Clinical MRI of the Abdomen: Why,How,When


This volume, which explains why, when, and how abdominal MRI should be used, focuses in particular on the most recent developments in the field. After introductory chapters on technical considerations, protocol optimization, and contrast agents, MRI of the various solid and hollow viscera of the abdomen is addressed in a series of detailed chapters. Relevant clinical information is provided, and state of the art protocols presented. With the help of numerous high-quality illustrations, normal, variant, and abnormal imaging findings are described and potential artefacts highlighted. Differential diagnosis is given extensive consideration, and comparisons are made with competing methodologies when relevant. Each of the chapters is rounded off by a section on “pearls and pitfalls”. The closing chapters focus on findings in the pediatric abdomen, advances in MRI specifically relevant to cancer patients, and the use of abdominal MRI at 3 Tesla. This book, written by leading experts, will be of value to all who are involved in learning, performing, interpreting, and reporting abdominal MRI examinations.

Clinical Magnetoencephalography and Magnetic Source Imaging


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Andrew C. Papanicolaou

This is the first volume to explore the field of clinical magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic source imaging (MSI), the techniques measuring the magnetic fields generated by neuronal activity in the brain. Describing the empirical knowledge gained during the last two decades, this book will serve as a basis for the training of clinicians and scientists entering this new and exciting field. The book covers the methods for recording MEG and performing MSI in a clinical setting and includes practical examples of data collection and analysis. It explains why MEG should be used in the evaluation and treatment of patients being considered for epilepsy surgery, concluding with a section describing the potential for future applications of these methods. This is essential reading for graduate students in clinical neuroscience, residents in neurology and psychiatry, neuroradiology and neurosurgery, specialists in neurophysiology and epilepsy, and clinicians in a wide range of related brain sciences.

CT Densitometry in Osteoporosis: The impact on management of the patient (Series in Radiology)


By (author): L.E. Lampmann, S.A. Duursma, J.H.J. Ruys

In 1977 a Philips Tomoscan 200, second generation, whole body CT scanner was installed at the Department of Radiodiagnosis of the University Hospital of Utrecht (The Netherlands) and its new possibilities concerning the measurements of bone mineral content (BMC) had been considered. As a result of the close cooperation between the Clinical Research Group for Bone Metabolism and the Department of Radiodiagnosis of the University Hospital of Utrecht a new project was started. The aim of a pilot study was to investigate the application of CT scanning in BMC determination in comparison with existing parameters such as histovolumetric measurements in transiliac bone biopsy specimens, morphometric measurements in hand X-ray films and other methods. In 1979 a Philips Tomoscan 300, third generation CT scanner became available. With this new scanner many problems of the Tomoscan 200 seemed to be solved. An examination protocol was designed with a standardized method for CT mea­ surements and a follow-up study was started. On account of the availability and the participation of a number of patients it became possible to realize this study. The results made it possible to draw conclusions concerning CT densitometry, with an impact on the management of the osteoporotic patient. A new dimension is added to the diagnostic procedures concerning osteoporosis and to the methods for measuring the effect of therapeutic regimes. Our aim is to offer the reader insight in the possibilities and limitations of this technique, compared with other parameters in BMC determination.

Fine Needle Aspiration of Bone Tumours: The Clinical, Radiological, Cytological Approach (Monographs in Clinical Cytology, Vol. 19)


By (author): M. Åkerman, H.A. Domanski, K. Jonsson

In recent years, fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) has become a widely accepted procedure in the diagnosis of bone lesions. Rapid progress in immunocytochemistry and molecular genetics has increased the role of FNAC in the investigation of primary bone lesions. The purpose of this book is to facilitate the cytological evaluation of FNA smears from skeletal lesions and to provide diagnostic criteria based on the combined evaluation of clinical data and radiographic and cytological features. The major aim is to thoroughly describe and illustrate the most common entities as well as the diagnostic use of ancillary techniques. A number of rare primary bone tumours/lesions are also illustrated. The selection of entities illustrated in this comprehensive manual is based mainly on experience with patients referred to the Musculoskeletal Centre in Lund, Sweden, which now comprises smear data from approximately 1000 skeletal tumours/lesions collected between 1966 and 2006. This publication will be a valuable resource for pathologists, cytopathologists, radiologists, oncologists and orthopaedic surgeons involved in the work-up and management of patients with bone lesions.

Neuroimaging, Part I, Volume 135 (Handbook of Clinical Neurology)


Neuroimaging, Part One, a text from The Handbook of Clinical Neurology illustrates how neuroimaging is rapidly expanding its reach and applications in clinical neurology. It is an ideal resource for anyone interested in the study of the nervous system, and is useful to both beginners in various related fields and to specialists who want to update or refresh their knowledge base on neuroimaging.

This first volume specifically covers a description of imaging techniques used in the adult brain, aiming to bring a comprehensive view of the field of neuroimaging to a varying audience. It brings broad coverage of the topic using many color images to illustrate key points.

Contributions from leading global experts are collated, providing the broadest view of neuroimaging as it currently stands. For a number of neurological disorders, imaging is not only critical for diagnosis, but also for monitoring the effect of therapies, and the entire field is moving from curing diseases to preventing them. Most of the information contained in this volume reflects the newness of this approach, pointing to this new horizon in the study of neurological disorders.

  • Provides a relevant description of the technologies used in neuroimaging, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and several others
  • Ideal resource for anyone studying the nervous system, from beginners to specialists interested in recent advances in neuroimaging of the adult brain
  • Discusses the application of imaging techniques to the study of brain and spinal cord disease and its use in various syndromes

Real-Time 3D Interventional Echocardiography


By (author): Francesco Fulvio Faletra, Gila Perk, Natesa G. Pandian, Hans-Joachim Nesser, Itzhak Kronzon

?Advances in technology and human skill have made possible percutaneous catheter-based procedures for a wide spectrum of structural heart disease. A growing number of structural heart diseases that over the past two decades would have required open heart surgery can be safely treated using percutaneous catheter-based procedures.Traditionally, guidance of catheter-based procedures is done using fluoroscopy and two-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (2D TEE). The recent introduction in the clinical practice of RT 3D TEE has overcome most of limitations of 2D TEE. The purpose of this book is to describe the use of this imaging modality in percutaneous interventional procedures underlying its growing role and acceptance among the interventional cardiologists but also emphasizing areas of weakness. Because today interventional cardiology ranges from closure of atrial and ventricular septal defects, to repair of mitral regurgitation and aortic stenosis, from the closure of left atrial appendage and prosthesis dehiscence, to the recent use in electrophysiological procedure, this book targets not only specialists in echocardiography and interventional cardiology but also general cardiologists. General cardiologists will find in any chapter anatomy of the structure treated (i.e. atrial septum, mitral valve…), a description of the morphopathology as seen with RT 3D TEE (degenerative or ischemic mitral regurgitation) the up-to-date indications to the specific percutaneous treatment and typical and unusual clinical cases.?
