Description

Combining the advantages of a color atlas with those of a short text, the authors provide systematic coverage of the diseases and disorders of the digestive tract. The book is filled with high quality color imaging and diagrams and includes the latest developments in investigation and management with special attention to refinements in endoscopy and other imaging techniques. The book is ideal for those preparing for higher qualifications in gastroenterology and general medicine, and for physicians and medical students who want a handy general reference source to problems of the digestive system.
