MRI has become an important tool in the management of patients with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, such as rectal cancer and inflammatory bowel diseases. This book, written by distinguished experts in the field, discusses in detail the technical, practical, and clinical aspects of MRI of the gastrointestinal tract. The chapters on technique encompass the most recent developments and address such topics as contrast media, high field strength MRI, and perfusion MRI. Subsequently, individual chapters are devoted to the clinical applications of MRI in the different parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Both established applications and new frontiers are considered, with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations. By combining chapters dedicated to technical aspects and clinically oriented chapters, this book will prove very instructive for the novice while simultaneously offering experienced practitioners further insights into the value of MRI of the gastrointestinal tract.

Review Text

From the reviews:

"This multi-author textbook is a welcome addition in the medial radiology series and is a collection of essays and chapters put together under the distinguished editorship of Dr. Stoker ... . This is an excellent contribution to the literature, with excellent diagrams, and is superbly referenced and up to date. It will be essential reading ... for those with an interest in cross sectional GI imaging. ... The editor should be congratulated on producing excellent contribution to the gastrointestinal imaging literature." (Arpan Banerjee, RAD Magazine, July, 2010)

"The book ... addresses and discusses MRI technical problems ... clinical applications from the oesophagus all the way down to the anus. ... Each chapter is exhaustive, enriched by very impressive and well reproduced images; the reference list is up-to-date including references from 2009. ... will be very much appreciated by the radiologists and surely become a primary reference source not only for them but for all those dealing with bowel diseases: gastroenterologists, surgeons, oncologists." (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 115, September, 2010)

"The text is clearly written and up to date, and the index is comprehensive. ... MRI of the Gastrointestinal Tract is an excellent text for readers seeking to explore a relatively newer frontier in abdominal and pelvic imaging. ... Intestinal MRI will likely be more widely used as concerns over medical radiation increase, and this text will be an excellent reference for readers beginning or expanding a practice in this area." (Jonathan Berlin, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 307 (13), April, 2012)

"This book is to provide a state-of-the-art and comprehensive overview of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the gastrointestinal tract ... . This book is intended for general and gastrointestinal radiologists, residents, and fellows in training, as well as MR technologists. ... The book is well written, clear, and succinct-with 265 figures of excellent quality and 19 tables. ... a complete and up-to-date book on MR imaging of the gastrointestinal tract and fulfills its intended purpose and meets the needs of its target audience." (Silvia Chang, Radiology, Vol. 264 (3), September, 2012)
