This study of the duodenum, presented in atlas form, includes all of the diagnostic problems, frequent and rare, which the clinical roentgenologist may encounter in his daily practice. The roentgenograms shown are supplemented by self-explanatory diagrams, ample text and, in some instances, case histories. Adequate attention is given variations of the normal duodenal picture, anomalies, changes engendered by extraduodenal pathologic conditions, changes resulting from pressure of neighboring structures, diverticula, stenosis, duodenitis, tumor, ulcer and postoperative conditions of the duodenum.
The occurrence of definite clinical manifestations attributable to diverticula is contrary to general experience. Functional conditions, although they are discussed in relation to other topics, are not given a separate chapter, which their importance, in my opinion, justifies.
This work should be of definite practical value to roentgenologists.
