Pain is a fascinating yet frightening subject, from wherever and however it is viewed. It has emotional features and medical features. Understanding pain and its cause is both interesting and challenging. Pain in itself is not life threatening, but it decreases the quality of life. The book Aage R. Moller: “Pain, Its Anatomy and Physiology” is now in its second edition. This revised edition includes recent developments especially regarding chronic neuropathic pain and its treatment. It discusses many aspects of pain such as how pain can affect people, the cause of many forms of pain and their treatment including some new little known treatments. It also discusses the efficacy of conventional treatments and their side effects. The effect of inflammation on many forms of pain including low back pain is discussed. Today’s treatment is often inadequate, especially for pain that lasts a long time. The reason can be that there is no known adequate treatment but often the reason is that the available treatments are not used or not used correctly. The book addresses many general questions about pain and it is written in common language and knowledge about neuroscience is not necessary for understanding the matters covered by this book. I therefore believe that many people who have pain will find the book of value in understanding their pain. I use the book as the textbook for teaching both graduate and undergraduate courses in the biology of pain in the Neuroscience Program of The University of Texas at Dallas School of Behavioral Neuroscience. Many of my undergraduate students have little knowledge of neuroscience.

ANATOMY: An encyclopedic reference to the language of anatomy and neuroanatomy. It provides the fascinating origin of terms

 Anatomy  Comments Off on ANATOMY: An encyclopedic reference to the language of anatomy and neuroanatomy. It provides the fascinating origin of terms

This is not just another anatomy book. It is unique in design, purpose and scope. It defines the words of anatomy including their origin, by whom and from where. The use of these words by anatomists and their discoveries are given in the first part of the book. These are a very diverse group of individuals and they are described in detail in the second part of the book, the Gallery of Biographies, which includes tales of their lives and careers. One was a member of the House of Lords of Britain, another became a Roman Catholic Bishop. The first “clinical trial” was conducted by another anatomist to demonstrate the use of the condom in the prevention of social diseases. The third section of the book is concerned with the nervous system including the definition and origin of named structures in the central and peripheral nervous systems. In addition, diseases of the nervous system are discussed completely and in detail. The effect is an enhancement of the learning process in neuroanatomy fraught with seemingly endless disconnected words. The sources of these words are included in the text and references. The content of the book was conceived by two emeritus professors, Drs. Ronald A. Bergman and Adel K. Afifi, with a combined 100 years experience teaching gross anatomy and neuroanatomy, with the intention of facilitating the understanding of the “mysterious” terminology used in anatomy, biology and medicine and to be able to incorporate this understanding into their career choices. The authors believe that the book provides students with an easy entry to a vast amount of anatomical detail making the learning process as pleasant as possible. No one can remember the enormous number of anatomical terms and, as with all anatomy text books, the authors recommend that this “vade mecum” not be read like a novel, but rather used as one does with an encyclopedia. The user of this book does not need to know Greek and Latin to quickly learn this “new” language. Many word origins are rather simple in concept. One discovers that many terms came from “common use” in their time, e.g., there are three bones in each finger, the are termed “phalanges” because they reminded their discoverer of a “line of battle”, esp. Macedonian infantry formations or “phalanxes”. References and all sources that provide the book content invite those especially interested to peruse these outstanding resources for additional details.

CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy, Second Edition

 Anatomy, Radiology  Comments Off on CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy, Second Edition
Feb 212018
 

Since it was originally published in 2010, CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy has been an invaluable aid to a wide variety of radiotherapy professionals, both qualified and in training. This second edition has many welcome additions and updates, while retaining its original user-friendly format.

All essential structures relevant to radiotherapy are described and depicted on 3D images generated from radiotherapy planning systems. System-based labelled CT images, taken in relevant imaging planes and patient positions, build up understanding of relational anatomy and CT interpretation; and all images are accompanied by comprehensive commentary. This simplified approach enables the reader to gain image interpretation skills quickly and easily.

The second edition of CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy supports radiotherapy staff as they play a more active part in structure outlining and increasingly routine cone-beam CT verification. The text has been updated throughout, to reflect recent changes in technology and practice, and the reader is further supported with additional self-test questions and more interesting pathology examples. There is new information on safety in CT, use of contrast and minimising the impact of artefacts; and the dedicated lymph node sections have been refreshed, with detailed delineation of common nodal regions. New dedicated ‘Structure Focus’ sections concentrate on anatomical structures that are challenging yet clinically relevant for trial protocols or included in updated guidelines, including the penile bulb, coronary arteries, brachial plexus and complex supra-sellar regions.

The unique combination of the authors’ knowledge of both current and emerging radiotherapy requirements and CT image interpretation has again produced an accessible and highly relevant text that provides sufficient detail to satisfy the most inquisitive of students and support radiotherapy practice for a wide range of professionals.
