Using numerous high-quality illustrations, this volume assesses strengths and limitations of techniques for the imaging of pancreatitis. Ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and interventional imaging are considered separately in the settings of acute and chronic pancreatitis, with an additional section on imaging of complications. The significance of the imaging findings for clinical and therapeutic decision making is clearly explained, and protocols are provided to help obtain the best possible images.
All authors have published extensively in pancreatitis. Drs. Balthazar and Megibow have developed a classification system of acute pancreatitis used world-wide; Professor Pozzi-Mucelli is the Chairman of Radiology at one of the largest pancreatic centres in Europe.
