Imaging of the Airways: Functional and Radiologic Correlations

 Radiology  Comments Off on Imaging of the Airways: Functional and Radiologic Correlations
Feb 212018
 

Written by recognized authorities on thoracic imaging, this volume is the first to examine all modalities—both noninvasive and invasive—for visualizing the airways. Emphasis is placed on correlating CT images with bronchoscopy, to aid in interpreting CT findings and in performing interventional bronchoscopic procedures.

After a review of airway imaging techniques and anatomy, the book presents correlating CT and bronchoscopic images for a wide range of pathologic entities. Detailed chapters examine the trachea and central bronchi, the diagnosis of bronchiectasis, and the use of CT in diagnosing small airway disease. A chapter on functional imaging of the airways is also included.

CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy, Second Edition

 Anatomy, Radiology  Comments Off on CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy, Second Edition
Feb 212018
 

Since it was originally published in 2010, CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy has been an invaluable aid to a wide variety of radiotherapy professionals, both qualified and in training. This second edition has many welcome additions and updates, while retaining its original user-friendly format.

All essential structures relevant to radiotherapy are described and depicted on 3D images generated from radiotherapy planning systems. System-based labelled CT images, taken in relevant imaging planes and patient positions, build up understanding of relational anatomy and CT interpretation; and all images are accompanied by comprehensive commentary. This simplified approach enables the reader to gain image interpretation skills quickly and easily.

The second edition of CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy supports radiotherapy staff as they play a more active part in structure outlining and increasingly routine cone-beam CT verification. The text has been updated throughout, to reflect recent changes in technology and practice, and the reader is further supported with additional self-test questions and more interesting pathology examples. There is new information on safety in CT, use of contrast and minimising the impact of artefacts; and the dedicated lymph node sections have been refreshed, with detailed delineation of common nodal regions. New dedicated ‘Structure Focus’ sections concentrate on anatomical structures that are challenging yet clinically relevant for trial protocols or included in updated guidelines, including the penile bulb, coronary arteries, brachial plexus and complex supra-sellar regions.

The unique combination of the authors’ knowledge of both current and emerging radiotherapy requirements and CT image interpretation has again produced an accessible and highly relevant text that provides sufficient detail to satisfy the most inquisitive of students and support radiotherapy practice for a wide range of professionals.

Proton radiotherapy accelerators

 Radiology  Comments Off on Proton radiotherapy accelerators
Feb 182018
 

Hadronic radiotherapy uses particle beams to treat tumors located near critical body structures and tumors that respond poorly to conventional photon and electron beam radiotherapy. Initial research in hadronic radiotherapy was performed using accelerators built for physics research. The good results of the proton and ion therapy programs have enhanced the tendency to use protontherapy as a routine method. There are about 20 working protontherapy facilities (first, second and third generation) and more than 30 centers are planned. This book presents the first comprehensive overview of the field with a discussion on the fundamental basis of particle physics and radiobiology, as well as review of clinical and technical specifications and designs for proton radiotherapy. In particular, the current designs of proton and heavy ion accelerators, beam delivery systems, gantries, beam monitoring and dosimetry systems, control and safety systems, patient positioning and immobilization devices, and ancillary treatment facilities are widely discussed.
