This book is a complete guide to the evaluation and interpretation of liver biopsy specimens for clinicians, providing the latest techniques and advances in the field.
Beginning with an introduction to the structure and function of the `normal' liver, and discussion on situations requiring biopsy, and types of specimen, the following sections describe pathologic variations of liver diseases, ways to identify the changes, and qualitative and quantitative evaluation.
The book covers the full spectrum of disorders and diseases that may occur in the liver and includes chapters dedicated to liver transplant pathology, and paediatric liver disease. Current terminologies, grading and staging systems used in liver biopsy, are discussed in detail.
High definition slides and images enhance learning, and each chapter concludes with `points to remember' highlighting the key features of the topic.
