Imaging tests are integral to the management of patients with suspected lung disease. Staggering advances in radiological technology have been associated with an ever-increasing complexity, and so keeping up with terminology, understanding the significance of basic radiological signs, and appreciating the prognostic impact of findings on imaging tests, is not an easy undertaking for the physician. Until now, there has been a lack of practical, pocket-sized, but authoritative texts dealing principally with the imaging features of pulmonary disease. Covering the essential elements of pulmonary imaging in a concise and digestible format, Thoracic Imaging deals with both the key principles of thoracic imaging, including a separate section on the common radiological terms used to describe pulmonary pathology, and the principal pathological compartments that are affected in specific disease processes. It is packed with over 600 high quality illustrations to highlight the important radiological features in the different diseases, with an emphasis on chest radiography (CXR) and computed tomography (CT) to mirror routine clinical practice.
This atlas fills a gap in the literature by documenting in detail the role of nuclear medicine imaging of infection and inflammation. The pathophysiologic and molecular mechanisms on which radionuclide imaging of infection/inflammation is based are clearly explained, but the prime focus of the book is on the clinical relevance of such procedures. Their impact is demonstrated by a collection of richly illustrated teaching cases that describe the most commonly observed scintigraphic patterns, as well as anatomic variants and technical pitfalls. Due attention is paid to the application of recently developed techniques, including multimodality fusion imaging such as SPECT/CT and PET/CT. Emphasis is placed in particular on the ability of multimodality imaging to increase both the sensitivity and the specificity of radionuclide imaging. This atlas will be an excellent learning tool for residents in nuclear medicine and illuminating for other specialists with an interest in the field.

Since their first application in 1982, Totally Implantable Venous Access Devices (TIVADs) have become increasingly important in the clinical practice, as more intensive chemotherapy and parenteral treatments have come into use. At this time, there is objective evidence that TIVADs are a safe, effective strategy for long-term venous access; they play a significant role throughout the management of the oncology patient, as they are needed in the initial phases for active treatments as well as in the last stages for palliative measures, making possible repeated administration of chemotherapeutic vesicant agents, nutrients, antibiotics, analgesics, and blood products. According to a number of prospective studies, use of TIVADs is associated with a significant complication rate (10% to 25% of all patients). Evidence-based data support that most complications are directly related to inappropriate technique of placement and/or nursing care, sometimes leading to TIVAD loss, significant morbidity, increased duration of hospitalization, and additional medical cost. A group of world-renowned experts - both in the clinical and research fields - contributed to this volume, whose aim is to provide clinicians, nurses and medical students with a multidisciplinary, full update on these devices, as long term central venous access can no be longer considered a routine matter, and serious complications can be maintained at a very low level only if strict adherence to a well-defined protocol of surgical technique and of catheter care is maintained.
