endoscopy. It provides a practical manual on how to perform techniques in the most safe and effective ways to reduce complications.

It covers training, endoscopy and imaging equipment, set-up of endoscopy units, cleaning & disinfection and patient preparation and monitoring. It also contains techniques for screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up from THE leading international names.

Key Features
  • Provides a practical manual on how to perform techniques safely and effectively in order to maximise value, and to reduce risks.
  • Covers training, endoscopy and imaging equipment, infection control, patient preparation and monitoring, complications and how to avoid and deal with them.
  • Contains techniques for screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up from THE leading international names.
  • Includes information and guidelines for all aspects of practice management relating to endoscopy.

About the Author
  • Peter Cotton was born in England, educated at Cambridge University and at St. Thomas Hospital Medical School (London). He became interested in endoscopy in the late 1960’s with the introduction of flexible fiberscopes, and developed units at St. Thomas’ Hospital and at the Middlesex Hospital, which pioneered and evaluated many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, particularly ERCP. He attracted postgraduates from many countries, held numerous teaching courses, and introduced live CCTV workshops. In 1986 he became Professor of Medicine and Chief of Endoscopy at Duke University in North Carolina, and developed a state of the art endoscopy center. He maintained his interests in teaching, new techniques, and careful outcome evaluation. He moved to Charleston, South Carolina in 1994 to initiate and lead a Digestive Disease Center, dedicated to multi-disciplinary patient care, and the research and education needed to enhance it.

Ultrasonography (US) has long been considered an important diagnostic imaging modality for investigation of the pancreas despite certain significant and well-known limitations. Indeed, in many countries US represents the first step in the diagnostic algorithm for pancreatic pathologies. Recent years have witnessed major advances in conventional, harmonic, and Doppler imaging.

New technologies, softwares, and techniques, such as volumetric imaging, enhancement quantification, and fusion imaging, are increasing the diagnostic capabilities of US. The injection of microbubble contrast agents allows better tissue characterization with definitive differentiation between solid and cystic lesions. Contrast-enhanced US improves the characterization of pancreatic tumors, assists in local and liver staging, and can offer savings in both time and money. Acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging is a promising new US method to test, without manual compression, the mechanical strain properties of deep tissues. Furthermore, the applications and indications for interventional, endoscopic, and intraoperative US have undergone significant improvement and refinement.

Ultrasonography of the Pancreas: Imaging & Pathologic Correlations provides a complete overview of all these technological developments and their impact on the assessment of pancreatic pathologies. Percutaneous, endoscopic, and intraoperative US of the pancreas are discussed in detail, with precise description of findings and with informative imaging (CT and MRI) and pathologic correlations.

Key Features

Gore and Levine: High-Yield Imaging: Gastrointestinal (Expert Consult Series)

Patients with abdominal and pelvic disease often present with a perplexing constellation of radiographic findings demonstrated on a variety of different imaging examinations. This imaging conundrum occurs on a daily basis and in the setting of increasingly busy workloads. The harried radiologist has scant time to interpret and report confusing imaging findings on abdominal imaging studies, much less review the literature or perform a rushed “Google” search to facilitate the diagnostic interpretation of such cases. As a result, these diagnostic dilemmas can become forgotten enigmas, as the radiologist moves on quickly to the next case.

The purpose of High-Yield Imaging: Gastrointestinal as one of several teaching tools in the ongoing series of High-Yield texts from Elsevier is to provide user-friendly, hardcopy and web-based resources that the practicing radiologist can use to quickly and easily confirm a suspected diagnosis or generate a reasonable differential when the diagnosis is in doubt. The text has been organized into a series of topics on virtually every pathologic condition affecting the gastrointestinal tract, including the hollow organs (pharynx, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small bowel, colon, and rectum), solid viscera (gallbladder and biliary tract, liver, pancreas, and spleen), and peritoneal cavity (peritoneum, retroperitoneum, mesentery, omentum, and abdominal wall).

Each topic contains brief, concise sections on the anatomic findings, clinical presentation, incidence/prevalence/epidemiology, imaging findings, and differential diagnosis, as well as a brief synopsis of what the referring physician needs to know. Each section is formatted as a bulleted list for rapid extraction of the relevant clinical information and imaging features of the disease by the reader. Each topic also contains several pertinent radiographs to illustrate the important imaging features. We believe this format is extremely user friendly, enabling the practicing radiologist to approach the text in a “hit and run” style for maximum information with a minimum of effort in order to better diagnose challenging cases without disrupting a busy clinical schedule.

The guiding principle of this resource is to illustrate and integrate the spectrum of abnormalities seen on all abdominal imaging studies, including conventional radiography, single-contrast and double-contrast barium studies, cholangiography, multidetector CT, ultrasonography, MRI, PET, PET/CT, and angiography.

We believe we have achieved our goal of creating a concise, well-illustrated, practical text on gastrointestinal/abdominal imaging for the busy radiologist, but, of course, we welcome your input.

