Jun 082018
 

This textbook offers a comprehensive guide to interventional radiology (IR) for medical students, residents, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and fellows. IR is constantly evolving to meet the growing demands of patient care by applying cutting-edge technology to minimally invasive image-guided procedures. A dynamic specialty, interventional radiology has gained significant traction and interest in recent years, with combined IR/DR residencies rising to meet the increasing demand. This book addresses this growing need for a reference in IR, allowing students to gain a solid foundation to prepare them for their careers.

The book is divided into two main sections, with many images and key point boxes throughout that offer high-yield pearls along with the specific How To’s necessary for practice. The first section is designed to give readers an introduction to IR, including radiation safety, commonly used devices, patient care, and anatomy. The second portion divides into sections covering major body areas, diseases, conditions, and interventions. These chapters cover procedures including pathophysiology, indications for treatment, as well as alternative treatments before delving into interventional therapy. IR Playbook gives medical students, residents, and trainees a full perspective of interventional radiology.

May 312018
 

Written by a team of expert authors from all members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team, Pancreatic Cancer summarizes our current understanding of the epidemiology, genetics, imaging and treatment of these complex malignancies. Each imaging modality is reviewed, with an emphasis on MDCT, MRI and EUS; the key aspects of image interpretation are covered. Separate chapters focus on diagnosis and staging of ductal adenocarcinoma, cystic pancreatic neoplasms and neuroendocrine tumors; rare neoplasms and benign pancreatic disorders that mimic pancreatic cancer are also considered. All treatment options are discussed in detail, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and the multidisciplinary approach to patients with more advanced disease is fully reviewed. This volume is a state-of-the-art review of current practice and knowledge of pancreatic cancer.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Skeletal Musculature

 Radiology  Comments Off on Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Skeletal Musculature
May 302018
 

In the past, MRI has often been assigned a subsidiary role in the diagnostic work-up of muscular diseases owing to the frequent inability of routine MRI protocols to detect pathognomonic findings. This situation is changing with the advent of modern MR imaging techniques that offer deeper insights into various surrogate pathophysiologic parameters. In this book, recognized experts from around the world provide a comprehensive overview of the value of cutting-edge MRI for the assessment of normal and diseased skeletal muscle.
A range of aspects are covered, from the general role of MRI in imaging the skeletal musculature, including in comparison with ultrasonography, through to the current value of MRI in the diagnostic work-up of different diseases. In addition, several chapters present research findings in respect of modern morphological and functional MRI techniques and provide examples of the added value provided by these techniques when evaluating muscular diseases.

Radiation Dose from Multidetector CT, Second Edition

 Radiology  Comments Off on Radiation Dose from Multidetector CT, Second Edition
May 302018
 

Computed tomography (CT) is a powerful technique providing precise and confident diagnoses. The burgeoning use of CT has resulted in an exponential increase in collective radiation dose to the population. Despite investigations supporting the use of lower radiation doses, surveys highlight the lack of proper understanding of CT parameters that affect radiation dose. Dynamic advances in CT technology also make it important to explain the latest dose-saving strategies in an easy-to-comprehend manner.
This book aims to review all aspects of the radiation dose from CT and to provide simple rules and tricks for radiologists and radiographers that will assist in the appropriate use of CT technique. The second edition includes a number of new chapters on the most up-to-date strategies and technologies for radiation dose reduction while updating the outstanding contents of the first edition. Vendor perspectives are included, and an online image gallery will also be available to readers.

Muscle Injuries in Sport Athletes: Clinical Essentials and Imaging Findings (Sports and Traumatology)

 Radiology, Sports Medicine  Comments Off on Muscle Injuries in Sport Athletes: Clinical Essentials and Imaging Findings (Sports and Traumatology)
May 272018
 

This book attempts to provide a comprehensive look at all of the pathologies of muscles that are likely to be encountered in treating sports-related injuries. Its purpose is to give the practitioner a guide for identifying injuries and choosing the best therapeutic strategy. The first part presents the consensus view of current knowledge: the physiology of lesions and their prognosis as well as their anatomy, clinical imaging, and treatment. Then each of the muscles is described in turn, with a review of anatomy, clinical examination, the results of imaging, and therapeutic choices for acute and chronic injuries. A major section is dedicated to imaging, with the emphasis on which diagnostic methods are best for specific injuries and how to use diagnostic imaging to determine the most suitable therapeutic strategies. Special care has been taken to provide high-quality illustrations that clearly show how to identify the lesion of the damaged muscle. A wealth of illustrations, many in color, are included. Finally, the book concludes with some clinical cases and technical notes relevant to treatment of sports-related muscle injuries.
