"This concise book describes different types of pancreatic masses and their diagnostic workup and treatment and includes some useful tables and diagnostic algorithms. ... The intended audience is practicing clinicians, but with its short chapters on a variety of topics, this is also a very good book for students and residents. ... It is very useful for day-to-day practice and for students or residents as a study resource." (Carlos H. F. Chan, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
