Autopsy - Life In The Trenches With A Forensic Pathologist In Africa (Paperback): Ryan Blumenthal Autopsy - Life In The Trenches With A Forensic Pathologist In Africa (Paperback)
Ryan Blumenthal 8
R260 R175 Discovery Miles 1 750 Save R85 (33%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

As a medical detective of the modern world, forensic pathologist Ryan Blumenthal’s chief goal is to bring perpetrators to justice. He has performed thousands of autopsies, which have helped bring numerous criminals to book. In Autopsy he covers the hard lessons learnt as a rookie pathologist, as well as some of the most unusual cases he’s encountered.

During his career, for example, he has dealt with high-profile deaths, mass disasters, death by lightning and people killed by African wildlife. Blumenthal takes the reader behind the scenes at the mortuary, describing a typical autopsy and the instruments of the trade. He also shares a few trade secrets, like how to establish when a suicide is more likely to be a homicide.

Even though they cannot speak, the dead have a lot to say – and Blumenthal is there to listen.

Pathology of the Maxillofacial Bones - A Guide to Diagnosis (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2015): Pieter Slootweg Pathology of the Maxillofacial Bones - A Guide to Diagnosis (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2015)

This book is divided into 3 main sections: cysts and odontogenic tumors (lesions related to the dentition); fibro-osseous lesions and giant cell lesions, which are unique to the maxillofacial skeleton; and bone lesions, which also occur in other parts of the body. Individual diseases are described with a special emphasis on histomorphological aspects. Some lesions may pose considerable diagnostic problems due to shared microscopical features and the authors' aim is to provide reliable diagnostic guidelines for the surgical pathologist who has to deal with specimens from this area. The majority of the currently available textbooks on head and neck pathology are mainly devoted to soft tissue lesions, paying less attention to the pathology of the diseases that involve the hard tissues. Texts on general skeletal pathology cannot address this gap, as the maxillofacial skeleton differs from the bones elsewhere in the body in several respects. Therefore, the book discusses both bone disorders that are restricted to the head and neck, and diseases that also occur in the extragnathic skeleton.

This book is a comprehensive compendium of current knowledge on inherited and autoimmune blistering diseases that relates advances in our understanding of the pathogenetic mechanisms to management of the individual diseases. The aim is to provide a detailed reference for dermatologists who care for patients with these conditions and a useful "one-stop information shop" for specialists outside of dermatology. The book opens by describing the structure and biology of the epidermis and basement membrane zone and discussing the genes and proteins that are targets for mutations and autoantibodies. The role of the various diagnostic tests is explained, and clinical manifestations of the specific diseases are presented with the aid of many high-quality illustrations. The forms of treatment appropriate in specific conditions are then described in depth, with coverage of dressings, drugs, surgical procedures, gene therapy, and other novel approaches. Helpful algorithms are included both for testing and monitoring and for treatment.

Atlas of Esophagus and Stomach Pathology provides an image-based resource for those studying normal histology of the upper gastrointestinal tract, as well as the microscopic manifestations of developmental abnormalities, toxic insults, infectious diseases, inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, and neoplasia in the esophagus and stomach. Because modern gastrointestinal pathology practice centers on specimens obtained during endoscopic examination, the atlas focuses on biopsy pathology, providing "real-world" microscopic images and ancillary diagnostic studies for most commonly-encountered abnormalities and diseases affecting these two organs. The book is supplemented with endoscopic and special study images. Authored by nationally and internationally recognized pathologists, Atlas of Esophagus and Stomach Pathology is a valuable tool for both pathologists-in-training seeking to make "new acquaintances", and practicing surgical pathologists in need of a quick visual reference in recalling "old friends" in the world of diagnostic gastrointestinal pathology.

"The Atlas of Forensic Pathology, For Police, Forensic Scientists, Attorneys and Death Investigators" is a Major Reference Work that is specifically is designed for non-pathologists who normally interact with forensic pathologists. Chapters 1 through 6 will provide background information regarding medicine, pathology, forensic pathology, death investigation, cause, manner and mechanism of death, death certification, and anatomy and physiology. The next 3 chapters will deal with general topics within forensic pathology, including the forensic autopsy, postmortem changes and time of death, and body identification. Chapters 10 through 20 will detail the major types of deaths encountered by forensic pathologists, including natural deaths, drug/toxin deaths, blunt force injuries, gunshot wounds, sharp force injuries, asphyxia, drowning, electrocution, temperature-related injuries, burns and fires, and infant/childhood deaths. The final chapter includes brief descriptions dealing with various miscellaneous topics, such as in-custody deaths, homicidal deaths related to underlying natural disease, and artifacts in forensic pathology. This atlas differs from competition in that no atlas currently exists that address material for non-pathologists (detectives, forensic entomologists and pathologists), who normally interact with forensic pathologists. The book will present such images that are or interest to not only forensic pathologists but also of interest to odontology, anthropology, crime scene investigators, fingerprints specialists, DNA specialists and entomologists, etc. The competing atlases present images of interest mostly to medical examiners, forensic pathologists and pathologists and consist mostly of wounds, and trauma with some coverage of diseases. The color photographs will come from the collection of over 50,000 slides in the Adelaide Australia collection and some 100,000 slides from the collection compiled by Dr. Prahlow that includes slides from Cook County, Indianapolis, and North Carolina.

