D'Onofrio: Imaging and Pathology of Pancreatic Neoplasms
By Mirko D'Onofrio, Paola Capelli, Paola Pederzoli, Claudio Bassi and Alec Megibow
2015, 432 pages, 327 illus, $104 list
Although interest in pancreatic pathology is very high in the radiological and gastroenterological communities, it is still the case that less is known about pathology of the pancreas than about liver pathology, for example. Diagnosis depends on the structure of the pancreatic lesion, which can be directly visualized on US, CT or MR images. This atlas, which encompasses both the imaging and the pathology of pancreatic neoplasms, will therefore be invaluable in enabling radiologists and sonographers to understand the underlying pathology and in allowing pancreatic pathologists to understand the imaging translation.
