The available textbooks on endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) typically focus on technique and interpretation of commonly observed images and scenarios and are aimed primarily at trainees. However, independent practitioners of EUS are often challenged by unusual cases which they are expected to handle competently despite the absence of authoritative guidance. The Diagnostic Endosonography aims to fill this gap by presenting carefully selected cases that will expand the practitioner’s knowledge base and cover important clinical challenges. The case material is organized principally according to anatomic site. Approximately 170 case reports are included, each of which is accompanied by an average of three to five high-quality EUS images; in addition, CT and PET scans are shown when appropriate. For each case, the case description is followed by helpful “teaching points” as well as up-to-date literature references and suggestions for future research.

Diagnostic Endosonography - A Case Based Approach was motivated by our experience teaching gastroenterology fellows and talking to experienced colleagues. Many fellows who have access to excellent introductory textbooks still feel only partially prepared to handle the more complex and unusual cases that they will sooner or later encounter in independent practice.
We believe that using case studies, an approach not previously employed for EUS texts, engages the reader and leads to better assimilation, greater learning gains, and better retention. Throughout the book the cases connect the EUS findings with other imaging studies, clinical manifestations, management, and current literature. The book is organized by organ systems to provide a comprehensive overview of diagnostic endosonography, including the use of fine-needle aspiration biopsy, the cornerstone of diagnosis with EUS.
