Manual of 3D Echocardiography


This book is a practical guiding manual to explain critical clinical practice in three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography. The use of this technology has been limited to certain pioneer imaging units, but with the advent of lower cost hardware it is spreading and reaching more users that will start to use it often without previous experience or formal academic training. This title provides these readers with a full review of the features, clinical indications and methodological aspects of 3D echo in a practical, “how-to-do-it” way. 3D-echocardiography techniques are becoming more diverse, as they are applied to transthoracic and transesophageal studies, 3D-wall motion tracking, fusion of echocardiographic and fluoroscopy navigation, fusion of wall motion tracking and coronary tomography. All these aspects are described and explained deeply in this book.

The Final FRCA Structured Oral Examination: A Complete Guide (MasterPass)


By (author): Bobby Krishnachetty, Darshinder Sethi

The Final FRCA Structured Oral Examination is the last step before earning the initials FRCA and becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. This comprehensive revision aid has been compiled by two talented authors who have been running a course on this subject for three years. Motivated to make the cases as close as possible to the exam, they have collected a vast database of questions from their trainees and the book reflects a variety of commonly asked themes. In addition, there are contributions from 11 consultants and registrars, who are all experts in their fields. The clear layout and easy to read style prepares students for the examination environment and focuses on the specific areas and responses examiners look for. The style of questions mimics the exam and there are added tutorials for ECG interpretation and radiology which will benefit trainees immensely in their preparation.

Diagnostic Devices with Microfluidics (Devices, Circuits, and Systems)


This book provides a current view of the research and commercial landscape of diagnostics devices, particularly those that utilize microscale technologies, intended for both patient and laboratory use. Common diagnostic devices that are based on microfluidic principles include glucose sensors for diabetic patients and over-the-counter pregnancy tests. Other diagnostic devices are being developed to quickly test a patient for bacterial and viral infections, and other diseases. The chapters, written by experts from around the world, discuss how to fabricate, apply, and market microfluidic diagnostic chips – for lab and at-home use. Most importantly, the book also contains a discussion of topics relevant to the private sector, including patient-focused, market-oriented development of diagnostics devices.

Cluster Randomised Trials, Second Edition (Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series)


By (author): Richard J. Hayes, Lawrence H. Moulton

Cluster Randomised Trials, Second Edition discusses the design, conduct, and analysis of trials that randomise groups of individuals to different treatments. It explores the advantages of cluster randomisation, with special attention given to evaluating the effects of interventions against infectious diseases. Avoiding unnecessary mathematical detail, the book covers basic concepts underlying the use of cluster randomisation, such as direct, indirect, and total effects.

In the time since the publication of the first edition, the use of cluster randomised trials (CRTs) has increased substantially, which is reflected in the updates to this edition. There are greatly expanded sections on randomisation, sample size estimation, and alternative designs, including new material on stepped wedge designs. There is a new section on handling ordinal outcome data, and an appendix with descriptions and/or generating code of the example data sets.

Although the book mainly focuses on medical and public health applications, it shows that the rigorous evidence of intervention effects provided by CRTs has the potential to inform public policy in a wide range of other areas. The book encourages readers to apply the methods to their own trials, reproduce the analyses presented, and explore alternative approaches.

Capture-Recapture Methods for the Social and Medical Sciences (Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics)


Capture-recapture methods have been used in biology and ecology for more than 100 years. However, it is only recently that these methods have become popular in the social and medical sciences to estimate the size of elusive populations such as illegal immigrants, illicit drug users, or people with a drinking problem. Capture-Recapture Methods for the Social and Medical Sciences brings together important developments which allow the application of these methods. It has contributions from more than 40 researchers, and is divided into eight parts, including topics such as ratio regression models, capture-recapture meta-analysis, extensions of single and multiple source models, latent variable models and Bayesian approaches.

The book is suitable for everyone who is interested in applying capture-recapture methods in the social and medical sciences. Furthermore, it is also of interest to those working with capture-recapture methods in biology and ecology, as there are some important developments covered in the book that also apply to these classical application areas.
