Vaginitis: Differential Diagnosis and Management

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Sebastian Faro

Vaginitis and its related conditions are the most common reasons women seek care from their gynecologists. However, it is not uncommon for women with complaints that suggest the presence of vaginitis or vaginosis to see their primary care physician or a nurse practitioner. While afflictions involving the vagina might not cause a great deal of discomfort, they can have a significantly negative impact on the patient’s overall well being. This book is a tool for evaluating and managing the patient with vaginitis. After either reading this book or referring to it for specific guidance, the reader should be able to correctly evaluate a patient and develop a management regimen for most of the cases he or she will encounter.

Atlas of Emergency Radiology: Vascular System, Chest, Abdomen and Pelvis, and Reproductive System

By (author): Rita Agarwala

This book presents a vast collection of radiologic images of cases seen in a very busy emergency room. It encompasses common and very unusual pathology and every imaging modality. The book is divided into four parts on pathology of the vascular system, chest, abdomen and pelvis and reproductive organs. Images obtained with the modalities that best depict the abnormality in question are presented, with marking of the salient pathology and explanation of the abnormal imaging features in concise captions. Whenever possible, differential diagnosis is covered using further images and guidance is also provided on selection of additional modalities to confirm the diagnosis. The book will help residents to analyze different diseases and relate pathophysiology to imaging and assist students in appreciating what is abnormal. It will be a useful guide for the busy practicing radiologist and aid clinicians in understanding the complexity of these cases and delivering better focused treatment.p>

Neuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurology, Second Edition

By (author): Orhan E. Arslan

Bridging the gap between the peripheral and central nervous systems, the second edition of Neuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurology enriches understanding of neurological conditions through a conceptual approach to neuronal circuitry. The book retains the basic outline of contents from the first edition, integrating structural organization with pertinent clinical disorders, while reflecting the substantial growth and ever-changing information in neuroscience

After an introduction to the developmental and cellular aspects of the nervous system, the book discusses in depth the morphology and internal organization of the central nervous system. It examines the somatic and autonomic components of the peripheral nervous system, emphasizing nerve entrapments and neuropathies. The author describes various dysfunctions by demonstrating the neuronal interconnectivity between higher and lower autonomic centers and the mediation of visceral reflexes.

The Second Edition incorporates and highlights common and relevant clinical conditions. Topics include:

  • Various forms of cortical dysfunctions, such as seizures, disconnection syndrome, coma, and dementia
  • The role of prefrontal cortex in behavior and attention, introducing the topic of autism
  • Up-to-date information on the auditory, vestibular, gustatory, and limbic systems
  • The neurochemistry of the limbic system, memory and associated disorders, and the structural and neuronal circuitry of the hippocampal gyrus
  • Structural organization and associated pathways of the extrapyramidal system, demonstrating the neurochemical basis of movement disorders

This new edition skillfully integrates over a decade of discovery in neuroscience since the publication of the first edition, and introduces deepened insights into the neuronal synaptic connectivity and the mechanisms that underlie neurologic disorders. The book remains an essential source of information for medical and allied health students, practitioners of neurology, and students of neuroscience.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: The Basics

By (author): Christakis Constantinides

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a rapidly developing field in basic applied science and clinical practice. Research efforts in this area have already been recognized with five Nobel prizes awarded to seven Nobel laureates in the past 70 years. Based on courses taught at The Johns Hopkins University, Magnetic Resonance Imaging: The Basics provides a solid introduction to this powerful technology.

The book begins with a general description of the phenomenon of magnetic resonance and a brief summary of Fourier transformations in two dimensions. It examines the fundamental principles of physics for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signal formation and image construction and provides a detailed explanation of the mathematical formulation of MRI. Numerous image quantitative indices are discussed, including (among others) signal, noise, signal-to-noise, contrast, and resolution.

The second part of the book examines the hardware and electronics of an MRI scanner and the typical measurements and simulations of magnetic fields. It introduces NMR spectroscopy and spectral acquisition and imaging techniques employing various pulse sequences. The final section explores the advanced imaging technique of parallel imaging.

Structured so that each chapter builds on the knowledge gained in the previous one, the book is enriched by numerous worked examples and problem sets with selected solutions, giving readers a firm grasp of the foundations of MRI technology.