Berquist: MRI of the Musculoskeletal System 5th Edition

The Fourth Edition of MRI of the Musculoskeletal System text was published in 2001. Since that time, new magnet configurations (extremity, open) and higher field strengths (3 T) have begun to impact the practice for musculoskeletal magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Coupled with improvements in software, pulse sequences, and examination techniques, the musculoskeletal applications for MR imaging have expanded dramatically. Gadolinium use for intravenous, intraarticular, and angiographic imaging has become routine. Spectroscopy in the clinical setting is also more commonly employed, though not to the level of more conventional imaging techniques.

The Fifth Edition of MRI of the Musculoskeletal System provides significant updates on principles, techniques, and applications for musculoskeletal imaging.
  • Chapter 1 reviews basic principles of physics, pulse sequences, and terminology, using an approach that is easy to read and comprehend. 
  • Chapter 2 provides essentials of interpretation with many new images and pulse sequences to explain the signal changes of pathologic tissues compared to signal intensity of normal tissue. 
  • Chapter 3 discusses safety issues, sedation, patient selection, patient positioning, coil selection, pulse sequences, and the uses of gadolinium for musculoskeletal imaging. 
  • Chapters 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 are anatomically oriented, with new anatomic MR images in each chapter. Improved images using new techniques the expanded applications are reviewed in each chapter. Pediatric applications are included in these anatomic chapters as appropriate.
  • A thorough discussion of musculoskeletal neoplasms and neoplasm-like conditions is included in Chapter 12. 
  • Chapter 13 is dedicated to musculoskeletal infections, including soft tissue, osseous, articular, spondylopathy, and postoperative infections. 
  • Chapter 14 provides in-depth coverage of diffuse marrow diseases. 
  • Chapter 15 is designed to review miscellaneous and evolving MR imaging applications. 
  • The final chapter, Chapter 16, updates clinical uses of spectroscopy.

New technology has led to a significant increase in the utility of MRI for evaluation of the musculoskeletal system. This edition provides a thorough review of anatomy, techniques, and applications, with many new images. This text will be of use to physicians, residents, students, and other health professionals who perform or request MR imaging examinations.

Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) offers an excellent opportunity to optimize the therapeutic ratio in radiation oncology through maximizing tumor coverage and sparing normal tissue by appropriate clinical input and precise computer algorithms. This cutting edge technology is being used not only in academic institutions, but also in community clinics. The increasing need for essential practical guidelines to address clinical indication, imaging interpretation, target delineation, and plan optimization has inspired the genesis of the 2nd edition of Practical Essentials of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy.

In this book, a practical overview of IMRT physics, quality assurance, and treatment planning and optimization are first given in Chapters 1 and 2. Because successful implementation of IMRT depends on proficient understanding in anatomical imaging (computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging), pertinent information to update readers on this topic is provided in Chapters 3 and 4 for brain, head and neck, urological, and gynecological cancers. Further, integrating functional imaging to assist in more accurate target delineation or for dose escalation may soon be a clinical reality, we elicit the process and caution of incorporating functional images for IMRT planning in Chapter 5.

In the first edition, we provided practical guidance for IMRT in the management of head and neck cancer patients. Because IMRT utilization has become more widespread, the 2nd edition expands the breadth of coverage to include concise, relevant overviews of the natural course, diagnostic criteria, therapeutic options, as well as up-to-date IMRT treatment guidelines for other various tumor sites. Chapters 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 provide updated information and results on head and neck cancers with a new Chapter 13 on thyroid carcinoma. New chapters encompassing breast, thoracic, esophageal, prostate, and gynecological cancers are included with high quality of illustration to assist reader in target determination and delineation (Chapters 15, 16, 17, 18 and 20, 21).

We emphasize the importance of understanding basic anatomy and the corresponding imaging sections that are being used for target and normal tissue determination and delineation. Accordingly, more than 350 full-color, detailed illustrations are provided to clarify each step in the clinical implementation of IMRT. We believe this new edition will assist residents, fellows, and clinicians of radiation oncology in learning the practical essentials for the clinical evaluation, decision-making, and technical proficiency of IMRT for multiple disease sites. The information presented in this book will continue to be refined, as rapid accumulation of clinical experience and evolution of imaging and targeting techniques have become so evident.

