Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsies

 Radiology  Comments Off on Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsies
Sep 112018
 

Modern imaging methods have made it possible to detect breast cancer at an earlier stage than in the past. Nevertheless, a large majority of suspicious findings at screening subsequently prove to be benign. It is therefore important to be able to identify benign lesions in a manner that is reliable, tissue sparing, patient friendly, and cost-effective. More than 70% of breast biopsies can now be performed using minimally invasive procedures that meet these criteria. This book examines in detail vacuum-assisted minimally invasive breast biopsy systems (ATEC, EnCor, Intact, Mammotome and Vacora), stereotactic systems, MRI-guided procedures, and ductoscopy. Further chapters are devoted to the pathology of the breast tissue obtained using these procedures, their limitations, the implications of recent advances in breast imaging, and the results of cost-benefit analyses. The closing chapter provides a systematic review and meta-analysis of recent data.

Neuroimaging in Multiple Sclerosis

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Neuroimaging in Multiple Sclerosis
Sep 112018
 

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease that affects the whole brain. Neuroimaging techniques that can help elucidate and characterize the nature and mechanism of tissue injury and disease progression in MS are of particular importance, given their roles in seeking successful preventive and therapeutic treatments for the disease. Imaging biomarkers of MS include multiple lesions, brain atrophy and normal appearing brain tissue abnormalities. Although MS is considered to be an autoimmune inflammatory disease that primarily activates hematogenous macrophages that destroy myelin, growing evidence strongly suggests that MS is a diffused neurodegenerative disease. Imaging myelin in the brain has great potential in revealing the myelination and maturation process in the brain, and can help further explain the link between the initial inflammatory event and subsequent degenerative processes of the disease. While myelin is most abundant in white matter, forefront studies suggest that demyelination could occur in grey matter during aging and MS. Further improvements are expected in this active research field in terms of quantification and improvement of myelin detection accuracy. The neuroimaging techniques in MS detection can be further extended to other neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and white matter injuries following stroke. Furthermore, cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) describes the compensatory dilatory capacity of cerebral vasculature in upregulating perfusion. Investigating the hypercapnia-induced CVR characteristics using well-validated pseudo-continuous ASL (pCASL) for CBF and BOLD fMRI acquisitions could provide a physiological clue to the underlying neurovascular and vascular inflammatory mechanism in the etiology of MS.

Ultrasonography in Vascular Diagnosis: A Therapy-Oriented Textbook and Atlas,Third Edition

 Radiology  Comments Off on Ultrasonography in Vascular Diagnosis: A Therapy-Oriented Textbook and Atlas,Third Edition
Sep 062018
 

This book, now in its revised and updated third edition, is designed to meet the needs of both novice and experienced sonographers by offering a superbly illustrated, wide-ranging account of the use of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of vascular diseases. Each of the main chapters is subdivided into text and atlas sections. The text part documents the relevant ultrasound anatomy, explains the examination procedure, specifies the indications for diagnostic ultrasound, describes normal and pathological findings, and considers the clinical impact of the examination.
The atlas part presents a rich compilation of case material illustrating the typical ultrasound findings for both common vascular diseases and rarer conditions that are nevertheless significant for the vascular surgeon and angiologist. The new edition places special emphasis on the role of hemodynamics in clinical symptomatology, and the use of spectral analysis techniques is fully explained. Particular attention is also drawn to the sources of potential discrepancies between investigative methods, including different ultrasound studies, the role of contrast-enhanced studies, and the therapeutic consequences of pathological findings. Helpful algorithms are included to illustrate how targeted ultrasound diagnosis often permits therapeutic planning without the need for further imaging techniques.

Cancer Therapy with Radiolabeled Antibodies explores the most current experimental and clinical advances in the newly emerging field of cancer radioimmunotherapy (RAIT). Providing a multidisciplinary and international context, some of the world’s leading experts examine the problems and prospects of RAIT from radiation, immunological, chemical, physical, physiological, and clinical perspectives with both overviews and original research.
Discussions cover the up-to-date clinical results in the RAIT of ovarian, breast, colorectal, and brain cancers, as well as the current status of RAIT in the management of B cell lymphomas. Radiobiology, dosimetry, radiochemistry, targeting biology in experimental models, clinical experiences in hematopoietic and solid tumors, and new approaches to improve cancer radioimmunotherapy are also discussed. In addition, new dosimetry concepts, new labeling methods, new concepts of antibody pharmacokinetics, and new methods to enhance selective cancer radioimmunotherapy are included.

 Dentistry, Radiology  Comments Off on Therapeutic Ultrasound in Dentistry: Applications for Dentofacial Repair, Regeneration, and Tissue Engineering
Aug 292018
 

This book highlights the potential of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound, or LIPUS, to introduce a new era in dentistry by revolutionizing the approach to dental treatment and providing a cure for pathologic conditions long considered untreatable. Readers will find information on all aspects of LIPUS, from its mode of action and biologic mechanisms to the full range of emerging clinical applications.
The role of LIPUS in promoting dental tissue repair and regeneration and in tissue engineering is fully explained in a series of chapters focusing on stimulation of cell metabolism in the dentocraniofacial region, bone healing, periodontal regeneration, the temporomandibular joint, pulp cell differentiation, the salivary glands, and orthodontics. The past two decades have witnessed numerous discoveries that have enhanced the scope for use of therapeutic ultrasound in dentistry. In summarizing the latest knowledge in this exciting field, the book will be of interest to dental surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, and other practitioners.
