Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain and Spine -5th Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain and Spine -5th Edition
Jun 182018
 

For more than 25 years, Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain and Spine has been the leading textbook on imaging diagnosis of brain and spine disorders. The Fifth Edition continues this tradition of excellence with thorough coverage of recent trends and changes in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of CNS diseases, and how those changes relate to MRI findings. It remains a comprehensive, state-of-the-art reference for all who have an interest in neuroradiology – trainees to experts in the field, basic science researchers, and clinicians.

Key Features:

  • Shows how to generate state-of-the-art images and define diagnoses from crucial clinical/pathologic MR imaging correlations for neurologic, neurosurgical, and psychiatric diseases spanning fetal CNS anomalies to disorders of the aging brain.
  • Explains new imaging methodology (hardware- and software-based) in a variety of clinical settings.
  • Discusses emerging, clinically relevant research in well-established neurologic disorders such as stroke and brain tumors, as well as developing clinical applications in non-traditional areas, including neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders and fetal anomalies.
  • Analyzes the detail of clinically important imaging findings; defines the role of MRI findings in the clinical setting of neurologic disease; illustrates the pathologic basis for MRI findings; and explores the use of emerging MRI methods as new contributions to diagnosis and treatment.
  • Emphasizes that the diagnosis of neurologic disease must still be grounded in evidence and based on “the known” – neuropathology, genetics, clinical history, and proven imaging findings – rather than on new techniques often used solely because they are novel.
  • Presents the combined knowledge and expertise of renowned neuroradiologists, innovative MRI physicists, and experienced leading clinical neurospecialists from all over the world.

Thoroughly updated to keep pace with all the advances in this emerging field, the Second Edition of The NeuroICU Book combines the latest clinical perspectives in critical care medicine, neurology, and neurosurgery. This practical, evidence-based text standardizes neurocritical care and takes you through the rationale for those standards. Filled with detailed case studies and enhanced by a question-and-answer format, the book not only builds competency in recognizing acute changes in neurological function, but also addresses all organ insufficiencies and failures, reflecting the real-life challenges in the modern neuro-ICU.

FEATURES

• Strong emphasis on clinical practicality
• Evidence-based approach leverages the scientific and controlled research that supports the key treatment methods outlined in the book
• Practical tools include algorithms, tables, illustrations, photographs, detailed references, and critical take home points
• Balanced coverage of neurologic and critical care and neurosurgery offers outstanding preparation for the neurocritical care board certification exam as well as an indispensable primer for daily clinical work

Concussion: A Clinical Profile Approach to Assessment and Treatment

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Concussion: A Clinical Profile Approach to Assessment and Treatment
Jun 132018
 

This book presents a comprehensive, team-based model for assessment and treatment of concussion. It argues that, contrary to popular belief, a one-size-fits-all approach to concussion treatment does not work, since individuals respond best to targeted interventions based on their specific clinical profile of symptoms and impairment. Moreover, the most commonly prescribed management strategy—rest—can actually prolong recovery for some individuals. This resource is essential reading for those who assess or treat concussion, including medical doctors, psychologists, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and more.

Neurometabolic Hereditary Diseases of Adults

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurometabolic Hereditary Diseases of Adults
Jun 132018
 

This practical book describes only neurometabolic hereditary diseases which have a specific treatment and encourages the general neurologist to think of the most common neurometabolic hereditary diseases, which he might have seen and never considered in the differential diagnosis. Information regarding how to deal with diseases with special therapy is provided (i.e. enzymatic replacement therapy in Fabry disease and Pompe disease), as is information on diseases which are not easily recognized (i.e. Niemann-Pick disease type C), and diseases with clinical features mimicking other common neurodegenrative diseases (i.e. Wilson’s disease). Neurometabolic Hereditary Diseases is written with a clinical focus for adult neurologists working in general hospitals.

Application of Muscle/Nerve Stimulation in Health and Disease

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Application of Muscle/Nerve Stimulation in Health and Disease
Jun 132018
 

The first evidence that electrical changes can cause muscles to contract was p- vided by Galvani (1791). Galvani’s ideas about ‘animal electricity’ were explored during the 19th and 20th century when it was firmly established that ‘electricity’ is one of the most important mechanisms used for communication by the nervous system and muscle. These researches lead to the development of ever more soph- ticated equipment that could either record the electrical changes in nerves and muscles, or elicit functional changes by electrically stimulating these structures. It was indeed the combination of these two methods that elucidated many of the basic principles about the function of the nervous system. Following these exciting findings, it was discovered that electrical stimulation and the functions elicited by it also lead to long-term changes in the properties of nerves and particularly muscles. Recent findings help us to understand the mec- nisms by which activity induced by electrical stimulation can influence mature, fully differentiated cells, in particular muscles, blood vessels and nerves. Electrically elicited activity determines the properties of muscle fibres by activating a sequence of signalling pathways that change the gene expression of the muscle. Thus, elect- cal activity graduated from a simple mechanism that is used to elicit muscle c- traction, to a system that could induce permanent changes in muscles and modify most of its characteristic properties.
