In Diseases of the Liver and Bile Ducts, physicians George Wu and Jonathan Israel have created a concise guide to the diagnosis and treatment of liver disease. Authoritative and practical, their important new book not only spells out the advantages and limitations of the latest diagnostic tests, but also provides numerous algorithms for evaluating patients and treating the liver problems commonly encountered by primary care physicians. Here, too, you will find described the nuances of serological tests for the detection of viral infections and how best to use invasive and noninvasive radiological tests in specific circumstances.

Primary care physicians, medical students, and residents will find it the one definitive and indispensable guide to consult for rapid access to the latest diagnostic information and treatment options.
