"The third edition of “Endosonography”, updated three years after its last edition reflects the dynamic field of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), which constantly evolves, responding to the needs of beginners (as learning EUS represents a challenge) and of practicing endosonographers.

The updated information provided in this book based on experts’ knowledge and evidence-based medicine gives an excellent tool for learning EUS and for improving EUS guided therapeutic procedures."
