Radiofrequency in Cosmetic Dermatology (Aesthetic Dermatology, Vol. 2)

 Anesthesiology, Dermatology, Radiology  Comments Off on Radiofrequency in Cosmetic Dermatology (Aesthetic Dermatology, Vol. 2)
Nov 202018
 

Radiofrequency (RF) has been used in many areas of medicine for some time, but only gained popularity in aesthetics in the early 2000s. Although initial procedures provided variable results, the field of RF has grown dramatically. Currently, a multitude of devices which offer an array of technologies, each geared to specific applications, are on the market. In this book, a comprehensive discussion of the evolving area of RF is provided, and the current and cutting-edge technologies which span from noninvasive treatments of facial wrinkles to invasive body contouring procedures are discussed in detail. The methodologies covered include thermal and ablative modalities, volumetric and fractional approaches, as well as practical aspects of application in clinical practice. Included are also pearls on patient management and prevention and treatment of complications. Finally, RF-based procedures are compared with equivalent laser and surgical approaches in a risk-benefit evaluation. Reviewing the standard of care for RF-based treatments and providing information relevant for clinical decision-making and practice management, this publication is a valuable tool for dermatologists, plastic surgeons and all practitioners who use or are contemplating the introduction of RF into practice.

Radiation Disaster Medicine: Perspective from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident

 Radiology  Comments Off on Radiation Disaster Medicine: Perspective from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident
Nov 102018
 

While many books are available on disaster medicine, none is specifically devoted to the role of physicians in the management of patients exposed to radiation leakage from a damaged nuclear power plant. Radiation Disaster Medicine aims to fill this void based on the response to the Fukushima nuclear accident. Each chapter addresses principles and practices of radiation medicine within the specific context of that accident. Topics covered include the role of physicians in radiation disasters, the concepts of external and internal exposure, prehospital and hospital response, disaster behavioral health, and radiation emergency response from the perspective of national and international institutions. Most of the contributors are active educators and researchers in radiation medicine with first-hand experience in dealing with prehospital triage and management of patients within secondary and tertiary care hospitals in Japan.
