 Radiology  Comments Off on Imaging Spine After Treatment: A Case-based Atlas
Jan 242019
 

This book reviews in detail the role of neuroradiological imaging in the evaluation of patients who have undergone surgery or interventional radiology procedures, and particularly its value in the documentation of normal and pathological post-treatment changes, detection of complications, and follow-up.

The opening sections describe pretreatment images in various conditions, including trauma, degenerative disc disease, and osteoporosis, and the different types of neurosurgical and interventional treatment that may be used. The post-treatment appearances of normal sequelae and complications on conventional radiography, CT, and MRI are then documented in detail on the basis of a large series of clinical cases, with a wealth of images. Guidance is provided on selection of one or a combination of imaging modalities. This book will be an invaluable clinical and research tool not only for neuroradiologists but also for neurosurgeons, and interventional radiologists.

Imaging and Intervention in Cardiology

 Cardiovascular, Radiology  Comments Off on Imaging and Intervention in Cardiology
Jan 222019
 

The concept of the book is to give clinicians and interventionalists a unique, up to the minute overview of the use of cardiac imaging techniques in combination with modern interventional procedures such as thrombolysis, catheter-based coronary revascularization, valvuloplasty and interventions in congenital heart disease. The book is divided into sections reflecting the types of interventions listed above. Each section contains several chapters describing how each imaging modality can be used before, during or after intervention to improve outcome, select the optimal interventional strategy or to simply foster our understanding of the interaction between disease and interventional therapy. The idea of the book is to select a number of interventions and imaging techniques stressing scintigraphic and ultrasound techniques rather than producing an encyclopedia which would combine all possible imaging modalities with every type of cardiac intervention. The conjunction of interventional cardiology and an appropriate imaging modality is an interesting concept not only for diagnostic purposes and for the objective documentation of success or failure, but may also provide a significant contribution to quality control and thus indirectly to cost containment in the era of interventional cardiology.

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology, Surgery  Comments Off on Diseases of the Brain, Head and Neck, Spine: Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Techniques
Jan 212019
 

The International Diagnostic Course in Davos (IDKD) offers a unique learning experience for imaging specialists in training as well as for experienced radi­ ologists and clinicians wishing to be updated on the current state of the art and the latest developments in the fields of imaging and image-guided interventions. This annual course is focused on organ systems and diseases rather than on modalities. This year’s program deals with neuroradiology and radiology of the spine. During the course, the topics are discussed in group seminars and in ple­ nary sessions with lectures by world-renowned experts and teachers. While the seminars present state-of-the-art summaries, the lectures are oriented towards fu­ ture developments. These proceedings represent a condensed version of the contents presented un­ der the 20 topics dealing with imaging and interventional therapies in the neuro­ radiology and radiology of the spine. The topics encompass all the relevant imag­ ing modalities including conventional x-rays, computed tomography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and magnetic resonance angiography, as well as image-guid­ ed interventional techniques. The volume is designed to be an “aide-memoire” for the course participants so that they can fully concentrate on the lectures and participate in the discussions without the need of taking notes. Additional information is found on the web page of the IDKD (httpll:www.idkd.ch).

Advances in Imaging Techniques in Ischemic Heart Disease

 Cardiovascular, Radiology  Comments Off on Advances in Imaging Techniques in Ischemic Heart Disease
Jan 182019
 

In recent years there have been tremendous advances in cardiac imaging techniques covering the complete spectrum from echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, magnetic resonance imaging to contrast angiography. With respect to these noninvasive and invasive cardiac imaging modalities, marked technological developments have allowed the cardiologist to visualize the myocardium in a far more refined manner than conventional imaging was capable of. Echocardiography has extended its domain with intravascular ultrasound, cardiovascular nuclear imaging has added positron emission tomography to its line of research, magnetic resonance imaging has been broadened with magnetic resonance angiography and spectroscopy, and finally contrast angiograp­ hy has widened its scope with excellent quantitation programs. For all these imaging modalities it is true that the application of dedicated quantitative analytic software packages enables the evaluation of the imaging studies in a more accurate, reliable, and reproducible manner. It goes without saying that these extensions and achievements have resulted in improved diagnostics and subsequently in improved patient care. Particularly in patients with ischemic heart disease, major progress has been made to detect coronary artery disease in an early phase of the disease process, to follow the atherosclerotic changes in the coronary arteries, to establish the functional and metabolic consequences of the luminal obstructions, and to accurately assess the results of interventional therapy.

Contrast Agents in Liver Imaging

 Radiology  Comments Off on Contrast Agents in Liver Imaging
Jan 172019
 

Recent advances in surgical procedures for the management of focal liver diseases have greatly increased the demand for diagnostic accuracy. So far these demands have been only partially met by further technical developments such as colour coded duplex sonography, spiral CT and marked improvements in magnetic resonance imaging. It is becoming increasingly clear that liver specific contrast media are essential for utilizing these technical developments to their fullest advantage in patient care. Against this background, a workshop was held to explore the current methods of diagnostic imaging of the liver and to try and establish a profile for the future liver specific contrast media. The pathologist’s introductory and general overview is followed by chapters on the individual imaging procedures such as ultrasound, CT and MRI, so that each of the three is given the attention it deserves. The book will be of interest to radiologists from the various disciplines, and also those who plan and perform therapies, particularly surgeons and internists.

The Imaging of Infection and Inflammation

 Infectious Diseases, Radiology  Comments Off on The Imaging of Infection and Inflammation
Jan 152019
 

Despite 50 years of antibiotics, infection remains a major source of both morbidity and mortality. Immunosuppression, either secondary to drugs in transplant recipients or secondary to HIV, has expanded the number of microorganisms that are known to be pathogenic in man. Imaging of infection has a vital role both in the initial diagnosis and in the continuing management of patients with infection or suspected infection. Functional imaging using nuclear medicine techniques has a unique role to play in identifying sites of infection in a wide range of patients with varying clinical conditions. This book, written by a series of experts not just in the fields of nuclear medicine but also infectious disease and radiology, discusses the role of nuclear medicine in three parts: a review of the pathophysiology of infection; a technical description of those nuclear medicine techniques which can be used in imaging infection; an extensive systematic review including thoracic, abdominal and orthopaedic infection as well as a special section on the acutely ill patient, the immunosuppressed patient and the patient with pyrexia of unknown origin. This book will be of interest to all clinicians looking after patients with infection and who need to use imaging techniques. It will also be of use to radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians who will be using these techniques clinically.
