Designed as an easy-to-use and comprehensive reference for the practicing pathologist, Diagnostic Pathology: Hepatobiliary and Pancreas is the next highly anticipated title in the Diagnostic Pathology series offered by Amirsys. As readers have come to expect from this series, Diagnostic Pathology: Hepatobiliary and Pancreas is filled with superior medical images, including gross photographs, photomicrographs, and detailed medical illustrations. As with our other Diagnostic Pathology titles, chapters include definitions, terminology, etiologies and pathogenesis, demographics, clinical presentations, therapy, prognoses, radiologic imaging, pathology, and differential diagnoses. The pathologic features are extensively detailed with descriptions of the macroscopic features, microscopic findings, cytopathology (as indicated), and as needed, ancillary studies. The latter include histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics, molecular diagnostics and ultrastructural findings. There are also a variety of quick-reference test data tables, as well as helpful introductory chapters, annotated and illustrated staging templates, and chapters on specimen examination handling. This handsome volume is a veritable one-stop shop for your hepatic, biliary, and pancreatic pathology reference needs.

Eye Pathology: An Atlas and Text is a basic introduction to eye pathology that can be read and mastered during an ophthalmic pathology rotation. In addition, it will serve as a well-illustrated resource for residents who are studying for the OKAP examinations or Board certification in ophthalmology. Completely written and illustrated by Dr. Eagle, this single-author text is primarily designed for ophthalmology residents and the comprehensive ophthalmologist not looking for a comprehensive text on the subject.
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is the leading cause of disability globally in both developed and developing nations. The staggering economic costs attributable to MDD are largely a consequence of impairment in role function. Evidence indicates that disturbance in the domain of cognitive function in individuals with MDD is the principle determinant of health outcome. This is the first book to comprehensively explore the domain of cognition in MDD. The literature describing cognitive dysfunction is reviewed with particular focus on clinical determinants, pathophysiology and causative factors. The patient subpopulations most susceptible are defined. A summary of contemporary assessment tools for research and clinical purposes is provided. Multimodality treatments and prevention strategies are described. This book is an invaluable resource for psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and other members of the mental health team, as well as for policy makers, vocation rehabilitation experts, disability providers and other stakeholders interested in improving health outcomes in MDD.
This volume provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of myeloid neoplasms. The book presents updated information on epidemiology, clinical presentation, morphologic findings, molecular genomic abnormalities, pathogenesis, and target therapies. The text helps to guide accurate diagnosis, the administration of appropriate ancillary molecular tests, patient management, and investigative efforts. The book also includes over 200 illustrations, photographs, and tables. Written by experts in the field, Precision Molecular Pathology of Myeloid Neoplasms serves as a valuable resource for pathologists, hematologists/oncologists, fellows, and researchers in understanding the molecular pathology of myeloid neoplasms.
G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are believed to be the largest family of membrane proteins involved in signal transduction and cellular responses. They dimerize (form a pair of macromolecules) with a wide variety of other receptors. The proposed book will provide a comprehensive overview of GPCR dimers, starting with a historical perspective and including, basic information about the different dimers, how they synthesize, their signaling properties, and the many diverse physiological processes in which they are involved. In addition to presenting information about healthy GPCR dimer activity, the book will also include a section on their pathology and therapeutic potentials.
Cerebral Angiography is a comprehensive and well-illustrated guide to the diagnostic use of cerebral angiography. The first part of the book depicts in detail the normal appearance of the cerebral vessels on angiographic studies. Sound knowledge of this normal vascular anatomy and clinical function is vital for correct interpretation of the clinical significance of the pathological processes addressed in the second part of the book. The latter include vascular abnormalities, including angiomas, fistulas, and aneurysms; atherosclerotic and non-atherosclerotic stenosis and occlusion of the cerebral vessels; and venous thrombosis. In each case, both typical and atypical appearances are presented. While the emphasis throughout is on the diagnostic value of cerebral angiography, a number of examples of endovascular treatment are also included to highlight the evolving possibilities of therapy and the role of cerebral angiography in treatment selection.
