This book aims to provide a complete overview of the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). It has been conceived to be both a detailed guide for clinical practice and an updated reference for all those involved in the evaluation of GISTs imaging. The publication provides comprehensive descriptions of the full range of common imaging and non imaging techniques used in the diagnosis and followup of GISTs. Techniques reviewed include: Conventional radiography· Endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound· Conventional, color-Doppler and contrast-enhanced ultrasound· Computed tomography· Magnetic resonance imaging, and· Contrast-enhanced PET/CT imaging. Both medical and surgical treatment strategies are also fully reviewed. Finally, the book concludes with a chapter that aims to stimulate widespread interest in the formation of new GISTs Units. Written by experts in the field, the book is enriched throughout by numerous black-and-white and color images, making it an invaluable source of information as well as an indispensable guide to interpreting images for radiologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists, oncologists and surgeons.

Elisabetta de Lutio graduated in medicine and specialized in diagnostic imaging at the University of Naples. In her over twenty years of experience, first at A. Cardarelli Hospital (Naples) and now at the G. Pascale Tumor Foundation (Naples), she has been involved in various sectors of diagnostic imaging, including conventional radiology, interventional US, color Doppler, CEUS and MDCT, and become expert in double contrast techniques applied to the musculoskeletal system and the gastrointestinal tract. Her strong interdisciplinary approach has seen her involved in numerous interdepartmental working groups and study protocols, collaborating with colleagues from hematology, surgery, medicine and intensive care in the study of a broad range of oncologic disease, including colorectal cancer, HCC, GIST and breast cancer, as well as studying novel techniques of contrast enhancement. She has also taught in specialization courses in oncology and diagnostic imaging techniques of the gastrointestinal tract.Review:
