Practical signal and image processing in clinical cardiology

 Cardiovascular, Radiology  Comments Off on Practical signal and image processing in clinical cardiology
Sep 122019
 

Modern signal and image acquisition systems used in the field of cardiology acquire, analyze, and store data digitally. Surface electrocardiography, intra-cardiac electrogram recording, echocardiograms, x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography are among the modalities in the cardiology field where signal processing is applied. Digital signal processing techniques allow us to automate many of the analyses that had previously been done manually with greater precision, accuracy and speed, as well as detect features and patterns in data that may be too subtle to observe by eye. As more cardiologists are becoming more reliant on such technology, a basic understanding of digital signals and the techniques used to extract information from these signals are required.

Pain Imaging: A Clinical-Radiological Approach to Pain Diagnosis

 Radiology  Comments Off on Pain Imaging: A Clinical-Radiological Approach to Pain Diagnosis
Sep 062019
 

This book addresses all pain imaging aspects related to both the central nervous system and the body (thorax, abdomen and pelvis), thus updating the international literature on the topic.
By adopting a clinical-radiological approach and offering a comprehensive differential diagnosis for a number of painful syndromes (many of which can mimic one other), the work aims to support and enhance the diagnostic management of these patients, suggesting the most appropriate diagnostic algorithm.
The book is divided into separate sections for each anatomical macro-area, and the chapters cover the respective topics from both clinical and radiological perspectives. Further, the book includes extensive electronic supplementary material. As such, it offers an invaluable tool for radiologists, neuroradiologists and clinicians working in internal medicine, surgery and neurology, and could also be used in residency programs for these groups.

Head and Neck Ultrasonography: Essential and Extended Applications Edition 2

 Radiology  Comments Off on Head and Neck Ultrasonography: Essential and Extended Applications Edition 2
Sep 042019
 

Beautifully illustrated in full-color, Head and Neck Ultrasonography is regarded as the first, as well as the definitive, English-language textbook of head and neck ultrasonography by and for clinicians and surgeons. This book comprehensively and effectively addresses fundamentals of ultrasound physics, equipment, normal head and neck ultrasound anatomy, and technique. Individual chapters cover specific anatomy and pathology. Interventional ultrasonography and dynamic ultra-sonography is discussed and new directions and techniques in ultrasonography are presented. Head and Neck Ultrasonography is unique in both its thoroughness and in its relevance to the clinical setting, where ultrasonographic examination is a dynamic and interactive process between physician and patient. In addition to numerous valuable examples of still ultrasound images throughout the text, a CD-ROM with video clips illustrating both the process and the interpretation of specific examinations and procedures is provided with the text. In response to the rapidly growing body of journal literature citing the utility and advantages of neck ultrasonography, especially in the management of thyroid disease, head and neck cancer, benign neoplasms and masses in the head in neck, Dr. Orloff, along with expert contributors, most of whom are surgeons, radiologists, endocrinologists, pathologists, and research scientists, have organized a complete textbook of head and neck ultrasonography, one to become the ideal complement to this surge in appreciation and utilization of ultrasonography.

Radiation and health

 Radiology  Comments Off on Radiation and health
Sep 042019
 

Radiation and the effects of radioactivity have been known for more than 100 years. International research spanning this period has yielded a great deal of information about radiation and its biological effects and this activity has resulted in the discovery of many applications in medicine and industry including cancer therapy, medical diagnostics, and quality control during manufacturing.After Chernobyl, there has been a tendency to regard radiation as harmful, even in situations where the doses are equal to or below the natural level. Radiation and Health presents a balanced view of the nature of radiation and its existence in the environment, as well as discussing its effects on plants, animals and humans. It also provides a survey of knowledge to date, from the discovery and basic theory of radiation and radioactivity to more recent developments concerned with the nature of radiation and its effect on biological systems. Numerous examples, exercises, and diagrams are included to make this book accessible to non-specialists.Radiation and Health provides information about the uses and consequences of ionizing radiation in medicine, research, and industry. It offers a basis for applying some basic calculations and comparing the results, and identifies risk factors to help establish rules and regulations that limit radiation doses, both to the individual and to society.

Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Ophthalmoscopy

 Radiology  Comments Off on Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Ophthalmoscopy
Aug 262019
 

This book focuses on the emerging non-invasive imaging technique of Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Ophthalmoscopy (FLIO). FLIO reveals unique information on retinal diseases, ranging from age-related macular degeneration and vascular diseases to hereditary retinal dystrophies. Fluorescence lifetimes enable the evaluation of disease progression before irreversible structural changes occur. The image acquisition is suitable for diagnostic purposes and follow-up examinations to investigate the natural course of disease, and to monitor the effects of possible therapies.
This book fills the gap between available literature and gives state-of-the-art guidance on the principles of the FLIO technique, image acquisition, and data analysis. Written by a team of expert leaders within this field, this book will be relevant for scientists and clinicians with an interest in ophthalmoscopy.

Exploring the question as to why more than half the world continues to have little or no access to medical imaging and radiology, this important second edition, fully revised and expanded, offers not only answers but practical solutions, providing new tools, ideas, and strategies for bringing vital radiology to low-resource areas.
Based on RAD-AID’s ten years of work (2008-2018) serving indigent communities around the world, the book’s interdisciplinary approach offers the synthesis of business management, government policy formulation, clinical methods, and engineering in order to integrate economic development, technology innovation, clinical model planning, educational strategies, and public health measures. The gold-standard title in the field, Radiology in Global Health, 2nd Edition is intended for a broad audience, including physicians (especially radiologists and radiology residents), radiology technologists, radiology nurses, sonographers, hardware/software engineers, policy-makers, business leaders, researchers, and public health specialists at all levels who use or implement health care services for underserved populations. In addition, as health care providers use radiology in the process of clinical decision-making, this title is also designed for clinical physicians, nurses, nurse-practitioners, physician assistants, and paramedical personnel. Administrators and public health personnel will also be interested, as the planning of radiology services for health care systems at both the facility level and at the population level requires a clear understanding of the technological challenges and management opportunities.
