3D Automated Breast Volume Sonography: A Practical Guide

By (author): Veronika Gazhonova

This book introduces an exciting new method for breast ultrasound diagnostics – automated whole-breast volume scanning (3D ABVS). Scanning technique is described in detail, with guidance on scanning positions and protocols. Imaging findings are then illustrated and discussed for normal breast variants, the different forms of breast cancer, fibroadenomas, cystic disease, benign and malignant male breast disorders, mastitis, breast implants, and postoperative breast scars. In order to aid appreciation of the benefits of 3D ABVS, comparisons with findings on X-ray mammography and conventional 2D hand-held US are presented. Readers will be especially impressed by the convincing demonstration of the advantages of the new method for diagnosis of breast cancer in women with dense glandular tissue. In enabling readers to learn how to perform and interpret 3D ABVS, this book will be of great value for all who are embarking on its use. It will also serve as a welcome reference for radiologists, oncologists, and ultrasonographers who already have some familiarity with the technique.

On Call Radiology

By (author): Gareth Lewis, Sachin Modi, Hiten Patel, Shahid Hussain

On-Call Radiology presents case discussions on the most common and important clinical emergencies and their corresponding imaging findings encountered on-call. Cases are divided into thoracic, gastrointestinal and genitourinary, neurological and non-traumatic spinal, paediatric, trauma, interventional and vascular imaging. Iatrogenic complications are also discussed.

Each case is presented as a realistic clinical scenario and includes a clinical history and request for imaging. Multi-modality imaging examples and a case discussion on the diagnosis and basic management, with emphasis on important radiological findings, are also presented.

This book combines a case-based discussion format with practical advice on imaging decision making in the acute setting. It also offers guidance on radiology report writing and techniques, with a focus on relevant positive and negative findings to pass on to referring clinicians. On-call Radiology offers invaluable knowledge and practical tips for any on-call radiologist.

Handbook for Clinical Trials of Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions

By (author): Nancy A. Obuchowski, G. Scott Gazelle

Handbook for Clinical Trials of Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions is the first single-source, multi-disciplinary reference, based on the didactic sessions presented at the annual ‘Clinical Trials Methodology Workshop’ for radiologists, radiation oncologists and imaging scientists (sponsored by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA)). It focuses on educating radiologists, radiation oncologists and those involved in imaging research with how to design and conduct clinical trials to evaluate imaging technology and imaging biomarkers.

The internationally renowned contributors take a broad approach, starting with principles of technology assessment, and then move into specific topics covering the clinical trials of therapy and clinical research in imaging guided interventions including radiotherapy. They discuss the use of imaging as a predictor of therapeutic response, screening trial design, and the practicalities of how to run an efficient clinical trial and good working practices. Later chapters provide a comprehensive array of quantitative methods including: an introduction to statistical considerations in study design, biostatistical analysis methods and their role in clinical imaging research, methods for quantitative imaging biomarker studies, and an introduction to cost effectiveness analysis.

Handbook for Clinical Trials of Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions will educate and prepare radiologists at all levels and in all capacities in planning and conducting clinical imaging trials.
