This multidisciplinary reference on selecting and performing gastrointestinal (GI) radiological procedures is for clinicians and heath care professionals involved in all stages of caring for patients, from initial consultation through imaging procedures and treatment. Contributors include surgeons, physicians, pathologists, therapists, radiologists, and radiographers. Imaging chapters focus on essential clinical background and on the evidence base for each type of investigation. There is also material on applied anatomy and physiology, image interpretation, medico-legal and ethical issues, pharmacology, and report writing. B&w and color diagnostic images and anatomical drawings appear on nearly every page. The audience for the book includes clinicians, radiographers and radiologic technologists, specialty nurses, and medical students. Nightingale is director of Radiography at the University of Salford, UK. Law is a consultant GI radiographer with the North Bristol NHS Trust, and a visiting research fellow at the University of the West of England, UK.
