With the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations, this volume explains the strengths and limitations of the different techniques employed in the imaging of pancreatitis. Ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and interventional imaging are each considered separately in the settings of acute and chronic pancreatitis. A further section is devoted to imaging of the complications of these conditions. Throughout, care has been taken to ensure that the reader will achieve a sound understanding of how the imaging findings derive from the pathophysiology of the disease processes. The significance of the imaging findings for clinical and therapeutic decision making is clearly explained, and protocols are provided that will assist in obtaining the best possible images.Table of contents Pathophysiology of Acute Pancreatitis.- Clinical Aspects of Acute Pancreatitis: Features, Prognosis and Use of Imaging Findings in Therapeutic Decision Making.- The Role of Ultrasound .- The Role of Computed Tomography.- The Role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Magnetic Resonance Cholangio-Pancreatography.-Imaging of Pancreatic Trauma.-Pathophysiology of Chronic Pancreatitis.- Clinical Aspects of Chronic Pancreatitis: Features and Prognosis.- Pathological Findings in Chronic Pancreatitis.- The Role of Ultrasound and Endoscopic Ultrasound.-The Role of CT .- The Role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Magnetic Resonance.- The Role of ERCP.- Pathophysiology of Complications of Acute and Chronic Pancreatitis.- Clinical Aspects of Complications: Features and Prognosis.- Imaging of Pseudocysts .- Imaging of Biliary and Vascular Complications.- Imaging of Local Extension and Fistulas.- Chronic Pancreatitis Versus Pancreatic Tumors.- Clinical Perspective.- The Role of Endoscopy .- Surgical Perspective.- Subject Index.- List of Contributors.
