A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF ECHOCARDIOGRAPHIC IMAGING ENHANCED BY HUNDREDS OF ONLINE ANIMATIONS VIEWABLE ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE
EIGHTEEN CHAPTERS COVERS EVERY IMPORTANT CARDIAC DISEASE AND ABNORMALITY
Echocardiographic imaging has become essential to the proper diagnosis of every type of cardiac disease and disorder, and there is no more efficient or innovative way to learn the proper use of cardiac ultrasound in clinical practice than Practical Bedside Echocardiography Cases. This powerful combination text and online video collection delivers coverage of every major cardiac topic and abnormality.
There are eighteen chapters that include questions followed by detailed discussion that answers the question, as well as illustrations and text supplemented by animations that can be opened with a QR code reader using a smartphone or a tablet with Internet access. An index of all videos and direct links to them online are also included. Multiple variations on a topic are often included to illustrate the full spectrum of the abnormality being discussed. Bedside findings and the electrocardiogram, an integral part of the practice of echocardiography, are incorporated into the discussion whenever possible.
Numerous references are provided, with a strong emphasis on freely available full-text articles. These are identified by an open book icon indicating they are readable as PDFs. Other references point you to full-text cardiac physical diagnosis articles that will prove valuable at the bedside; some are annotated to further explain their value, and others were chosen for the comprehensive illustration of cardiac pathology as it relates to echocardiographic imaging. The book also includes references to classic echocardiography articles. Practical Bedside Echocardiography Cases will prove invaluable to medical students, cardiovascular practitioners at all levels of training, cardiac sonographers, and for users of hand-held, bedside, point-of-care ultrasound devices.
This new project on PET-MR imaging in oncology includes digital interactive software matching the cases in the book. The interactive version of the atlas is based on the latest web standard, HTML5, ensuring compatibility with any computer operating system as well as a dedicated version for Apple iPad.
The book opens with an introduction to the principles of hybrid imaging that pays particular attention to PET/MR imaging and standard PET/MR acquisition protocols. A wide range of illustrated clinical case reports are then presented. Each case study includes a short clinical history, findings, and teaching points, followed by illustrations, legends, and comments.
The multimedia version of the book includes dynamic movies that allow the reader to browse through series of rotating 3D images (MIP or volume rendered), display blending between PET and MR, and dynamic visualization of 3D image volumes. The movies can be played either continuously or sequentially for better exploration of sets of images.
The editors of this state-of-the-art publication are key opinion leaders in the field of multimodality imaging. Professor Osman Ratib (Geneva) and Professor Markus Schwaiger (Munich) were the first in Europe to initiate the clinical adoption of PET/MR imaging. Professor Thomas Beyer (Zurich) is an internationally renowned pioneering physicist in the field of hybrid imaging. Individual clinical cases presented in this book are co-authored by leading international radiologists and nuclear physicians experts in the use of PET and MRI.
MRI can play an important role in identifying and localizing epileptogenic foci. This book aims to provide the clinical and imaging information required in order to decide whether an MRI scan is appropriate and whether it is likely to be sufficient to detect a lesion. The first part of the book presents background information on epilepsy patients and explains how to perform an MRI examination. Detailed attention is paid to functional MRI and post-processing, and the examination of subcategories of patients is also discussed. The second part of the book then documents the MRI findings obtained in the full range of epileptogenic lesions with the aid of high-quality images. Throughout, emphasis is placed on guiding the reader in the correct interpretation of the imaging findings. Both radiologists and referring physicians will find this book to be an indispensable guide to the optimal use of MRI in epilepsy.
This book describes the development of quantitative techniques for ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging in the assessment of architectural and vascular parameters. It presents morphological vascular research based on the development of quantitative imaging techniques for the use of clinical B-mode ultrasound images, and preclinical architectural vascular investigations on quantitative imaging techniques for ultrasounds and photoacoustics.
The book is divided into two main parts, the first of which focuses on the development and validation of quantitative techniques for the assessment of vascular morphological parameters that can be extracted from B-mode ultrasound longitudinal images of the common carotid artery. In turn, the second part highlights quantitative imaging techniques for assessing the architectural parameters of vasculature that can be extracted from 3D volumes, using both contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) imaging and photoacoustic imaging without the addition of any contrast agent.
Sharing and summarizing the outcomes of this important research, the book will be of interest to a broad range of researchers and practitioners in the fields of medical imaging and biomedical engineering.
This book cites several clinical indications for embolization. Embolization is a safe and effective therapy for intra visceral bleeding, closure of arterio-venous malformations, non-surgical nephrectomy and splenectomy. It is especially useful in patients with several critical co-morbid medical conditions which preclude radical surgeries. It is organ preserving, with limited complications.
In the text, the procedural details are described in each clinical situation. The materials used for the procedure are also be described. The procedural pitfalls and complications are detailed in addition to precautions to be taken during the procedure.
This will serve as a reference guide for cardiologists and vascular radiologists.
The authors, Drs. Runge, Smoker, and Valvanis, have done a superb job in concentrating the breath of clinical neuroradiology into a manageable book, which may easily be read in 1 or 2 fortnights. Neuroradiology: The EssentialsWith MR and CT should be a favorite both for boards study as well as to be kept close at hand in the reading room. I enthusiastically recommend this textbook to all residents, neuroradiology fellows, and general diagnostic radiologists. — Investigative Radiology
