Brain Imaging: Case Review Series is a presentation of numerous different cases, covering major diseases radiologists may encounter on a daily basis. Presented in exam format, each case firstly provides the clinical history and radiological images for the reader to make a diagnosis. The review then provides the correct diagnosis and additional commentary on the case. Cases are based upon varying difficulty levels and are followed by key learning points and diagnostic pointers. A comprehensive list of references is also included.
The three-volume set LNCS 6891, 6892 and 6893 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention, MICCAI 2011, held in Toronto, Canada, in September 2011. Based on rigorous peer reviews, the program committee carefully selected 251 revised papers from 819 submissions for presentation in three volumes. The first volume includes 86 papers organized in topical sections on robotics, localization and tracking and visualization, planning and image guidance, physical modeling and simulation, motion modeling and compensation, and segmentation and tracking in biological images.
Effective stroke therapy can be improved through real-time monitoring of the neurological and cardiovascular responses to treatment. This requires crucial knowledge on behalf of both the sonographer and stroke physician to make the best decisions for the patient so as to minimize the damage caused by the original stroke and the risk of further stroke.
"Cerebrovascular Ultrasound in Stroke Prevention and Treatment, Second Edition, " takes a practical approach to the examination of patients, the interpretation of ultrasound studies and the application of cerebrovascular ultrasound in the development of management and treatment studies, assisting neurologists, radiologists, and ultrasonographers in stroke therapy.
This book constitutes the refereed joint proceedings of the International Workshop on Point-of-Care Ultrasound, POCUS 2018, the International Workshop on Bio-Imaging and Visualization for Patient-Customized Simulations, BIVPCS 2017, the International Workshop on Correction of Brainshift with Intra-Operative Ultrasound, CuRIOUS 2018, and the International Workshop on Computational Precision Medicine, CPM 2018, held in conjunction with the 21st International Conference on Medical Imaging and Computer-Assisted Intervention, MICCAI 2018, in Granada, Spain, in September 2018.The 10 full papers presented at POCUS 2018, the 4 full papers presented at BIVPCS 2018, the 8 full papers presented at CuRIOUS 2018, and the 2 full papers presented at CPM 2018 were carefully reviewed and selected. The papers feature research from complementary fields such as ultrasound image systems applications as well as signal and image processing, mechanics, computational vision, mathematics, physics, informatics, computer graphics, bio-medical-practice, psychology and industry. They discuss intra-operative ultrasound-guided brain tumor resection as well as pancreatic cancer survival prediction.
This user-friendly book adopts a multimodality approach in providing a concise overview of both basic and complex issues encountered by pediatric radiologists and pediatricians in their daily practice. The book is written by leading pediatric radiologists and pediatricians from renowned childrens hospitals in Spain, the United Kingdom, and the USA. It focuses particularly on multimodality imaging, covering the full gamut of radiologic diagnostic techniques, including conventional radiography, ultrasound, Doppler ultrasound, CT, and multiple MRI techniques. Chapters are arranged according to organ systems, providing the reader with clinically oriented information. Each chapter is illustrated with high-quality images, as well as graphs, tables, decision flowcharts, and feature cases.
The second edition of this very popular atlas is designed to serve as an up-to-date guide to the diagnostic use of gastrointestinal endoscopy that will meet the daily needs of both novice and advanced endoscopists. The atlas presents an abundance of typical and atypical endoscopic images of common and rare diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colorectum, accompanied by precise clinical descriptions. Normal findings and variants are also amply documented. A large majority of the illustrations in the new edition are superb high-resolution images, reflecting the important advances of recent years. The coverage also includes the role of novel endoscopic technologies such as narrow band imaging, FICE, iScan, and confocal laser endomicroscopy. A further new feature is the inclusion of an interesting quiz at the end of each chapter in order to summarize complex knowledge, enhance understanding, and assist in the internalization of important practical tips. Clinical Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: A Comprehensive Atlas is expected to become the ultimate reference for gastrointestinal endoscopists worldwide.
This book is a learning aid and reference tool that provides all the important information pertaining to radioactive tracers within a single, easy-to-read volume. It introduces a new learning methodology that will help the reader to recall key facts on each tracer, including production, physical and chemical characteristics, study protocols, mechanism of action, distribution, and clearance. In addition, normal and abnormal tracer distributions are graphically reproduced on an outline of the human body using multiple colors. The book will be of value for all radiologists and medical students seeking a reliable source of essential information on radioactive tracers that can be readily consulted during everyday practice and used in preparation for examinations.
This handbook provides hospitals, clinics, and imaging centers, along with their medical and technical directors and hospital administrators, with the necessary information and tools to develop quality initiatives. The specific aims of this book include: 1.Describe quality control as it relates to non-invasive cardiovascular imaging 2.Understand the current standards as published by societal guidelines or accrediting organizations e.g. American College of Radiology (ACR), Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC), The Joint Commission (TJC) or the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). 3.Demonstrate techniques to comply with the routine quality assessment of the equipment utilized in the imaging process. 4.Understand and document the appropriate patient and protocol selection. 5.Optimize appropriate imaging techniques to minimize acquisition and processing artifact. 6.Improve the reporting process and more effectively communicate with referring physicians. 7.Assess the current process of care and document the outcomes to allow for process improvement. 8.Develop protocols for the evaluation of patient and physician satisfaction. 9.Design programs to perform the public reporting of outcomes.
Vascular Neurology, Vascular Neurosurgery and Interventional Neuroradiology are independent fields with dedicated Training Programs. Neuroimaging, and in particular what we call "Neurovascular Imaging" is a unifying factor which can be considered the intersection of these three medical specialties. With this book we aim to cover thoroughly the imaging techniques, potentialities, and present and future applications as applied to all the vascular diseases of the central nervous system from the imaging point of view. This book will comprise eight main sections: (1) The Basics, (2) Arteries of the Head and Neck (3) The basics of Intracranial Arteries (4) Diseases of the vessels (5) Stroke Imaging (6) Veins Imaging (7) Spine Imaging (8) Pediatrics.
This handy workbook covers the essential components of electrocardiography (ECG or EKG) and is useful in helping the reader identify a number of conditions, including arrhythmias, conduction blocks and heart attacks. Basic Electrocardiography reviews the fundamentals of this modality, from recognizing the normal tracing to specifics like identifying bundle branch blocks or ventricular fibrillation. This book will teach students not only the skills to interpret the electrocardiogram but also the language of electrocardiograms. Each chapter introduces basic themes, gives examples from actual patient tracings, and provides self-test electrocardiograms that will reinforce key concepts. Designed for the clerkship student, resident, or even the practicing professional who wants to brush up on EKG particulars, Basic Electrocardiography is a user-friendly guide to one of medicine's most useful tools.
