About this book

This atlas is a selection of roentgenograms of patients who visited the radiology departments at the University Hospital in Leiden between 1970 and 1978, the Free University Hospital in Amsterdam in 1979, and the radiology department at the Indiana University Medical School in Indianapolis in 1977. The most common radiological abnormalities of the small intestine are illustrated clearly, unhindered by flocculation or segmentation of the contrast fluid. The authors believe this book is a definite contribution to the goal of precise early small bowel diagnosis. However, the key to good diagnosis is not only a superb examination technique, but also the knowledge, the character, and the personal perfectionism of the physician. If these factors are optimal, then the best possible roentgenographic series will be obtained - at least as far as the technique is concerned. All patients illustrated here were examined by using the enteroclysis technique. With this method of small bowel examination, the contrast fluid is administered via an infusion directly into the duodenum instead of orally. The infusion method has added a new dimension to the usual radiological examination of the small intestine. This method is also especially suited for the comparative evaluation of motility, and the study of disturbed motility. Throughout the course of the examination, the technique can be adapted to special situations at any given moment and can be modified to produce precise diagnostic roentgenograms and diagnosis.

Reviews

`In summary, the high standard of radiology of the small bowel using modern enteroclysis technique and their result by Sellink and Miller is once again most impressive. This volume is an invaluable reference for radiologists and gastroenterologists.'
European Journal of Nuclear Medicine, 8:9 (1983)
`This is a cathedral of a book, full of detail, fussy, tiring, but in the end grand. ... The text is comprehensive and the book is lavishly illustrated. ... The chapter on technique is excellent and describes in detail the factors necessary for obtaining consistently good results. ... This book should stimulate radiologists to take a greater interest in the subject and a copy of the book should be available in all departmental libraries.'
The British Journal of Radiology, 56:669 (1983)
'Although entitled as an atlas, the book has a large amount of excellent material. The illustrations are of outstanding quality. ... This book is destined to become a classic in the radiologic literature and is highly recommended to all readers interested in diseases of the small bowel.'
The New England Journal of Medicine
`The authors and the publisher are to be congratulated for the outstanding illustrations with more than 1,000 uniformly superb radiographs. No radiograph less than excellent has been allowed... The text fully covers the complex subject and correlates well with the illustrations. ... Certainly the radiologist who wishes to offer comlete gastrointestinal radiology needs to include enteroclysis and needs to have this book.'
American Journal of Roentgenology
`This is quite a splendid atlas which will be indispensable to any radiologist wishing to explore this technique. It should be available to all trainees in radiology who are likely to be encouraged by the superb illustrations of a wide range of small bowel pathology to try out the method for themselves.'
Gut
`Radiology of the Small Bowel is a major contribution to a field which deserves more attention to detail and technique. ... The authors have produced an extremely well-organized and well-written atlas that contains a tremendous amount of beautifully illustrated pathologic material. The book succeeds in describing the proper technique of enteroclysis and in illustrating all conceivable abnormalities of the small bowel. The quality of the printing and illustrations is superior... This wonderfully written and illustrated atlas is a valuable contribution to the literature. ...recommended for general radiologists, gastrointestinal radiologists, and gastroenterologists.'
Radiology
`An excellent atlas of pathologic anatomy as demonstrated by enteroclysis. Almost all conceivable small bowel lesions are demonstrated and discussed. ...the illustrations are unusually good.'
Gastroenterology
