Morphodynamic Imaging in Achalasia – Original PDF
This book embarks on a journey never taken before, approaching the imaging of the disease of achalasia with new pathophysiological assumptions in mind, coming from the Chicago Classification of Manometric diagnosis. Using state-of-the-art, modern x-ray technology, the authors have developed a schematic and simple approach to detection, diagnosis, and patient stadiation and prognostic stratification, for radiologists, clinicians, and students.
1. Serves as a useful guide to structured and comprehensive reporting of barium swallows, both in achalasia and other oesophageal motility disorders.
2. Allows radiologists, both specialists, and trainees, to comprehensively understand achalasia from anatomic, pathophysiologic, therapeutic points of view, allowing for exact comprehension, detection, and reporting of the radiologic hallmarks of the disease.
3. Empowers readers to diagnose and define the exact achalasia subtype in each patient, due to the specifically developed FBF score
