Essentials of Functional MRI

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Patrick W. Stroman

During the last two decades, new developments in functional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) have made it possible to detect changes in the brain over time, as opposed to the “snapshot” produced by conventional MRI. Essentials of Functional MRI breaks down the technical challenges for physicians, researchers, and technologists who use functional MRI but may not be experts in the necessary math and physics. The author describes the theory and practical details of functional MRI (fMRI) methodology, including how to acquire and analyze images, and a wide range of examples demonstrate how fMRI has been used thus far. The author provides the essential information to study, understand, use, and teach the practical aspects of fMRI for those people who are most likely to extend its use into clinical practice.

Emergency Radiology COFFEE Case Book: Case-Oriented Fast Focused Effective Education

Emergency radiology requires consistent, timely, and accurate imaging interpretation with the rapid application of clinical knowledge across many areas of radiology practice that have traditionally been fragmented by organ system or modality divisions. This text unifies this body of knowledge into an educational resource capturing the core competencies required of an emergency radiologist. This book of 85 index cases is organized by clinical presentations that simulate real-life radiology practice in the emergency department. Companion cases spanning the differential diagnoses and spectrum of disease provide hundreds more examples for a fast, focused and effective education we like to call COFFEE (Case-Oriented Fast Focused Effective Education). This text can serve as a “go to” resource for radiologists, as well as any other physicians working in the emergency department. It will be an excellent companion for radiologists preparing for initial board certification or re-certification by the American Board of Radiology.

PET/CT in Radiotherapy Planning (Clinicians’ Guides to Radionuclide Hybrid Imaging)

This pocket book offers a succinct but comprehensive overview of the role of PET/CT in radiotherapy planning. Individual chapters are devoted to specific application of the technique to particular tumor types, including non-small cell lung, gastrointestinal, head and neck squamous cell, prostate, gynecological, and pediatric tumors. Helpful information is also presented on the practical implementation of PET/CT in routine oncological practice. Technical and logistical issues are discussed, and guidance provided on potential problems and pitfalls and available solutions. The book will be invaluable in assisting readers to exploit PET/CT’s ability to significantly improve delineation of tumor tissue through the addition of metabolic information to structural imaging data, thereby avoiding unnecessary radiation injury and associated complications while enhancing therapeutic effects and minimizing the risk of marginal recurrences. It is published within the Springer series Clinicians’ Guides to Radionuclide Hybrid Imaging, compiled under the auspices of the British Nuclear Medicine Society.

Acute Side Effects of Radiation Therapy: A Guide to Management

By (author): Ainaz Sourati, Ahmad Ameri, Mona Malekzadeh

This book provides clear guidance on how to manage a wide range of side effects frequently encountered when treating patients with radiation therapy. For each potential side effect, incidence, mechanism, symptoms, and grading are carefully described. All aspects of management are addressed, drawing on the latest available evidence and highlighting key details of importance in clinical routine.

The introduction of new radiation therapy techniques such as 3D conformal radiation therapy, intensity-modulated radiation therapy, and image-guided radiation therapy has reduced normal tissue doses and, accordingly, treatment complications. Nevertheless, a significant percentage of patients still experience acute side effects, in part because the threshold doses for these toxicities are typically lower than those for late effects. Acute toxicities may lead to interruption of treatment and be associated with an increase in late damage. A swift and effective response is therefore essential. This book will enable the reader to provide effective care for each side effect, thereby improving patient compliance with treatment and treatment outcomes.
