Radiodiagnosis of Endophytic Gastric Cancer


Based on the study of more than 2000 cases of endophytic cancer, among which early carcinoma was 25%, the authors propose an original approach to the detection of such cancers. Their concept is based on a study of the morphology substrate of early endophytic infiltrative carcinomas. Maximum radiology and endoscopic imaging of carcinomatous infiltration in the stomach wall is presented as a factor of paramount importance in the estimation of pathomorphologic changes.
"The book is based on the study of more than two thousand cases of gastric cancer and is the result of close collaboration of radiologists, endoscopists, surgeons and pathologists...beautifully illustrated...provides a wealth of information ...." - Radiology
