The topic of this book is the modeling of data uncertainty and knowledge for a health engineering problem such as the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system. This is the first book on this subject. It begins with the state of the art in related topics such as data uncertainty, knowledge modeling, and the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system, followed by fundamental and theoretical aspects of this field. Clinically relevant applications of musculoskeletal system modeling are then introduced. The book finishes with a chapter on practical software and tools for knowledge modeling and reasoning purposes.
Benefits: – Leblancs new investigative technique allows the rapid visualisation of the most vulnerable points of the cranial nerves – the course of each nerve is studied radiologically and anatomically, using dissections, injections, serial macroscopic sections, and x-rays – each cranial nerve is depicted from its origin to the muscle with its intracranial, extracranial, and intracranial pathways – the start of each chapter features an illustration of the cranial nerve as a whole, allowing the reader to quickly memorize the cranial anatomy – unique full-colour illustrations make the atlas a reference of outstanding value to clinicians, researchers and students
This book focuses on with musculoskeletal imaging: during the last few years, there have been considerable advances in this area, driven by clinical as well as technological developments. The authors, internationally renowned experts in their field, have contributed chapters that are disease-oriented and cover all relevant imaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and positron emission tomography. As a result, this book offers a comprehensive review of the state of the art in musculoskeletal imaging. It is a valuable resource for general radiologists, radiology residents, rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons, and clinicians from other specialities wishing to update their knowledge in this discipline.
This fully revised and expanded third edition covers all aspects of modern thoracic radiology, and includes important new sections on computer tomographic signs, interventional radiology of the thorax and the latest developments in cardiac CT and MRI diagnostics, as well as a new chapter on high resolution/thin section CT patterns. The section on diffuse lung disease has been expanded and many new CT illustrations have been added. The book contains comprehensive information on the role of new technologies, including MDCT, in the evaluation of thoracic disease, the role of PET/PET-CT in the thorax, and the expanding roles of MDCT and MRI in evaluation of the heart.
This book describes the principles and applications of radiofrequency treatments for various spinal indications, including disc herniation, discogenic and radicular pain, facet joint arthropathy, and benign and malignant lesions of the vertebral column. The aim is to provide a handy guide that will acquaint readers with all aspects of radiofrequency neurotomy at different levels of the spine, enabling them to carry out treatments effectively and safely.
Radiofrequency neurotomy, or radiofrequency ablation, is a minimally invasive procedure that is associated with a reduction in complications, side effects, and risks of anesthesia as well as with lower costs. This book, written by world-renowned authorities in the field, fills a significant gap in the literature by specifically focusing on the use of radiofrequency for spinal conditions. It will be of value to a range of specialists, including interventional neuroradiologists and radiologists, neurosurgeons, and orthopedists.
Improve diagnostic accuracy with cases from leading international musculoskeletal radiologists
“Over 70 international experts have submitted an excellent range of cases encompassing both essential concepts and encountered diagnoses. 3 Stars.”–Doody’s Review Service
Musculoskeletal Imaging Cases offers an efficient and systematic approach to interpreting imaging of the musculoskeletal system. It delivers a one-of-a-kind collection of more than 370 cases with an emphasis on advanced imaging – including MRI, CT, US, and scintigraphy. The book’s logical, easy-to-follow organization is designed for at-the-bench reference. The concise text, numerous multi-modality images, and helpful icons make looking up essential information fast and easy.
More than 370 cases and 2000 multi-modality images
Each case highlights findings, differential diagnoses, and pearls, and contains multiple figures – some with colorful surgical specimens – to help you efficiently interpret and verify your diagnostic findings
Icons, a grading system depicting the spectrum of findings from common to rare, and the consistent chapter organization and structure provide ease-of-use for at-the-bench consultation
Special emphasis on the latest diagnostic modalities includes state-of-art depiction of image findings
Authorship from more than 70 contributing radiologists from the U.S. and around the globe provide a wealth of valuable cases
From congenital or acquired problems in newborns to cardiovascular abnormalities in older children, this comprehensive text explains how to interpret chest radiographs and how to report that information in day-to-day practice. It steers readers through this often challenging area using numerous practical case examples, more than 400 high-quality radiographs, drawings and specimen photographs, straightforward explanations of findings, and the collective experience of several of the world’s foremost experts on cardiac imaging and pediatric cardiology. After an introductory discussion of normal cardiac anatomy and imaging, the authors provide readers with a systematic approach to understanding chest images in children with congenital or acquired heart disease followed by useful bulleted synopses of basic pathologic features, clinical manifestations and radiographic findings.
While the trend in recent decades has been toward increasingly sophisticated imaging modalities, this book successfully illustrates that there is still an extraordinary amount of diagnostic and therapeutic information to be found in chest x-rays.
Multiple perspectives from imagers, cardiologists, and cardiac surgeons on the pathology of congenital heart disease
Summary of pediatric cardiovascular surgical procedures provides context and practical examples of what to expect when viewing post-operative chest radiographs
This book will improve the accuracy and confidence of any radiologist, cardiologist, or clinician involved in the interpretation of pediatric chest images and is ideal for residents and fellows in radiology and pediatric cardiology.
Dr. Eisenberg’s best seller is now in its Fifth Edition—with brand-new material on PET and PET/CT imaging and expanded coverage of MRI and CT. Featuring over 3,700 illustrations, this atlas guides readers through the interpretation of abnormalities on radiographs. The emphasis on pattern recognition reflects radiologists’ day-to-day needs…and is invaluable for board preparation.
Organized by anatomic area, the book outlines and illustrates typical radiologic findings for every disease in every organ system. Tables on the left-hand pages outline conditions and characteristic imaging findings…and offer comments to guide diagnosis. Images on the right-hand pages illustrate the major findings noted in the tables.
