Diagnostic and Therapeutic Neuroradiology: A Case-Based Guide to Good Practice

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Diagnostic and Therapeutic Neuroradiology: A Case-Based Guide to Good Practice
Mar 282018
 

This book presents a wide-ranging series of illustrative clinical cases that cover the main pathologies and areas of interest in diagnostic and therapeutic neuroradiology. The aim is to enable the reader to learn important lessons from real cases that exemplify the caseload and capabilities of a large, modern neuroradiology department. The cases are presented in a quiz format. For each one, the first page documents clinical and imaging findings, followed by questions concerning these findings, differential diagnosis, and other aspects. On the second page, the answers are provided, with concise explanation and discussion. Attention is also drawn to the relevant available literature. Most of the cases derive from the Department of Neuroradiology at the University Hospital Center of Porto (Portugal), which is staffed by a large multidisciplinary team providing cutting-edge services. In addition, some cases from other centers have been included to ensure wider representation of experience. The book will be of particular value for residents and fellows in neuroradiology, radiology, neurology, and neurosurgery.

Monitoring the Nervous System for Anesthesiologists and Other Health Care Professionals , Second Edition

 Anesthesiology, Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Monitoring the Nervous System for Anesthesiologists and Other Health Care Professionals , Second Edition
Mar 272018
 

This widely praised, first-of-its-kind book has been thoroughly updated, expanded, and enriched with extensive new case material, illustrations, and link-outs to multimedia, practice guidelines, and more. Written and edited by outstanding world experts, this was the first and remains the leading single-source volume on intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM). It is aimed at graduate students and trainees, as well as members of the operative team, including anesthesiologists, technologists, neurophysiologists, surgeons, and nurses.
Now commonplace in procedures that place the nervous system at risk, such as orthopedics, neurosurgery, otologic surgery, vascular surgery, and others, effective IOM requires an unusually high degree of coordination among members of the operative team. The purpose of the book is to help students, trainees, and team members acquire a better understanding of one another’s roles and thereby to improve the quality of care and patient safety.
From the reviews of the First Edition:

“A welcome addition to reference works devoted to the expanding field of nervous system monitoring in the intraoperative period… will serve as a useful guide for many different health care professionals and particularly for anesthesiologists involved with this monitoring modality…An excellent reference…[and] a helpful guide both to the novice and to the developing expert in this field.” ‐‐Canadian Journal of Anesthesia

“Impressive… [The book] is well written, indexed, and illustrated…The chapters are all extensively referenced. It is also very good value at the price….I would recommend this book to all residents and especially to all neuroanesthesiologists. It will make a worthwhile addition to their library.” ‐‐Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology

Biomarkers for Preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Biomarkers for Preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease
Mar 272018
 


This volume discusses the importance of imaging, fluid, and genetic biomarkers in detecting the earliest pre-symptomatic stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The chapters in this book are separated into five parts. Part one explores the reasons why we need improved approaches for early detection and diagnosis of AD. Part two describes clinical and research techniques for preclinical AD diagnosis. Part three looks at the current methods in use to diagnose AD and how they can also be used for early detection in healthy older individuals. Parts four and five talk about technological advancements in AD diagnosis and ethical considerations in AD research. In Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory.
Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Biomarkers for Preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease is a valuable resource for individuals interested in the use of biomarker strategies to improve early AD detection. This book will be of great interest to researchers and clinicians from both academia and industry.”

Synesthesia (The MIT Press Essential Knowledge series)

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Synesthesia (The MIT Press Essential Knowledge series)
Mar 242018
 

One in twenty-three people carry the genes for the synesthesia. Not a disorder but a neurological trait – like perfect pitch – synesthesia creates vividly felt cross-sensory couplings. A synesthete might hear a voice and at the same time see it as a color or shape, taste its distinctive flavor, or feel it as a physical touch. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Richard Cytowic, the expert who returned synesthesia to mainstream science after decades of oblivion, offers a concise, accessible primer on this fascinating human experience.

Cytowic explains that synesthesia’s most frequent manifestation is seeing days of the week as colored, followed by sensing letters, numerals, and punctuation marks in different hues even when printed in black. Other manifestations include tasting food in shapes, seeing music in moving colors, and mapping numbers and other sequences spatially. One synesthete declares, “Chocolate smells pink and sparkly”; another invents a dish (chicken, vanilla ice cream, and orange juice concentrate) that tastes intensely blue. Cytowic, who in the 1980s revived scientific interest in synesthesia, sees it now understood as a spectrum, an umbrella term that covers five clusters of outwardly felt couplings that can occur via several pathways. Yet synesthetic or not, each brain uniquely filters what it perceives. Cytowic reminds us that each individual’s perspective on the world is thoroughly subjective.
