Designed as an easy-to-use and comprehensive reference for the practicing pathologist, Diagnostic Pathology: Hepatobiliary and Pancreas is the next highly anticipated title in the Diagnostic Pathology series offered by Amirsys. As readers have come to expect from this series, Diagnostic Pathology: Hepatobiliary and Pancreas is filled with superior medical images, including gross photographs, photomicrographs, and detailed medical illustrations. As with our other Diagnostic Pathology titles, chapters include definitions, terminology, etiologies and pathogenesis, demographics, clinical presentations, therapy, prognoses, radiologic imaging, pathology, and differential diagnoses. The pathologic features are extensively detailed with descriptions of the macroscopic features, microscopic findings, cytopathology (as indicated), and as needed, ancillary studies. The latter include histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics, molecular diagnostics and ultrastructural findings. There are also a variety of quick-reference test data tables, as well as helpful introductory chapters, annotated and illustrated staging templates, and chapters on specimen examination handling. This handsome volume is a veritable one-stop shop for your hepatic, biliary, and pancreatic pathology reference needs.
