Quantification of Biophysical Parameters in Medical Imaging

 Radiology  Comments Off on Quantification of Biophysical Parameters in Medical Imaging
Mar 232018
 


This book provides a selection of essential knowledge on the image-based quantification of biophysical parameters for the purpose of clinical diagnosis. The authors regard clinical imaging scanners as physical measurement systems capable of quantifying intrinsic parameters for depiction of the constitution and biophysical properties of in vivo tissue.
On the one hand, this approach supports the development of new methods of imaging highly reproducible, system-independent, and quantitative biomarkers, and these methods receive detailed attention in the book. On the other hand, the reader will also gain a deeper understanding of how physical tissue properties interact with the generation of signals in medical imaging, opening new windows on the intricate and fascinating relationship between the structure and function of living tissues. The book will be of interest to all who recognize the limitations of basing clinical diagnosis primarily on visual inspection of images and who wish to learn more about the diagnostic potential of quantitative and biophysics-based medical imaging markers and the challenges that the paucity of such markers poses for next-generation imaging technologies.

Diffusion Weighted Imaging of the Genitourinary System: Techniques and Clinical Applications

 Radiology  Comments Off on Diffusion Weighted Imaging of the Genitourinary System: Techniques and Clinical Applications
Mar 212018
 

This book discusses diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) and its evolving clinical role.
DWI has frequently been used in the abdomen and pelvis but is now increasingly being used in other clinical applications, especially for the diagnostic workup of oncologic patients. Standardization and clinical validation of quantitative DWI related biomarkers is still ongoing, although efforts have been undertaken, especially in the prostate, to provide standardized imaging guidelines for different clinical indications.
The technical aspects and clinical applications of DWI presented focus on the respective anatomical region and its pathologies. The book is unique in providing tables of technical details (imaging protocols, artifacts, optimization techniques) for each chapter, making this complex area as simple and practical as possible.

The book is intended for radiologists interested in urogenital radiology and also for radiology residents.

 Medical Atlas, Radiology  Comments Off on Atlas of Deep Endometriosis: MRI and Laparoscopic Correlations
Mar 152018
 

This Atlas presents an MRI-based guide to the diagnosis, treatment and follow up of deep endometriosis. Developed by professionals with a extensive clinical experience in the diagnosis and treatment of deep endometriosis, it provides a global overview of the disease, from basic clinical aspects of imaging diagnosis, to the correlation with surgical findings and histopathological results.
Deep endometriosis is a serious gynecological condition, which can severely impact on women’s quality of life. It shares the main features of regular endometriosis, but also displays a highly infiltrative pattern, involving multiple organs and leading to severe symptoms such as dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain and dyspareunia. Atlas of Deep Endometriosis – MRI and Laparoscopic Correlations is a complete guide, intended for radiologists, gynecologists and all other medical professionals interested on the diagnosis and treatment of deep endometriosis.

Progress in PET Radiopharmaceuticals

 Pharmacology, Radiology  Comments Off on Progress in PET Radiopharmaceuticals
Mar 152018
 

This book describes classical and potential PET radiopharmaceuticals (PET-RPs) which can provide high-resolution 5D images in-vivo to simultaneously diagnose and treat the patient. This novel (theranostic) approach avoids futile therapies, unnecessary radiation exposure, and saves a lot of time, money, and energy.

The most significant challenge is to properly build Cyclotron & PET RPs labs. Existing books offer insufficient knowledge to accomplish the full potential of these highly specialized, expansive, and sophisticated labs, demanding in-depth knowledge, confidence, cooperation, a mutual understanding, adjustment, time management, team effort, patience, resilience, and dedication.

A systematic approach is provided to integrate Cyclotron and PET-RPS labs, run the cyclotron properly, resolve technical problems efficiently, and maintain quality control (QC) without being exposed to an unnecessary radiation hazard due to repetitive run failure, innocence, ignorance, negligence, misconception, misunderstanding, and/or overconfidence. Described QC experiments can be globally reproduced in other labs.

The contents provided are thought-provoking and motivate cyclotron engineers, basic scientists, radiopharmaceutical scientists, radiopharmacists, and physicians to develop novel PET-RPs in this challenging the era of Nanotheranostics.

The most recent knowledge of potential PET-RPs in the early theranostics of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, drug addiction, obesity, neurobehavioral disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic inflammatory illnesses is provided with currently limited treatment options.

This unique, informative, and timely released book will act as a helpful guide; it is an applied textbook for basic biomedical students, scientists, researchers, teachers, doctors, administrators, and affiliated staff involved in current and future development of novel PET-RPs to accomplish personalized theranostics.

Book Review
“This book is a thoroughly compiled addition to the existing literature in the field of radiopharmaceuticals, their quality control and personalized theranostics in various disease conditions. It will serve as a reference book for both basic scientists and clinicians as well as for the new comers in this field undergoing training. PET imaging is a very specialized and technologically advanced area that provides spatiotemporal information and significantly contributes to decision making in complex disease conditions like cancer, brain disorders and cardiovascular problems. Author of this book, Professor Sushil K. Sharma, an expert in the field of neurosciences and medical radiopharmaceutical technology has shared his own personal experience, elaborated findings of others and given a lucid account of fundamentals of PET radiopharmaceuticals and their applications to both basic and clinical research.” – Vijay L. Kumar, Department of Pharmacology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India
