In recent years, there has been huge interest in developing new methods that offer improved accuracy for the detection of small bowel pathology, and in particular for the assessment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Cross-sectional imaging, such as CT and MR, has advantages over traditional barium fluoroscopic techniques in terms of direct visualization of the bowel wall and improved visualization of extraluminal findings and complications. This means a complete change in the diagnostic approach to the patient with IBD: from analysis of the bowel surface to direct evaluation of parietal alterations and assessment of peri and extraintestinal involvement. The ideal imaging test is reproducible, well tolerated by patients and, above all, free of ionizing radiation. MR enterography, currently performed only in a few reference centers, meets these criteria and offers accurate diagnosis, particularly in respect of the wide spectrum of intra and extraintestinal complications of IBD.This book provides a thorough overview of the indications, techniques, diagnostic advantages and limitations of MR enterography. Particular attention is paid to patient preparation in relation to the particular study type and to the potential advantages of the most up-to-date MR studies in specific cases, e.g., allergy or renal failure. A separate chapter is devoted to MR of perianal region for the detection and staging of perianal fistula, a common complication in patients with Crohn’s disease. Numerous high-quality illustrations are included and help to ensure that the book will be a valuable source of information for every radiologist involved in abdominal MR imaging.

Medical radiography programs will appreciate having an economical textbook that focuses on the practical aspects of digital radiography. Nearly all textbooks to date claiming the title digital radiography have dealt primarily with the managerial aspects of the topic at the expense of any practical information on how digital imaging works and its clinical implications for the daily practice of radiography. The goal of this book is to provide an accurate and adequate description of all the aspects of digital images and digital equipment, and their implications for radiographic technique and clinical application in a student-friendly way by providing crisp, clear illustrations along with readable text. Many of the lucid illustrations in this textbook are from the author's comprehensive textbook, Radiography in the Digital Age (Charles C Thomas, 2018), to make digital radiography comprehensible to the student, but in this book the focus is only on digital topics and the facts are stated with such brief explanatory material as each topic will allow. Many digital topics are intimidating, and every attempt is made to reduce these topics to a descriptive, non-mathematical level that can be intuitively understood by the average student. A helpful glossary is included whenever a concise definition is needed for a particular term.

As duplex ultrasound plays an important role during various venous surgical procedures, its application pre, intra and postoperatively is presented. Furthermore, the sonographic appearances of thrombotic pathology of superficial and deep veins, edema and other conditions that may be observed while exploring the veins are fully described. The book is based on the authors’ extensive clinical experience and is intended to assist fellow practitioners who want to learn more about the technique it will be equally valuable for physicians and technicians. A wealth of informative images is included with the aim of covering every potential situation.
