Imaging Informatics Professionals (IIPs) have come to play an indispensable role in modern medicine, and the scope of this profession has grown far beyond the boundaries of the PACS.
A successful IIP must not only understand the PACS itself, but also have knowledge of clinical workflow, a base in several medical specialties, and a solid IT capability regarding software interactions and networking. With the introduction of a certification test for the IIP position, a single source was needed to explain the fundamentals of imaging informatics and to demonstrate how those fundamentals are applied in everyday practice. Practical Imaging Informatics describes the foundations of information technology and clinical image management, details typical daily operations, and discusses rarer complications and issues.

Details on specific imaging modalities for different cellular and tissue engineering applications are scattered throughout articles and chapters in the literature. Gathering this information into a single reference, Imaging in Cellular and Tissue Engineering presents both the fundamentals and state of the art in imaging methods, approaches, and applications in regenerative medicine.
The book underscores the broadening scope of imaging applications in cellular and tissue engineering. It covers a wide range of optical and biological applications, including the repair or replacement of whole tissues (such as bone, cartilage, blood vessels, and bladder) and more novel artificially created support systems (such as artificial pancreas and bioartificial liver). Each chapter describes a particular application, relevant optical instrumentation, physical principles governing the imaging method, and strengths and weaknesses of the technique. The book also presents current and emerging data processing procedures.
As the field of tissue engineering moves from creating simpler outer body parts to more sophisticated internal organs, researchers need to evaluate and control how well the tissues are engineered and integrated into the living body. Suitable for both experts and newcomers in bioengineering and biomedical imaging, this book shows researchers how to apply imaging techniques to next-generation engineered cells and tissues. It helps them assess the suitability of specific imaging modalities for applications with various functional requirements.

Chapter-opener outlines and text boxes highlighting key points and differential diagnoses make this introductory textbook very user-friendly. The “Suggested Readings” at the end of each chapter are a valuable reference tool for those who desire additional information about a particular topic.
This extensively illustrated guide is the first English-language text to present a comprehensive analysis of the sonographic aspects of abdominal transplantation. The book provides full coverage of the entire process, from initial assessment to the peri-operative period and long-term follow-up. It gives you essential information on color doppler ultrasound and other imaging techniques which are crucial to the early detection of complications.
With each chapter written by a leading expert in that particular subspecialty, the book begins with general background information and techniques, then goes on to address imaging procedures used in transplantation for the liver, kidneys, pancreas, and small bowel. Ultrasound, as opposed to CT or MRI, is the primary imaging modality utilized for both preliminary investigations and interventional procedures.
Ultrasound of Abdominal Transplantation is an invaluable professional resource for all radiologists, sonographers, surgeons, and physicians who need an insight into techniques of transplant ultrasound as well as an overview of the related medical and surgical management issues.
