Internal Medicine: An Illustrated Radiological Guide

By (author): Jarrah Ali Al-Tubaikh

This very well-received book, now in its second edition, equips the radiologist with the information needed in order to diagnose internal medicine disorders and their complications from the radiological perspective. It offers an easy-to-consult tool that documents the most common and most important radiological signs of a wide range of diseases, across diverse specialties, with the aid of an excellent gallery of images and illustrations. Compared with the first edition, numerous additions and updates have been made, with coverage of additional disorders and inclusion of many new images. Entirely new chapters focus on occupational medicine and toxicology imaging, chiropractic medicine, and energy and quantum medicine. Internal Medicine – An Illustrated Radiological Guide puts the radiologist in the internal medicine physician’s shoes. It teaches radiologists how to think in terms of disease progression and complications, explains where to look for and to image these complications, and identifies the best modalities for reaching a diagnosis. It will also benefit internal medicine physicians by clarifying the help that radiology can offer them and assisting in the choice of investigation for diagnostic confirmation.

Traumatologia scheletrica: Imaging integrato clinico-radiologico (Italian Edition)

La radiologia tradizionale riveste e mantiene un ruolo fondamentale nello studio della patologia scheletrica in ortopedia e in particolare in traumatologia. Di qui la necessità, per non dire l’obbligo, di conoscere e parlare un linguaggio comune in termini di esecuzione, riconoscimento e descrizione condiviso da specialisti di diverse discipline, come ad esempio radiologo e traumatologo.
Partendo dalla classificazione AO (e da altre classificazioni utilizzate soprattutto a livello articolare) questo atlante di traumatologia si propone di rappresentare, a partire dall’esecuzione tecnica, le immagini radiografiche delle fratture, stabilendone i criteri di correttezza e integrandole quando necessario con esami TC e RM, e affronta le varie lesioni dal punto di vista diagnostico, ma soprattutto clinico. I capitoli sono suddivisi per segmenti scheletrici e, grazie anche alla collaborazione con gli specialisti ortopedici, ogni immagine radiografica è corredata di referto e commento clinico. Vengono classificate le lesioni dello scheletro appendicolare e del rachide, con un apposito capitolo di indispensabile completamento delle lesioni in età di accrescimento.
Il volume fornisce ai vari operatori, ma in particolare ai Medici Radiologi, un valido strumento di studio e di consultazione, illustrando per ciascuna lesione il corretto iter procedurale.

Cardiovascular Imaging

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Yi-Hwa Liu, Frans J. Th. Wackers

A host of imaging techniques are available to clinical cardiologists, including nuclear imaging, echocardiography, computerized tomography, and magnetic-resonance imaging. Chamber size, ventricular function, valvular function, coronary anatomy, and myocardial perfusion are among a wide array of cardiac characteristics that can all be assessed noninvasively.

Cardiovascular Imaging systematically reviews each of these major techniques and provides clinical data from well-designed research studies. Following a brief overview of non-invasive cardiac imaging and the stress modalities used to detect coronary disease, case-based chapters are devoted to each of the various imaging techniques. The final chapter provides a glimpse of future possibilities, particularly with respect to molecular imaging. The text is illustrated throughout with amply-sized images.

Demonstrating the values and limitations of the imaging techniques, the book enables practitioners to determine which test, in which patient population, and for which purpose would be the most appropriate to use.

Abdominal Ultrasound for Surgeons

Abdominal Ultrasound for Surgeons provides a comprehensive guide to the use of ultrasonography in surgical practice of abdominal diseases. The content is divided into three major sections, with the final section being dedicated to the logistics of incorporating ultrasound into a surgical practice. In Part I : The Basics, the principles of ultrasonography are reviewed focusing on ultrasound physics, equipment and instrumentation. A detailed approach to the various scanning methods with image and artifact interpretation is demonstrated with illustrations and images. In Part II : Anatomy, Application and Intervention, ultrasound anatomy and its use in surgery are detailed. The normal and abnormal ultrasound anatomy of specific abdominal organ or organ systems (esophagus, liver, pancreas, biliary, stomach, anorectum, vascularabdominal wall) with illustrations and images are demonstrated. A state-of-the-art review of the major applications of surgical abdominal ultrasound is provided in this section ranging from trauma ultrasound and laparoscopic staging to techniques in ultrasound guidance and three-dimensional targeting. In Part III : Ultrasound in Surgical Practice, the practical aspects of incorporation of ultrasound into a surgical practice are addressed with topics ranging from credentialing to coding and billing.

Abdominal Ultrasound for Surgeons will serve as a very useful resource and guide for surgeons and students with little to some experience in ultrasound, including practicing surgeons, surgical fellows and surgical residents.

Defining the Medical Imaging Requirements for a Rural Health Center (Communications in Medical and Care Compunetics)

This book presents the patient management challenges that rural health centers face, and establishes the criteria for the type of medical imaging services that should be available in such facilities. To make the work of the center’s health practitioners more effective and efficient, the book assesses what health conditions may require medical attention in those centers. Information is provided on how to use basic imaging modalities, such as radiography and ultrasound, emphasizing the need for thoughtful service planning, careful equipment and imaging protocol selection, continuous staff training, and the implementation of quality control programs. The book is also a valuable resource for those physicians, medical physicists and service engineers who provide virtual and physical consultations to meet these needs.

Rural health centers are established to prevent patients from being forced to travel to distant urban medical facilities. To manage patients properly, rural health centers should be part of regional and more complete systems of medical health care installations in the country on the basis of a referral and counter-referral program. Thus, the centers should have the infrastructure needed to transport patients to urban hospitals when they need more complex health care. The coordination of all the activities is possible only if rural health centers are led by strong and dedicated managers.
