The book "Cases in hepatobiilary and pancreatic imaging," authored by Dr. Ankur Arora, has been recently published by Wolters Kluwer Health.

This highly illustrated book utilizes a case-based approach in which 105 cases are divided into two sections describing the various diseases that involve the liver (74 cases) and pancreas (31 cases) in a comprehensive manner. This will contribute to a better understanding of the various conditions as the basics, imaging findings, and pathology are covered. This utilizes the various diagnostic and interventional modalities that are used in a modern clinical setting, including PET scan and endoscopy. The book explains how the correct diagnosis is reached and how errors can be avoided. It has a good layout, with the first page of each case containing a short history, important lab values, and a description of the imaging findings. Five important questions are raised, followed by answers and explanations given on the next page. At the end of each case, a similar case with a different etiology and management is discussed. Adequate space has been provided on either side of each page to write down interesting cases. There is space at the end of each case for more extensive notes. There are grayscale images, color images, and line diagrams of a high quality which are neatly labeled with descriptive legends. The tables are clear and convey important concepts. There is a good list for further reading at the end of each case. A list of cases and an alphabetical index are provided at the end of the book. These are helpful in locating specific cases for revision.

The author has excellent credentials as a radiologist. This is an invaluable book that all radiologists, hepatologists, and surgeons dealing with diseases of the liver and pancreas would benefit from having in their personal collection.
