Om Basic and New Aspects of Gastrointestina
This book is an introduction for students and young doctors at the beginning of their career in diagnostic ultrasonography. It also presents the latest in innovations and techniques in gastrointestinal ultrasonography. The reader will find basic aspects of ultrasonography as well as highly advanced technical and research papers. The first category will be easy to understand for most readers. The second category may require some preparation from the student. All advanced papers represent the frontiers of knowledge.The first few chapters deal with the basic principles of ultrasound and its use in tissue characterization. They are followed by chapters on the use of ultrasound for the characterization of tissue biomechanics and on novel techniques such as 3D ultrasound and hydrosonography. The clinical applications are outlined in the last few chapters of the book.Contents:Basic Technologies in Ultrasound (K Matre & P H Dahl)The Use of Ultrasound in Biomechanics (H Gregersen & K Matre) Ultrasonography of the Liver, Biliary System and Pancreas (O M Pedersen & S Ødegaard)Ultrasonographic Assessment of Esophageal Morphology and Function (S Ødegaard & H Gregersen)Assessment of the Layered Structure of the Gastrointestinal Tract (M B Kimmey & J H Hwang)Simultaneous Recordings of Gastric Motility by Ultrasound, Scintigraphy and Manometry (K Hveem & H Gregersen)Theurapeutic Potential and Consideration of High Intensity Ultrasound in Gastroenterology (R W Martin & J H Hwang)Strain Rate Imaging — A New Tool for Studying the GI Tract (A Heimdal & O H Gilja)Three-Dimensional Ultrasonography in Gastroentrology (O H Gilja & R W Martin)The EchoPac3D Software for 3D Image Analysis (D Martens & O H Gilja)Gastric Emptying and Duodeno-Gastric Reflux Assessed by Duplex Sonography (T Hausken & S Ødegaard)Hydrosonography of the Gastrointestinal Tract (G Folvik & T Hausken)Applications of Acoustic Microscopy in Gastroenterology (T Andersen & H Gregersen)Ultrasonographic Alterations in Functional Dyspepsia (A Berstad & O H Gilja)Endoscopic Ultrasonography in the Diagnosis of Gastrointestinal Diseases with Special Reference to Tumor Staging (S Ødegaard & L B Nesje)Ultrasound in Patients with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (S Tefera & J Hatlebakk)Readership: Practitioners in gastroenterology, internal medicine, surgery and radiology; sonographers and engineers.
