Compare Diseases of the Digestive System Posters

How can they be the same but different?

By Kevin RR Williams

PRODUCTS Great news! We now have two posters entitled “Diseases of the Digestive System.” The bad news is that the titles can be confused and the wrong poster may received. Look more than 5 seconds at the preview images and differences will begin to emerge.

This is not a revision; both SKUs are currently within our inventory. If casually ordered along with other gastroenterology posters, the new poster will stick out — literally; it is two inches taller and wider. So don’t try to squeeze it into a prior frame for standard 20x26 inch anatomy posters. It is possible to request at least two Pocket Frames or Flip Frames for the new 22x28 inch posters as a special order.

These are certainly not the only two gastroenterology posters available. Many gastroenterologists and internist display different types for their patients. But “Diseases of the Digestive System” is a very popular title. This warrants highlighting differences between similar posters.

The new poster presents more variations of ulcers esophageal ailments (GERD, esophagitis, Barrett’s) and gastritis (atrophic, erosive, acute, hypertrophic). Cancer of the stomach and colon are depicted separately as well. Counting such variations, amounts to about 21 disorders. In a head-to-head comparison, each poster depicts diseases differently and some things on one poster may not be present on the other. This variance is useful because no two patients present ailments exactly alike. Having a variety of views allows doctors and surgeons to better communicate conditions to patients and offer the best care. Get the latest poster in your choice of finishes now from
