Advances in technology and human skill have made possible percutaneous catheter-based procedures for a wide spectrum of structural heart disease. A growing number of structural heart diseases that over the past two decades would have required open heart surgery can be safely treated using percutaneous catheter-based procedures.Traditionally, guidance of catheter-based procedures is done using fluoroscopy and two-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (2D TEE). The recent introduction in the clinical practice of RT 3D TEE has overcome most of limitations of 2D TEE. The purpose of this book is to describe the use of this imaging modality in percutaneous interventional procedures underlying its growing role and acceptance among the interventional cardiologists but also emphasizing areas of weakness. Because today interventional cardiology ranges from closure of atrial and ventricular septal defects, to repair of mitral regurgitation and aortic stenosis, from the closure of left atrial appendage and prosthesis dehiscence, to the recent use in electrophysiological procedure, this book targets not only specialists in echocardiography and interventional cardiology but also general cardiologists. General cardiologists will find in any chapter anatomy of the structure treated (i.e. atrial septum, mitral valve...), a description of the morphopathology as seen with RT 3D TEE (degenerative or ischemic mitral regurgitation) the up-to-date indications to the specific percutaneous treatment and typical and unusual clinical cases.

This book guides the reader on a rational pathway from anamnesis and clinical examination (with supporting illustrations), through radiological screening to the appropriate surgical solution. Proposed treatments and treatment results at about one year of follow-up are described in detail with the aid of intra- and postoperative photographs and radiographs. The text is limited to systematic description, and numerous references are included to the earlier parts of the book in order to clearly link the preoperative evaluation to the treatment. It is particular to the surgical correction of foot and ankle pathology that the treatment is nearly always "composite" or complex, in that it entails several separate actions. Thus, surgical correction often has one or more structural components (e.g., osteotomy, arthrodesis) and one or more functional or motor components. It is the aim of the book to explain the effect and rationale of every one of these single "actions".

Although interest in pancreatic pathology is very high in the radiological and gastroenterological communities, it is still the case that less is known about pathology of the pancreas than about liver pathology, for example. Diagnosis depends on the structure of the pancreatic lesion, which can be directly visualized on US, CT or MR images. This atlas, which encompasses both the imaging and the pathology of pancreatic neoplasms, will therefore be invaluable in enabling radiologists and sonographers to understand the underlying pathology and in allowing pancreatic pathologists to understand the imaging translation.
The emphasis in the atlas is very much on the pathological and imaging appearances, with most of the text concentrated at the beginning of the book. A comprehensive overview is provided of typical and atypical presentations and diverse aspects of common and uncommon pancreatic tumors, including ductal adenocarcinoma, intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, metastases and lymphoma. The atlas will greatly assist radiologists, gastroenterologists and surgeons in better comprehending and therefore better approaching the pancreatic pathology and will also be of much interest for pathologists.

Most schools of pharmacy do not cover the area of diagnostic imaging to any appreciable extent in the curriculum, so very few practicing pharmacists have a high level of comfort when dealing with issues relating to diagnostic imaging. Patients undergoing diagnostic imaging procedures may receive a variety of pharmaceutical interventional agents as part of the imaging procedure. Historically these pharmaceutical agents have been overseen by the radiology department rather than the pharmacy department. With recent changes in regulatory oversight of medication management and with increased emphasis by accreditation bodies, pharmacists are finding themselves in need of a better understanding of the policies, procedures, and use of pharmacologic agents in the diagnostic imaging arena. "Diagnostic Imaging for Pharmacists" is the only diagnostic imaging reference written specifically for pharmacists. This easy-to-use resource will provide pharmacists and student pharmacists with a basic understanding of diagnostic imaging and the pharmaceuticals used as a part of the imaging process. It focuses on the pharmaceutical agents used in diagnostic imaging procedures. It includes basic information on each type of imaging modality - X-ray, MRI, Ultrasound, and Nuclear Medicine. It covers regulatory oversight in the diagnostic imaging area. It offers a basic review of ionizing radiation, and review of radiation safety procedures.
