Abstract
In this book, leading international experts describe and discuss the various techniques available for the screening, diagnosis, management, and follow-up of digestive diseases, providing clinically useful, up-to-date reviews that draw upon their own experience and focus attention on the most recent advances in the field. Among the wide range of topics covered are the use of confocal laser endomicroscopy in the gastrointestinal tract, endoscopic suture systems, endoscopic submucosal dissection, per oral endoscopic myotomy, and cholangioscopy systems. The experience of a leading surgical group in the application of endoscopic radiofrequency ablation in pancreatic cancer is reported, and new surgical and endoscopic techniques for the treatment of Zenker's diverticulum are proposed. The closing chapters examine the present and future of esophageal motility testing and the diagnostic yield of novel parameters in reflux monitoring. In addition to the discussion of techniques, advice is provided on training, endoscopy and imaging equipment, and set-up of endoscopy units during procedures.
Contents
1. Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy in GI Tract -- 2. OTSC System in All Possible Applications -- 3. Radiofrequency Ablation of Pancreatic Mass -- 4. TEM and TAMIS for Large Rectal Neoplasm -- 5. Unusual Applications of Metal Stents in Gastrointestinal Tract -- 6. Endoscopic Suturing Systems -- 7. Endoluminal Therapy for Treatment of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease -- 8.

Abstract
This book comprehensively reviews imaging of the pediatric gastrointestinal tract and accessory digestive organs from a practical approach. Starting with a brief discussion on techniques this is followed by a couple of comprehensive chapters covering emergency/acute pediatric abdominal imaging. A series of traditional anatomically structured chapters on the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon and accessory organs then follow. Each chapter carefully considers the role of the currently available imaging techniques and discusses and illustrates diagnostic dilemmas. The closing chapter focuses on pediatric interventional procedures performed with imaging guidance. Since the first edition, the text has been fully updated and new illustrations included. Against the background of rapid advances in imaging technology and the distinctive aspects of gastrointestinal imaging in children and infants, this volume will serve as an essential reference for general and pediatric radiologists as well as for radiologists in training, neonatologists and pediatricians.

This book elaborates on a whole new understanding of digestive endoscopy, the core of which is to treat quite a number of diseases using minimally invasive methods, provides the walls of the digestive tube are free of perforations. Currently, the tunnel technique has been applied in the treatment of digestive early stage carcinomas, esophageal achalasia and submucosal tumors originating from muscularis propria. And this promising technique would surely be more widely used in the future. The main contents of this book include the history of the digestive endoscopic tunnel technique, the practical anatomy involved, operation steps, indications and contraindications, complications and possible future exploration fields. This book is well suited for doctors and surgeons performing digestive endoscopic therapies. Editor Enqiang Linghu is endoscopist and professor at the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Abstract
This is the second, updated and extended edition of a well-received book that offers a comprehensive overview of ultrasonographic imaging of acute and chronic gastrointestinal diseases, including acute abdomen, appendicitis, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel diseases, neoplasms and masses, infections, malabsorption syndromes, and rare conditions. The value of ultrasound in each disorder is clearly explained and illustrated, and limitations identified. Information is also provided on recent technical developments and ultrasound applications that are likely to become of increasing importance, such as functional and 3D ultrasound, contrast agents and intraoperative ultrasound, elastography, and transperineal ultrasound. The authors are all distinguished experts in the topics they address. Ultrasound of the Gastrointestinal Tract will be a helpful guide in daily practice not only for radiologists but also for gastroenterologists, abdominal surgeons, pediatricians, and oncologists.
