9781441958518: Atlas of Virtual Colonoscopy

Atlas of Virtual Colonoscopy thoroughly revises and updates Abraham Dachman’s bestselling first edition. Joined in this edition by co-editor Andrea Laghi, Dr. Dachman has expanded the focus of the text to cover fundamental topics of this rapidly evolving technology, including the history of virtual colonoscopy, a review of clinical trial data from throughout the world, and a presentation of clinical background information. Also included are chapters covering patient preparation and tagging, performing and reporting virtual colonoscopy, viewing methods, MR colonography, and computer aided detection. The second part of the text presents an atlas of high-resolution images with detailed explanations of teaching points, covering normal anatomy; sessile, pedunculated, diminutive and flat lesions; masses; stool and diverticula; and common pitfalls. Atlas of Virtual Colonoscopy is a valuable resource for all radiologists and gastroenterologists interested in learning the fundamentals of this exciting technique.

About the Author:

Abraham H. Dachman, MD, is a nationally known specialist in abdominal imaging. He uses X-rays and advanced imaging equipment to visualize the structure and function of abdominal organs. This information is used to help diagnose disease, to assist in surgical planning, and to determine if treatments are effective. Dr. Dachman is known for his expertise in using computed tomography (CT scans) to create 3-D images of abdominal structures. This 3-D technology gives physicians an additional, valuable tool to better visualize tissue without performing an invasive procedure. He is a leading authority on virtual colonoscopy--using noninvasive CT technology to detect polyps and masses in the colon. In addition, he applies 3-D techniques to aid in the detection and staging of pancreatic cancer, and in the evaluation of tumor response to chemotherapy. An active researcher, Dr. Dachman has published several journal articles, book chapters, and books, including the first text on virtual colonoscopy, "The Atlas of Virtual Colonoscopy." In addition, he shares his knowledge about this emerging field through courses for radiologists who want to learn how to read virtual colonoscopy studies. He also has given presentations at dozens of scientific meetings around the United States.

Dr. Andrea Laghi is a renowned professor at the University of Rome, and the author of various journal articles in the field of virtual colonoscopy.

Review:

From the reviews:

"This appears to be the first book on the new subject of virtual colonoscopy ... . This is certainly a good atlas book with several detailed illustrations ... . the topic is properly and clearly covered by well-known experts. ... A more than necessary tool for all who have decided to dedicate a good part of their time to this technique. In any case, a good opportunity to update our knowledge in the field of colorectal cancer." (G. Bianchi Porro, Digestive and Liver Disease, Vol. 36, 2004)

"Atlas of Virtual Colonoscopy is a well-written and well illustrated book that reviews the current status of computed tomographic colonography. ... To our knowledge, it is the most comprehensive book on the subject ... . is well organized and easy to read. ... The images are generally of excellent quality ... . should be considered the definitive text on this subject to date. ... A strength of the book is the abundance of high-quality images. ... an essential text for all radiologists who are interested in this exciting new technology." (Karen M. Horton, Radiology, March, 2004)

"The atlas is divided into two parts. The first includes chapters on technique and its interpretation and second extensive illustrations of colonography. ... Most of the images are of good quality ... . The legends are excellent and informative, providing good continuity within the sections ... . To answer the question ‘will it help?’, yes, I believe it will. Reading and assimilating this atlas will significantly increase one’s understanding of colonography and provide a good basis for interpreting examinations." (Professor Clive Bartram, RAD Magazine, November, 2003)

"This multiauthor book is more than the atlas its title implies. Ably edited by Abraham Dachman, it is also an introduction to virtual colonoscopy ... . The material presented is geared toward the practicing radiologist. Those curious about virtual colonoscopy will find enough information ... and radiologists contemplating starting these studies in their practice are introduced to the finer points involved ... . The editor and contributors have provided a valuable service to the radiology community." (Jovitas Skucas, American Journal of Roentgenology, Vol. 181 (5), 2003)

"Dr. Abraham Dachman’s atlas on the new subject of virtual colonoscopy ... is devoted to all radiologists who are involved in the detection of colorectal neoplasms. ... The editor has succeeded in persuading several distinguished experts to contribute their cases and their insights ... . the editor should be congratulated on this outstanding book, which is a critical and stimulating work for the clinical introduction of this new technique. The illustrations are excellent ... . the book can be recommended to all radiologists and gastroenterologists." (A. K. Dixon and T. J. Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 15 (6), 2005)