Book Review 
A revolution has been taking place in radiation oncology over the last 15 years. Although it began many years before, the evolution of conformal radiation therapy (CRT) escalated dramatically between 1993 and 1996. Treatment planning for CRT migrated from very progressive individual institutions to commercial availability and widespread use in the radiation oncology community. Treatment planning systems have continued to evolve over the past decade and treatment delivery capability has largely caught up with the planning capability. It has also become possible to archive three-dimensional images including dose distributions. This permits research relating normal tissue volumes to toxicity and holds the promise of better defining normal tissue complication probabilities based on volumes irradiated.
Whereas three-dimensional CRT has become standard, intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is still evolving. The broad field of image guided radiation therapy of which IMRT is an important part, is constantly developing as a function of improved imaging of tumors and surrounding normal tissues. The ability to fuse images, especially anatomic and metabolic images, is only beginning to be appreciated with reference to specific clinical problems. Although there is broad availability of IMRT planning and delivery capability, there is still much uncertainty about proper use of IMRT. In addition, limited numbers of medical physicists limit implementation of IMRT.
The second edition of Practical Essentials of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy is very ambitious. It sets the stage for a contemporary exposé of IMRT physics, treatment planning, and quality assurance. It explores the imaging techniques available for image-guided radiation therapy in multiple anatomic locations. Great emphasis is placed on malignant tumors arising in the head and neck. The anatomic constraints and issues related to target delineation in these locations help define the problems and possibilities clearly when there is no motion related to the tumor location day to day. However, in the thorax, and even in the pelvis, tumor motion is a matter of concern. The anatomic location of the tumor must be established daily or the tumor must be immobilized with a great degree of certainty. These efforts are progressing at a very rapid rate, to assure optimal utilization of IMRT and even set the seen for proton beam therapy in the few institutions where such capability is or will be available.
As was the case for the first edition of this important textbook, the reader will find a clear articulation of current state of the art in advanced treatment planning, target determination, target delineation, and dose delivery with the heaviest emphasis on IMRT. It provides a strong foundation upon which the medical community is continuing to build. Practical issues and constraints related to target delineation are elaborated extensively in this text. What also becomes clear is the continued evolution in this exciting and demanding domain in radiation oncology. Although it is critical to have such capability articulated carefully and fully in the second edition of this important work, the need for additional editions is apparent from the rate of change, indicated by the progress that has been made between the first and second editions of this work.

Kavanagh: Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) represents the newest plateau in the art and science of radiation oncology. Previously unimaginable radiation doses are administered precisely and non-invasively in an aggressive, decisive action to eradicate a discrete focus of cancer.
SBRT has evolved as a result of enormous technological advances in image-guided therapy. As the name implies, the technology involves the use of external fiducial markers referenced in 3-D space to internal targets, allowing stereotactic guidance of treatment to targets within the body. Previously applied monikers included the term “Stereotactic Radioablation,” which conveyed the sense that the high-dose treatment is intended to ablate, or completely eradicate, targeted tumors. “Extracranial Radiosurgery” is another popular term, appealing insofar as it reflects the debt SBRT owes to cranial radiosurgery, through which the concept of stereotactic localization has been refined. However, as discussed in the book, “radiosurgery” generally implies a single fraction course of treatment, whereas SBRT is quite commonly administered in a hypofractioned regimen of 3-5 fractions.
Equally important for the development of SBRT have been the accomplishments in diagnostic imaging and systemic therapy during the last decade. High-quality CT, MRI, and PET scans can provide very accurate information about the exact locations of measurable deposits of tumor cells within a cancer patient's body. Newer chemotherapy combinations and novel growth factor-targeted drugs have achieved significant improvements in progression-free survival for many solid tumors. The complementary role of SBRT, then, is to provide directly cytotoxic treatment focally to the clinically evident disease sites that are unlikely to be cleared with systemic agents alone. Competing with SBRT in this regard are the numerous invasive methodologies for accomplishing this same goal, namely surgical resection and temperature-based therapies (radiofrequency ablation and cryosurgery). The advantage of SBRT in many cases is the greatly reduced toxicity profile, lack of invasiveness, and capacity to deliver the treatment entirely on an outpatient basis.
This book is partly constructed as an educational tool for all oncologists to promote understanding of the power and elegance of SBRT as a new and important weapon in the cancer-fighting arsenal. Modern multidisciplinary management strategies mandate input from radiation, medical, and surgical oncologists—and we all need to keep sight of the expanding frontiers of each other's primary modalities.
At the same time that we acknowledge that SBRT is made possible by technological progress in medical physics, we must concede that SBRT will only be implemented safely and effectively with an appreciation of the underlying basic and clinical radiobiology. In their learned contribution to this book, Dr. Fowler and colleagues explain that to attain a high probability of actually killing off a tumor with radiation, it requires a biologically very potent dose—much more than is generally given with conventionally fractionated treatment.
Here is the catch: if you give the tumor a large dose of radiation, then some adjacent normal tissue will get a large dose as well. Fortunately, with careful attention to technique, it is frequently possible to steer the radiation toward the tumor from enough different directions that only a very small rim of normal tissue is affected noticeably. Just how much radiation can really be given with SBRT remains to be seen, and the radiation oncology community needs to continue careful clinical-biologicalphysics-inclusive translational research to establish where the reasonable safe limits really are. In seeking great success, we risk great failure, so we are compelled to work together.
The book is also, then, intended to be a primer for radiation oncologists, physicists, radiobiologists, dosimetrists, therapists, and other invaluable members of the team who wish to become comfortable with emerging techniques that raise radiotherapy to bold new heights.
