Описание: This book provides a comprehensive account of imaging of the small intestine. It is designed to represent both an in-depth guide to clinical practice and an up-to-date reference source for those engaged in imaging evaluation of the small intestine. Detailed descriptions and critical assessments are given of all the commonly employed techniques, including ultrasonography, computed tomography, nuclear medicine, diagnostic and therapeutic angiography, and barium radiology. Full consideration is also given to the substantial progress achieved during recent years by means of techniques such as enteroscopy and MR-enteroclysis. Authoritative reviews, written by leading experts in the field, are provided on all of the important clinical entities and conditions. The book is richly illustrated with high-resolution images, many of them in color and will serve as a unique source of information and aid for radiologists, gastroenterologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, pathologists and oncologists.
Описание: Imaging studies are playing an increasingly role in the evaluation of endocrine diseases; accordingly, familiarity with the specific indications for the various modalities, and with the characteristic findings, is essential. This multi-author work, which is intended for both radiologists and endocrinologists, considers the role of all the recent imaging techniques, including ultrasound (particular color Doppler), computed tomography, MRI, and scintigraphy. Following an extensive introduction on the pituitary, subsequent chapters discuss in detail the normal anatomy and pathology of the female and male reproductive systems. Remaining chapters provide state-of-the-art data on the thyroid, parathyroids, pancreatic endocrine tumors, adrenal glands, hormonal tumors (carcinoids and MEN), and imaging of the complications of hormone therapy.
Описание: The Architecture of Imaging is the leading guide to the design of state-of-the-art medical imaging facilities for health care, including radiology, MRI, CT scan, and PET scan. * Explains the technical requirements of radiological equipment and procedures in nonmedical language that architects can understand.
Описание: This book comprehensively reviews imaging of the pediatric gastrointestinal tract and accessory digestive organs from a practical approach. Starting with a brief discussion on techniques this is followed by a couple of comprehensive chapters covering emergency/acute pediatric abdominal imaging. A series of traditional anatomically structured chapters on the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon and accessory organs then follow. Each chapter carefully considers the role of the currently available imaging techniques and discusses and illustrates diagnostic dilemmas. The closing chapter focuses on pediatric interventional procedures performed with imaging guidance. Since the first edition, the text has been fully updated and new illustrations included. Against the background of rapid advances in imaging technology and the distinctive aspects of gastrointestinal imaging in children and infants, this volume will serve as an essential reference for general and pediatric radiologists as well as for radiologists in training, neonatologists and pediatricians.
Описание: This comprehensive, up-to-date and extensively illustrated volume offers a multimodality approach to gastrointestinal imaging in children and infants. The role of each of the currently available imaging techniques is considered carefully, and diagnostic dilemmas are discussed and illustrated. After an initial chapter that addresses pediatric gastrointestinal imaging in the emergency setting, detailed individual chapters are devoted to the esophagus, stomach and duodenum, accessory organs of digestion, small bowel and colon. A closing chapter focuses on pediatric interventional procedures performed with imaging guidance. Against the background of rapid recent advances in imaging technology and the distinctive aspects of gastrointestinal imaging in children and infants, this volume will serve as an essential reference work for all who are engaged in the field.
Описание: This second, revised edition of вЂњRadiological Imaging of the Neonatal ChestвЂќ provides a comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of the subject. It is written primarily from the point of view of the paediatric radiologist but will be of particular interest to all antenatal ultrasonographers, neonatologists, paediatric cardiologists, paediatricians and paediatric surgeons. It includes an update on clinical management and appraises the advantages of the various techniques available to image the newborn chest. There is particular emphasis on the impact of recent therapeutic advances on imaging findings. Dedicated chapters are included on antenatal and postnatal imaging of chest malformations, upper airway problems, infection and congenital heart disease, with special emphasis on the current role of magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and interventional therapy. This well-illustrated book contains important information for all those involved in caring for the neonate.

Описание: Many comprehensive text books have been written about the common hematologic malignancies. However, every practicing hematologist/oncologist or primary care physician intermittently encounters patients with uncommon or rare hematologic malignancies. Information concerning these diseases, and particularly regarding their management, is extremely difficult to find. Physicians will commonly spend a substantial period of time searching the medical literature for help or will call a colleague who may have greater expertise in the area.Introduction.- Polycythemia vera.- Myelofibrosis.- Essential thrombocythemia.- Chronic eosinophilic leukemia/hypereosinophilic syndrome.- Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.- 5q- syndrome.- Rare acute leukemias (including acute erythroid, megakaryoblastic and basophilic leukemia).- Hairy cell leukemia.- Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma.- Rare B-cell lymphomas - (mediastinal, intravascular and primary effusion lymphomas).- Lymphomatoid granulomatosis.- Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorders.- CastlemanвЂ™s disease.- Rare T-cell lymphomas (enteropathy-type, hepatosplenic and subcutaneous panniculitis-like).- CD30+ diseases вЂ“ (Anaplastic large cell lymphoma and lymphomatoid papulosis).- Nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin Lymphoma.- Langerhans cell histiocytosis.- Systemic mastocytosis.- Index
Описание: The diagnosis and monitoring of hematological malignancies is complex and requires a systematic approach. Morphology, cell phenotyping, cytogenetics and molecular genetics are essential, and the results must be integrated. Diagnostic Techniques in Hematological Malignancies details the principles and applications of each of these test types in the diagnosis of hematological malignancies in blood and bone marrow. The first section describes the test modalities – including methodological principles, data interpretation and limitations – and is illustrated by clinical examples. The second section focuses on the clinical entities, detailing the most appropriate tests for diagnosis, staging and monitoring of different hematological malignancies and includes test utilization to identify prognostic markers and potential therapeutic targets. With contributions from multiple international experts, this illustrated book is an essential resource for qualified and trainee hematologists, oncologists, and pathologists. It's a practical and useful guide, providing a rational and structured approach to the laboratory assessment of hematological malignancies.
Описание: In this book, the authors and editor draw on their extensive expertise to provide a roadmap for hematologists to efficiently manage the complex infections within their patients. There are also extensive tables to allow for quick access to information.
Описание: There are many haematological complications associated with obstetrics, pregnancy and gynaecology, and unfortunately, they often lead to significant morbidity or mortality for both mother and child.
