Functional Neuroimaging in Exercise and Sport Sciences

Regular physical exercise is associated with substantial health benefits. Recent evidence not only holds for cardiovascular effects promoting “physical health”, but also for the central nervous system believed to promote “brain health”. Moderate physical exercise has been found to improve learning, memory, and attentional processing, with recent research indicating that neuroprotective mechanisms and associated plasticity in brain structure and function also benefit. Physical exercise is also known to induce a range of acute or sustained psychophysiological effects, among these mood elevation, stress reduction, anxiolysis, and hypoalgesia. Today, modern functional neuroimaging techniques afford direct measurement of the acute and chronic relation of physical exercise on the human brain, as well as the correlation of the derived physiological in vivo signals with behavioral outcomes recorded during and after exercise. A wide range of imaging techniques have been applied to human exercise research, ranging from electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to positron emission tomography (PET). All of these imaging methods provide distinct information, and they differ considerably in terms of spatial and temporal resolution, availability, cost, and associated risks. However, from a “multimodal imaging” perspective, neuroimaging provides an unprecedented potential to unravel the neurobiology of human exercise, covering a wide spectrum ranging from structural plasticity in gray and white matter, network dynamics, global and regional perfusion, evoked neuronal responses to the quantification of neurotransmitter release. The aim of this book is to provide the current state of the human neuroimaging literature in the emerging field of the neurobiological exercise sciences and to outline future applications and directions of research.

Cardiovascular MRI: 150 Multiple-Choice Questions and Answers

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Cardiovascular MRI: 150 Multiple-Choice Questions and Answers
Nov 212019
 

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) is a rapidly evolving imaging technology and is now increasingly utilized in patient care. Its advantages are noninvasiveness, superb image resolutions, and body tissue characterization. CMR is now an essential part of both cardiology and radiology training and has become part of the examination for Board certification. This book provides a condensed but comprehensive and reader friendly educational tool for cardiology fellows and radiology residents. It contains multiple choice questions similar to board examinations with concise comment and explanation about the correct answer.

Pediatric Heart Sounds

 Cardiovascular, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Heart Sounds
Nov 212019
 

Pediatric Heart Sounds offers in-depth tutorials of specific pediatric heart sounds and a diagnosis of those sounds. A self-assessment option helps the viewer to recognize the audio features of a heart condition as well as how to analyze logically and ‘dissect’ the murmur to improve identification. While the CD contains the multimedia material, the book is designed to provide explanation of the mechanisms involved.

Nuclear Cardiology, The Basics: How to Set Up and Maintain a Laboratory Edition 2

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Nuclear Cardiology, The Basics: How to Set Up and Maintain a Laboratory Edition 2
Nov 212019
 


The purpose of this book is to provide the outline for the “nuts and bolts” establishment and operation of a nuclear cardiology laboratory. In so doing, the authors have attempted to deal with the relevant issues that a laboratory director must address in either setting up the laboratory or maintaining its competitive edge and clinical competence over time. The authors primarily attempted to identify issues related to outpatient imaging facilities. However, where appropriate issues related to inpatients in hospital-based laboratories are also discussed.

Device Therapy in Heart Failure

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Device Therapy in Heart Failure
Nov 212019
 

Heart failure affects over 5 million patients in the United States alone, and is a chronic and debilitating disease. While a number of pharmacologic therapies have shown varying degrees of effectiveness, many recent advances in the treatment of heart failure has focused on device based therapies. In Device Therapy in Heart Failure, William H. Maisel and a panel of authorities on the use and implementation of device based therapies provide a comprehensive overview of the current and developing technologies that are used to treat heart failure. Individual chapters provide an in-depth analysis of devices such as CRT’s and ICD’s, while broader topics such as the pathophysiology of heart failure and its current medical therapies are also discussed. Additional topics include Pacing and Defibrillation for Atrial Arrhythmias, Atrial Fibrillation Ablation, and Percutaneous Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease.

CT Evaluation of Coronary Artery Disease

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on CT Evaluation of Coronary Artery Disease
Nov 212019
 

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in Western countries. In non-fatal cases, they are associated with a decreased quality of life as well as a substantial economic burden to society. Most sudden cardiac events are related to the complications of a non-stenosing marginal plaque. For this reason, the ability to properly identify the atherosclerotic plaque with a rapid, non-invasive technique is of utmost clinical interest in therapeutic planning. Coronary CT angiography produces high-quality images of the coronary arteries, in addition to defining their location and the extent of the atherosclerotic involvement. Proper knowledge of the equipment, adequate preparation of the patient, and accurate evaluation of the images are essential to obtaining a consistent clinical diagnosis in every case. With its clear and concise presentation of CT imaging of the coronary arteries, this volume provides general practitioners and cardiologists with a basic understanding of the technique. For radiologists with no direct experience in cardiac imaging, the book serves as an important source of information on coronary pathophysiology and anatomy.

Cardiovascular Endocrinology:: Shared Pathways and Clinical Crossroads

 Cardiovascular, Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Cardiovascular Endocrinology:: Shared Pathways and Clinical Crossroads
Nov 212019
 

Over the past few decades, cardiovascular disease and diabetes have emerged as major public health problems, both as distinct clinical entities and as comorbid conditions. As a result, the fields of vascular biology and endocrinology are working more closely now than ever before. With chapters by renowned experts, Cardiovascular Endocrinology: Shared Pathways and Clinical Crossroads emphasizes the considerable physiological interrelationships and clinical correlations between the specialties of cardiovascular medicine and endocrinology.
Offering a wealth of information, Cardiovascular Endocrinology: Shared Pathways and Clinical Crossroads provides a range of insights, including a novel view of the hormonal regulation of the vascular system and the disruption of the nitric oxide signaling system. It also addresses the role of fatty acids and cytokines in the development of this problem. Importantly, this unique title also provides a state-of-the-art update on the importance of other hormones such as thyroid hormone and steroids, as well as the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease and controversies surrounding the use of hormone replacement therapy.
In all, Cardiovascular Endocrinology: Shared Pathways and Clinical Crossroads is a first-of-its-kind title that discusses and summarizes important clinical topics in cardiology and endocrinology. It offers clinicians and researchers an important resource for navigating the increasingly interrelated pathways of cardiovascular and endocrinologic disorders. The authors discuss a range of important issues from epidemiology to bench research to translation of this research to clinical practice.
