About this book


This book provides a comprehensive review of the imaging of cystic and rare tumors of the pancreas. It is divided into five sections on the following topics: cystic tumors, intraductal cystic tumors, endocrine tumors, rare tumors, and secondary tumors. In each section, individual chapters document the pathology, clinical manifestations, and imaging of these tumors. Therapeutic management is also discussed. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the role of state-of-the-art techniques, and the text is complemented by numerous high-quality illustrations. All of the authors are highly respected authorities in the field, with vast experience in all aspects of pancreatic disease.
