Blood Science: Principles and Pathology 1st Edition

 Pathology  Comments Off on Blood Science: Principles and Pathology 1st Edition
Nov 182021

Blood Science is a relatively new discipline which merges biochemistry, haematology, immunology, transfusion science and genetics. This bringing together of traditional disciplines requires a corresponding change in education and training for healthcare scientists and Blood Science: Principles and Pathology is written in response to this emerging need.

An introduction to the subject and an overview of the techniques used in blood science are followed by a series of chapters based on groups of analytes investigated in blood – red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, followed by the constituents of plasma, including waste products, electrolytes, glucose, lipids, enzymes, hormones, nutrients, drugs, poisons and others.

Each chapter is supported by learning objectives, summaries and further information, and a focus is given to chapter specific case studies with interpretation to demonstrate how laboratory data in conjunction with clinical details is utilised when investigating patients with actual or suspected disease. Finally, a separate chapter offers more detailed case reports that integrate the different aspects of blood science.

Undergraduate students taking blood science modules as part of their BSc programmes in Biomedical and Healthcare Sciences will appreciate the level of integration between clinical biochemistry and haematology. In addition, this book will provide suitable initial reading for those students embarking on blood science modules on MSc programmes and will be of value to new graduates entering the profession and starting their career in blood science departments by supplementing practice-based training with the required theoretical underpinning.

This book is approved by the Institute of Biomedical Science and written by its expert writers, many of whom work on the Institute’s advisory panels.

Diagnostic Pathology: Familial Cancer Syndromes 1st Edition

 Oncology, Pathology  Comments Off on Diagnostic Pathology: Familial Cancer Syndromes 1st Edition
Oct 252021

Diagnostic Pathology: Familial Cancer Syndromes features a comprehensive review of the top 56 inherited tumor syndromes associated with neoplasms, which every surgical pathologists diagnoses in their daily sign-out practice. With over 175 chapters and written by well-known experts in the field, this book seeks to help surgical pathologists, clinicians, fellows, and residents understand the critical differences in diagnosing familial tumors and differentiating these from the sporadic counterpart. Besides the well-described pathology of these syndromes, the clinical implications on diagnosing these syndromes are also presented in detail. This book will guide pathologists and clinicians to master diagnostic criteria when diagnosing tumors associated with inherited tumor syndromes.

The chapters are organized in 3 parts:

The 1st part, “Overview of Syndromes” has the detailed description of the major syndromes within 56 chapters, genes involved, associated tumors, and diagnostic criteria. This part also contains tables that may be helpful in better classifying the diseases and the associated syndromes. Each syndrome described includes all benign and malignant tumors occurring in that specific syndrome including the differential diagnosis.

The 2nd part, “Syndromes By Specific Diagnosis”, discusses in detail, the diseases occurring within the syndromes described in part 1. The diagnoses are conveniently grouped according to the gland/organ/tissue involved.

Distinct diseases are described by highlighting the characteristics of the tumors according to the different syndromes in which they occur. The book describes in detail some of the distinct characteristics of tumors found in inherited tumor syndromes that distinguishes these tumors from tumors in a sporadic setting. Each diagnosis includes definitions, terminology, etiology, pathogenesis, demographics, clinical presentations, therapy, prognosis, gross and microscopic pathology, differential diagnoses, and special studies including immunohistochemistry and molecular/genetics. Every diagnosis is discussed in concise, bulleted text that highlights the most diagnostically significant factors.

The 3rd part is “Syndromes by Organ Location”. This is also divided by organ/subspecialty and distributed among 40 chapters. This part has tables with “easy-to-find” possible syndromes by organ, with numerous tables including the differential diagnosis.

Augmenting the text discussion are numerous gorgeous medical images, including clinical images, gross pathology, histology, and a wide range of special and immunohistochemical stains. Each image is carefully annotated to highlight the most diagnostically significant factors.

Finally, this book features the classic benefits of all Amirsys® titles, including time-saving bulleted text, key facts in each chapter, stunning annotated images, extensive index, and Amirsys eBook Advantage™, an online version of the print book with larger images and fully searchable text.
