By (author): Rita Agarwala

This book presents a vast collection of radiologic images of cases seen in a very busy emergency room. It encompasses common and very unusual pathology and every imaging modality. The book is divided into four parts on pathology of the vascular system, chest, abdomen and pelvis and reproductive organs. Images obtained with the modalities that best depict the abnormality in question are presented, with marking of the salient pathology and explanation of the abnormal imaging features in concise captions. Whenever possible, differential diagnosis is covered using further images and guidance is also provided on selection of additional modalities to confirm the diagnosis. The book will help residents to analyze different diseases and relate pathophysiology to imaging and assist students in appreciating what is abnormal. It will be a useful guide for the busy practicing radiologist and aid clinicians in understanding the complexity of these cases and delivering better focused treatment.p>

Introductory Medical Imaging (Synthesis Lectures on Biomedical Engineering)


By (author): A. A. Bharath

This book provides an introduction to the principles of several of the more widely used methods in medical imaging. Intended for engineering students, it provides a final-year undergraduate- or graduate-level introduction to several imaging modalities, including MRI, ultrasound, and X-Ray CT. The emphasis of the text is on mathematical models for imaging and image reconstruction physics. Emphasis is also given to sources of imaging artefacts. Such topics are usually not addressed across the different imaging modalities in one book, and this is a notable strength of the treatment given here. Table of Contents: Introduction / Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging / X-Ray CT / Ultrasonics / Pulse-Echo Ultrasonic Imaging / Doppler Velocimetry / An Introduction to MRI

Increasing the Therapeutic Ratio of Radiotherapy (Cancer Drug Discovery and Development)


Current cancer therapies are focused on three general strategies: modifying intrinsic radiosensitivity via molecular targeting, manipulating microenvironmental factors to enhance tumor susceptibility to radiation, and improving delivery of radiation to critical tumor locations while sparing normal tissues. The goal of this volume is to describe a number of promising approaches corresponding to each strategy.
In general, research in radiation oncology tends to be siloed into fundamental biology, physics or treatment delivery. The strategies for improving therapeutic ratio encompassed in this book will involve each of these components of radiation oncology. Thus, they will illustrate the variety of disparate approaches available for potentially improving the efficacy of radiotherapy, which may then stimulate discussion across disciplines and foster further translational investigations.
Although a goal of each chapter will be to highlight advances within an approach, of equal importance will be the delineation of barriers to successful clinical application and how to overcome or minimize such impediments. Along these lines, because therapeutic ratio incorporates both tumor and normal tissue radio response, a point of emphasis will be the mechanistic rationale for selectively modifying tumor (sensitization) or normal cells (protection).
Finally, whereas the literature is replete with studies describing potential targets/strategies for increasing the therapeutic ratio for radiotherapy, this book will focus on those supported by in vivo data consistent with impending translational application along with those that are already being evaluated in the clinic.

Imaging Non-traumatic Abdominal Emergencies in Pediatric Patients


This book provides up-to-date, comprehensive, and accurate information on the diagnostic imaging of nontraumatic abdominal emergencies in pediatric patients. All of the most common neonatal and pediatric emergencies are covered, with separate discussion of diseases that occur more commonly in newborns and those typically encountered later in childhood. For each condition, the main signs observed using the various imaging techniques – X-ray, Ultrasonography, Computed Tomography, and Magnetic Resonance – are described and illustrated with the aid of a wealth of images. Attention is drawn to those features of particular relevance to differential diagnosis, and the prognostic value of diagnostic imaging is also explained. The final section addresses topics of special interest, including the acute onset of abdominal neoplasms, the problems associated with radiation protection in the emergency setting, and medicolegal issues and informed content. The book will be of value for all radiologists working in emergency settings in which pediatric patients (newborn and children accessing the emergency department) are regularly examined.

Giant Intracranial Aneurysms: A Case-Based Atlas of Imaging and Treatment


By (author): Naci Kocer

This atlas focuses on the imaging and treatment options available for giant intracranial aneurysms since 1990s in the beginning of the so-called modern endovascular era. During this period, there were significant advances made in the therapy of small intracranial aneurysms though the treatment of giant aneurysms continued to pose an insurmountable challenge. At the turn of this century, this grim scenario gradually improved with better understanding of the pathophysiology of giant intracranial aneurysms. This changed scenario in giant intracranial aneurysm therapy has been illustrated with the aid of informative clinical case studies. The clinical presentation of giant aneurysms in adults and children is described as are the merits of different imaging modalities explained and illustrated. Extensive consideration has been given to modern fusion imaging that has improved our insight into the nature of the disease. Endovascular treatment approaches (including illustrative open surgical approaches) and reconstructive and deconstructive strategies are fully documented, with careful attention given to factors that influence management strategies, treatment choice and complications.The atlas will be a valuable reference and practical aid for neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, fellowship trainees, postgraduate & graduate students.
