difference between Session.item and Session

In Asp.Net, What is the difference between Session.Item("quantity") and Session("quantity")?
In a book that I have; sometimes the code is Session.item('quantity") & sometime it is Session("quantity").

can I use them interchangably?
Please advise.

Thanks.

Yes, it is a shorthand.  Using Session("quantity") is using the default indexer, which is the Item property.
