ABSTRACT

This book represents a composite of the articles, dealing with radionuclide studies of the gastrointestinal tract, that appeared in the April and July 1972 issues of Seminars in Nuclear Medicine. It contains 18 contributions by various authors on clinical aspects as well as basic physiologic concepts. The first eight of these concern hepatic evaluation including hepatic bloodflow, scanning techniques for mass lesions, differential diagnosis of functional disorders, and the use of radiocopper.

Subsequent articles deal with detection of pancreatic disease and malabsorption of vitamin B12, abnormal gastrointestinal iron transport, protein-losing enteropathy, determination of gastrointestinal blood loss, and the clinical usefulness of splenic and salivary gland scans. These sections are variable in their approach; some emphasize studies performed by the authors; others involve practical considerations, the value and limitations of various techniques, and review of the literature.

This text is valuable because it collates current information and controversial viewpoints