This book contains a compilation of high-yield, at-a-glance summaries in quick reference format for various topics that are frequently encountered by pathologists in the daily practice or on the boards. The focus is not organ-based histologic criteria, but rather everything else that goes into pathologic diagnoses but is difficult to keep committed to memory. The emphasis is on immunohistochemistry, special stains, grading systems, molecular markers, tumor syndromes, and helpful clinical references. Also included are morphologic summaries that encompass high-yield material cutting across all organ systems, such as an illustrated guide for microorganisms, tumor differentials, and an illustrated glossary of pathologic descriptors. The book has a unique format in that the information is presented primarily in tables and diagrams accompanied by brief and to-the-point explanatory text. The guiding principle was to boil the information down to the essentials but with just enough commentary to be accessible to a newcomer to pathology and to serve as a quick reference to a practicing pathologist. In the 7 years since its initial publication, there have been considerable advances in surgical pathology, particularly immunohistochemical stains, molecular diagnostics, and histologic grading schemes. In the second edition, the content has been thoroughly updated to incorporate these developments, while retaining the overall scope and concise format of the first edition. In addition, the reader will find summaries for many new topics as well as multiple new cartoon illustrations and diagrams.

While molecular based therapeutic strategies for uterine cancer are not as well developed as for some other organ sites, these are the most common gynecologic malignancies and there have been many important recent developments that are discussed in this volume. Comprehensive chapters address essential information about endometrial carcinoma, uterine mesenchymal tumors, and cervical carcinoma and include the pathogenesis of carcinoma and discuss molecular based classification, biomarkers, therapy, prevention, and hereditary cancers of the uterus. Precision Molecular Pathology of Uterine Cancer is a unique and one of a kind resource for practicing pathologists, pathologists in training and gynecologists.

Atlas of Endocrine Pathology provides a comprehensive compendium of photomicrographs of common and uncommon entities in endocrine pathology. The volume includes histologic features of normal features, reactive conditions, hyperplasia, and tumors. The most helpful diagnostic features are illustrated to provide direction and clues to the diagnosis of endocrine tumors. Furthermore, photomicrographs highlight the most pertinent diagnostic features in problematic diagnoses in endocrine pathology. Authored by a nationally and internationally recognized pathologist, Atlas of Endocrine Pathology is an important learning tool for those becoming familiar with the diverse entities encountered in endocrine pathology and a valuable reference for practicing pathologists faced with challenging diagnoses in endocrine pathology.

The second edition of this book has been extensively revised and updated. There have been numerous scientific advances in the radiology, pathology and risk assessment of benign breast lesions since the publication of the first edition. The first edition concentrated on screen-detected lesions, which has since been rectified; new symptomatic and screen-detected lesions are discussed in the second edition and include: mastitis and breast abscesses, idiopathic granulomatous mastitis, diabetic mastopathy, phyllodes tumours, gynaecomastia and pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia. The chapters on columnar cell lesions and mucocele- like lesions have been extensively updated. Where applicable, genetic analysis of the benign lesions, which is becoming part of personalised medicine in the field of breast cancer, has been included. The book also presents detailed analyses of the main models, such as the Gail Model, used to assess the subsequent risk of breast cancer in individuals. The current trend in the management of all cancers is preventative. Screening mammography detects early curable cancers as well as indeterminate lesions, the latter of which are invariably pathologically benign. The author has collated important benign lesions and, based on peer-reviewed publications, has documented the relative risk of subsequent cancer to allow the patient and the clinician to implement preventative measures where possible. This book will therefore serve as an essential component of multidisciplinary management of patients with symptomatic and screen-detected benign breast lesions.

Dermatopathology is a specialized branch of pathology in which there has been great progress as new techniques have become available to evaluate the pathology of the skin. Many of the advances in our knowledge and understanding of the skin and the diseases that affect it have been made by people with experience of both diagnostic pathology and clinical dermatology. With significant numbers of large textbooks available, there is a need to provide practical clinical information and concise criteria for pathologic diagnosis for pathologists and dermatologists looking for up-to-date diagnostic and management options.
